It’s hard to believe that we are kicking of our 3rd season of Food Truck Friday with the Bozeman community, but it’s happening folks! You’ll find your favorites in the lot: Grille 406, Mo’Bowls, Tumbleweeds, Oba Acai, and we are really excited to introduce Sauce! to the FTF faithful! So, in celebration of Food Truck Friday III we’re dedicating this next couple of blog posts to the trucks of FTF. First up Sauce! and Oba.
When & How did you get started in the Food Truck Biz?
In may 2016 Sauce opened. After culinary school and a number of years working as a chef, I knew I wanted to have my own business, but not necessarily a brick and mortar restaurant. In late 2015, everything seemed to come together and the time was right to buy the truck and start Sauce!
What’s your favorite dish that you serve?
Our Bahn Mi Sandwich. It’s also a customer favorite!
Sauce’s signature sandwich: the Bahn Mi.
What’s your favorite thing about being in the Food Truck Biz?
The food truck and catering business is so dynamic that it always keeps me on my toes. We love being able to provide great local food to a variety of clientele, from global street food served from the truck to coursed out farm to table meals for special events. Gallatin Valley has so many incredible producers which allows us to source our ingredients locally and change our menus based on what is in season and freshest. Also, we have the best staff in the business (though we are probably biased) and are fortunate to be part of a great community of mobile vendors in Bozeman.
Where’s your regular perch?
We move around Bozeman and the surrounding area. That’s the beauty of being on wheels! This year we have ramped up the catering side of the business and will be doing a lot of private events like weddings and corporate parties. We will never abandon the food truck side though and you can find us at festivals like Red Ants Pants Music Festival and the Montana Folk Festival, weekly events like Mobile Mondays at The Emerson, Music on Main, and of course Food Truck Fridays.
Do you have a favorite event/venue?
Music on Main
Where did your truck come from?
The truck is an old laundry delivery truck from Livingston that was converted to a food truck by the previous owner. It was formally the Amok truck in Bozeman

When & How did you get started in the Food Cart biz?
The cart was opened Late April Early May after a trip home to Brazil.
Why smoothie bowls?

Tell me a little about Acai and Pitaya?
Acai and Pitaya are some of the worlds best super fruits. Allowing many health benefits with a fun and funky way of eating.

You have a new store front. Where is it located?
Yes we do! We just opened our store next to Kohls. We feature smoothie bowls as well as our favorite Brazilian dishes and more!
What does a acai/pitaya bowl consist of?
We serve Acai and Pitaya Bowls which are both served with granola, your fruit of your choice, and the topped with any other dry topping of your choice.
What’s your favorite thing about being in the Food Cart Biz?
Our Customers, Downtown is such a lively place with tons of friendly people and customers.
Do you have a favorite event/venue? (besides the Architect’s Wife of course 🙂 )
The Pitaya bowl.
There are four owners & I hear there’s an interesting story about how you met. Can you tell me about that?
Basically two love stories with two different couples that started in Brazil then came to Bozeman. We met each other (the other couple) downtown due to our similar language (Portuguese) being spoken. And the rest is history as they say.
Food Truck Friday happens today in the parking lot of Architect’s Wife. Join us for lunch and delicious treats from 11:30 – 2:00 along with Tumbleweed’s, Mo’Bowls, Grille 406, Oba and introducing Sauce!.
