A word from our Founder.
The JestGreen concept is segmented into phases of development with plans to grow into the industry leader in eco modern mobile vending. “How might you do this?”, one might ask. Well, this is how I believe that JestGreen will be able to do jest that. Let’s take a look at the mobile vending industry. From my research as far as mobile vending is concerned there are no companies with a dominant market share in this industry. Yes, there are many mobile businesses killing it across the nation. Opening brick & mortar restaurants and multiple carts or food trucks. But, how many have gone on to create identifiable brands and innovate in the industry? Not just with cool food offerings. Not with just solar panels and biofuel.
There is a greater purpose to JestGreen being a mobile entity than just being able to move around cities to key locations with amazing offerings. There is an overall greater purpose to the company that might not even matter to some. To those cold hearted few I say Profit is the ultimate goal. Simmer down now. I want to bring change to the mobile vending industry as a whole. Not by trying to. Just by doing what I set out to do. Cities are changing, the types of products sold at quick service restaurants is changing. JestGreen is here to improve the access to quality products, to improve the overall health of you and the communities that we call home.
