About Wrap Shack
Food trucks: tiny mobile kitchens, with a limited menu of low-frills food served up in a fun and friendly environment. That may not be the Merriam Webster definition, but that's our take on food-trucks, and what we aim to provide at every visit to the Wrap Shack.
We’re Ben and Sarah, owners, food-curators, experience makers, and the most organized fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants kind of people you’ll ever meet. We bought our food truck in May of 2018 after a long day of weeding the yard and commiserating on the lack of joy we shared in our current jobs. We both have worked in the hospitality agency since our early-teen years, and shared the wish of owning our own restaurant. Thanks to a series of serendipitous events (and a lot of blood, sweat and tears and paperwork), we found a truck in Delaware, our dream plot of land on Islington street in Portsmouth, and a way to convince the city to allow us to operate. It took 6 months, but in November of 2018, we were granted our permits and have been seasonally operating ever since!
Our desire to own a restaurant has not died. In fact, our food truck is a key step in getting us there. We are continuing to hone our skills and generate some capital in the process—restaurants are expensive! We are constantly adding to our “Future Restaurant” wish list, and keep working for the day we can make it a reality. In the meantime, our hope is for the Wrap Shack to be a place known for good food, friendly service, and a fun and easygoing environment. We consider ourselves to be pretty straightforward people so it makes the most sense for our food and vibe to be straightforward as well.
We (well Sarah anyways) could talk for hours** about our past, present and future plans but we’ll call it a Wrap for now.***
**Ben won’t let her because frankly, we don't have the time.
