locally driven × Finger lakes Food
The Goods Catering & The Good Truck are a unique Finger Lakes outfit, serving up a wide range of locally-driven gourmet fare at weddings, festivals, special events, pop-ups and more!
The Good Truck was established by friends Mandy Beem-Miller + Lily Aceto in the fall of 2010 with a simple vision: a fast-food setting with a slow-food attitude. After years of working in various cooking, farming, & restaurant gigs the world over, the two came together, back home in the Ithaca area, to create a local foods driven taco wagon. Inspired by many of their previous jobs, collective love for enjoying a good meal, and the bounty of Finger Lakes growers and producers, The Good Truck was born.
Knowing that fresh, seasonal food just tastes better is part of the equation, so is the fact that eating local benefits the community, the body, and the planet. Just about everything The Good Truck serves up is homemade, from scratch, using the freshest, localist, most seasonal ingredients, no malarkey.
The Good Truck cuisine has been given many designations from Ithaca-Mex to locavore-fusion to gourmet hot truck and beyond. Some people simply call it the Taco Truck. What ever the description, our classic menu features locally produced goods with a definite Mexican flare.
After 8 successful years serving tacos & more out of our sweet 7×17 V-nose trailer at special events, weddings, & more we’ve decided to expand!
The Goods Catering builds on our classics and offers a greatly-expanded selection of appetizers & tapas, lunch & dinner menus, breakfast & brunch offerings, desserts & sweet treats, & more. We are also offering more service options, including our fun, classic “directly-from-The Good Truck” option.
We now offer on-site and buffet catering, and drop-off and a range of casual, disposable to more formal, rented china dish ware options.
The Goods Catering &/or The Good Truck are available for festivals, weddings, and special events of all sizes!
