Jonnie G’s Rides Mobile Restaurant Boom at Jersey Shore-- Switching Focus to Private Parties and Events
Winner of Best Food Truck in Monmouth for Comfort in 2013 and
Runner Up for Best Burger
OCEAN, NJ June 17, 2015—Inspired by the boom in demand for mobile restaurants at the Shore, Jonnie G’s is shifting gears from its traditional focus on beach service to private parties and events all across Central New Jersey.
“Parties and events are where we shine. Over the past year the demand has been huge, but with our commitment to the beach over the weekend, we couldn’t fulfill all those requests” notes Rose Grossman, who with her husband Jon Grossman owns Jonnie G’s.
“Now our schedule will allow us to take on more of these events, where we are particularly suited,” she added. “People like being guests at their own party. By hiring us, people get quality food without the bother of planning, cooking, and setting up. Guests still get excellent food, and but it’s much easier on the host.”
Jonnie G’s has been in business for over 12 years. The company started as a Food Truck service at Asbury Park beach where Jonnie G’s built up a strong reputation for excellent classic Jersey Shore pork roll, egg and cheese; top quality hamburgers and mini-burgers; and lump crab cake sandwiches, to name only a few of Jonnie G’s specialties. In 2013, Jonnie G’s won an award for Best Comfort Food and was a runner up for Best Burger.
Rose Grossman attributes Jonnie G’s success to a number of factors including high quality; periodic updates of the menu; the addition of certain vegetarian and healthier options; a friendly atmosphere; and adapting menus to specific venues.
As one happy customer from Ocean said, “The food is always fresh; Jon and his staff are always friendly, and they serve the best burgers at the Jersey Shore.”
When it comes to special events, Jonnie G’s can handle all sizes of parties, and sometimes also provides outdoor movies—an unusual offering for a Food Truck. The business also prides itself on flexibility in the party package menus offered. Although Jonnie G’s has a number of standard menus, the company is always willing to work with each customer to customize the food to make the party extra special. “Not many mobile food providers offer this kind of variety,” she added.
Customers also love the fact that Jonnie G’s is family owned and operated. As one of our customers told us: “Everything is delicious. One thing is better than the next and the service is always friendly, no matter what the request.”
For a typical private party, Jonnie G’s provides unlimited food services for two and a half hours. Jonnie G’s supplies all the drinks, paper products, condiments and even trash removal. “It makes it easier for the host to attend the party and have fun. Plus, it’s hassle-free,” explains Rose.
Rose says that although the business is known for their classic hamburgers, at the height of summer, clambakes are particularly popular. As Marian from Bayville, New Jersey, put it, “Everyone loved the clambake. Our guests still bring up the great feeling that your food created.”
