Top tips for hosting a perfect catered event

Sal’s Eats offers a wide range of homemade Italian dishes, including:

  • Pasta fagioli (pasta and beans)
  • Minestrone soup with sausage and pork tenderloin
  • Chicken parmesan with broccoli and garlic bread


If you’re looking for something lighter, try one of their salads or sandwiches like the chicken Caesar wrap or a Philly cheese steak sandwich with melted provolone cheese.

The Premise

Sal’s Eats is a food truck that serves Italian dishes. The business is based in Lodi, California and travels around the San Joaquin Valley area.

The owner of Sal’s Eats is Chef Sally Fandrich. She came up with the idea for her food truck after she graduated from culinary school and wanted to start something on her own. She had always known that she would love to cook for people but didn’t want to go into restaurants because they were too stressful for her personality type; however, when she saw how successful other food trucks were becoming at the time, she decided it was perfect for her.

Chef Sally Fandrich is a great example of how food truck owners can take the concept and run with it. From humble beginnings as a kid who loved cooking, he has grown her business over the years into something truly special. I was lucky enough to get an inside look at what makes Sal’s Eats so unique–from the homemade Italian dishes they serve up daily at their brick-and-mortar location in Lodi (which also serves as headquarters for all things related to catering) all the way down to their dedication towards quality customer service (they even go out of their way sometimes just so people feel happy!).s
