In 2011, our founder, Matt Basile was working in advertising in Toronto dreaming of one day opening a sandwich shop. Despite his best efforts to develop a business plan that a bank would fully embrace with a loan, his lack of experience ultimately left him without funding. It was in this moment that Matt used his work ethic and creativity to develop Fidel Gastro’s as a pop-up food company – taking his food and brand across the city to breweries, food markets, special events and every fun experience in the city that needed food.
Today, the company has come a long way from those humble beginnings – operating one of Toronto’s most recognizable food truck brands, and offering unique and creative catering for weddings, corporate functions, office and home catering or any event that needs memorable and tasty food.
