About Us

Ash & Kris Kitchen served its first meal on May 12, 2017, on Forbes Avenue in Pittsburgh. Our first truck was tiny, and did not have enough grilling, cooling, or storage areas. Though, we managed to deliver the promised flavor and quality from customer 1 and to thousands of other customers. Frankly, we pulled it off! 

Today, Ash & Kris Kitchen is one of the most demanded food trucks in the greater Pittsburgh area. We do not only serve our neighborhood, but have contracts with many corporations, Universities, and medical institutions. We have a dedicated team that is ready to provide uninterrupted catering services to up to 1000 hungry people per night.
