My journey started in 2005, when my baby sister shared her wonderful chocolate chip cookie recipe. We added some spices to satisfy our exotic, South America taste buds, and with her blessing, I began selling cookies as gifts to corporate America. I then had a dream of adding one of the world’s most important discoveries… ice cream, and our craft sammiches came into being. The business bug bit in 2007, and I traded boxes and tins for a pop-up store that hit the road in Spring & Summer, seeking out happy-go-lucky cookie and ice cream lovers.
By 2010, Craft Ice Cream Sammiches® were established, and on their way to street food fame. From that success, I decided to launch a mobile dessert truck, which helped change the culinary landscape in Southern California as part of the now famous food truck movement. In 2014, I’m excited to announce a life long dream of opening The Chunk-N-Chip Shop at 4th Street Market – an artisanal culinary hub that treasures community values in the historic, downtown Santa Ana.
While we’ve come a long way in a short space of time, one thing is for sure – my passion and adoration for the small batch community is unwavering. Chunk-N-Chip will always be a small batch business, with an appreciation of simple, fresh and seasonal ingredients. We never plan to grow too big for our boots, and are committed to creating truly Craft Ice Cream Sammiches® and smiles. While some think old-fashioned values and service died out, we say it’s only just beginning. Salud!
