Malisa & Me mobile café owners Dan and Malisa Shults have found a niche market in Phuket, delivering a tasty variety of food and drink to customers around the island from the comfort of their travelling food truck.
Their unique food truck was specially made in Bangkok. Dan says the
trucks are incredibly popular in the United States, so when looking to start up a business, they figured the same idea might work here.
Malisa has worked in the tourism industry, and Dan is a student at Prince of Songkla University studying hospitality management, but the couple were looking for a new business venture.
The simple but great-tasting sandwiches are reasonably priced, with the pair offering vegetable or chicken quesadillas, grilled sandwiches (including pizza, mexican, tuna and bacon, barbecued pork), plus s’mores (B85) and the famous American peanut butter and jelly sandwich (B70).
Malisa and Dan also make great iced drinks – all created using homemade syrup –including the unique pumpkin flavoured ice latte.
The couple have big plans for the business, including perhaps a franchise over the next few years.
But for the meantime they are happy driving around the streets of Naiharn and
wider Phuket, ready to deliver fresh, home-made food to eager customers.
Disclaimer: the mobile café is on its way to becoming an institution at The Phuket News’ Kathu office, where Dan and Malisa arrive to feed the hungry staff twice a week.
