Family and Tradition have had great importance to the Dellano family. My family history, as well as my background are two important components in establishing the family business that has grown strong today. My grandparents were originally from Naples, Italy. In the 1920’s, they came over to Newark, NJ where they settled down and started the business that would soon carry on for decades. My grandfather started a business from the money that he had saved for many years. He started out by selling traditional Italian food at various festivals located in Newark. From the moment he ventured into the food business he succeeded. Everyone looked forward to his delicious food at the festivals. The business was later passed down to my father and uncles, then finally to me. Throughout the years I have worked diligently to expand and improve my business. In 1999, I took a partner Bob Connors, who has the same values .Through our hard work and dedication we have been extremely successful in making this business well known and appreciated. Furthermore, I am proud to carry on the Dellano’s traditionVisit Website

The Melt Shop NYC was originally built and created years ago in a small area of Chicago. It was humbly created and designed by a student who studied culinary arts. He loved cooking even when he was still a child and it was his dream to build and put up his own restaurant someday. When he was studying in college, instead of going out with his friends, he made dishes and meals in their house and invited friends over. One time, one of his friends suggested that he should try using his skills for a restaurant or culinary business. It was not a bad idea, he thought, and so, with the help of his family and friends, they were able to build their small place which he called a shop in their garage. The name was derived differently because he the thought that some people often make their garage sales by themselves while he created a food stall at their garage so he called it a shop since it was small and you could think of it as a mere shop as well.Visit Website

Try Vegan® began as an idea that hit Vince Gulino at a Halloween party in 2014. He knew he wanted to spread the message of veganism and went on a mission to figure out how. He wrote a 40 page business plan and was about to start looking for investors for Try Vegan restaurant until he realized how much pressure came along with an outside investment of that magnitude. He then realized he was 26, living at home, and had some savings so he decided to take his savings for purchasing a house and invested it in himself. It was not a lot of money, but enough for him to buy a few old shuttle buses to convert into food trucks. In May 2015 he quit his job and began converting the old shuttle bus into a food truck. After a long winding road, Try Vegan® made it’s debut September 19th 2015 at a food truck festival in Trenton, NJ.
Since then, the Try Vegan’s food trucks have been fortunate enough to vend at some of the biggest festivals on the east coast including Governor’s Ball, Meadow’s Music Festival, Moonrise Music Festival, NYC Pride, Imagine Festival, and EDC Orlando. All the while, Try Vegan is promoting knowledge and awareness with our “Did You Know” sign on display for thousands of onlookers.
