Based on student input and favorable campus reaction to its pilot mobile food truck vendor program, the MoGo Chef food truck has arrived and will be serving food at Stony Brook University weekdays from 11 am to 4 pm on Toll Drive between the Melville Library and the Stony Brook Union.
As noted by students on the Faculty Student Association’s (FSA) Dining Service Planning Committee, mobile food trucks provide additional meal options on campus and help address “the need for speed” during food service rush periods when there are breaks between classes.
The bright green MoGo Chef food truck offers daily specials and a regular menu that includes cajun turkey burgers on brioche or pretzel roll, Middle Eastern chick pea salad, foot-long cheesesteak heroes, fresh-cut fries, non-alcoholic margaritas and a variety of fresh pastries. Those looking to satisfy their sweet tooth can enjoy jumbo chocolate chip or black and white cookies and decadent brownies. The full menu is available at www.campusdining.org. MoGo Chef does not accept the Meal Plan.
MoGo Chef is family-owned and operated by Vito Coraci, a former marketing guru, and his wife Geralyn, an attorney and Stony Brook University alum. Vito promises that “customers will receive generous portions and can look forward to a great variety of daily specials, ranging from a grilled Cubana sandwich to a fresh ‘Strawberry Fields’ salad.”
Vito’s marketing background is evident as the 24-foot long food truck is equipped with digital menus that flank two 6-foot wide serving windows. The truck also has QR code stickers that allow customers to quickly sign up for the latest news and special offers from MoGo Chef. Customers can also text “foodtruck” to 99000 to receive promotions via mobile device.
MoGo Chef is brought to you by FSA, which serves and supports the University community. In keeping with FSA’s mission, proceeds from FSA operations are returned to the University to benefit students. More information is available at http://fsa.sunysb.edu/about/proceeds/.
