San Antonio, TX: Serving the military community has always been a priority for Cruising Kitchens. When Henry and April Santos approached the company to help them bring authentic island cuisine to Killeen and the troops of Fort Hood, they felt honored to have been selected as their fabricator of choice.
The Santos family is now the proud owner of a 22’ custom food truck named Zarpana’s Island Grill. April says she cannot wait to work for herself and bring delicious, authentic food to her community, not to mention Fort Hood, where her husband was once stationed. She and her family are extremely eager to bring mouthwatering meals to family, friends, soldiers, Texans, and more. April will also employ both of her sons, making this the definition of a “Mom & Pop” operation.
According to April, working with Cruising Kitchens was enjoyable, “Entirely painless, and the generosity of Cameron and Cruising Kitchens as a whole was heartwarming.” She also mentioned the consultation services Cruising Kitchens offered throughout all stages of the project, helping her to make the best choices on platform, equipment, and design. Said Marcos Resendez, Vice President of Cruising Kitchens, “Helping others serve their community demonstrates the commitment we have to our values and how those values align with our customers. The fact that this project was for a family who has sacrificed so much through their service to our country was icing on the cake.”
