My name is Steve LaRosa. I am currently working on building a food hub in Pittsburgh that would include a food truck commissary, and aquaponic farm and a workforce training program. As of this moment, I am working on this project at a local startup competition, and I was hoping I might be able to get your support for the idea. The more people and organizations I have backing this, the more likely it is that this concept will move forward. Any help or support you could give would be phenomenal.

Food Truck Evolution into a Gathering Place – the Oahu Factor
A food truck is a large vehicle equipped to cook and sell food. Food trucks are on the front line of the street food industry that serves an estimated 2.5 billion people every day. In the US, food trucks are a $1.2 billion industry.
A modern-day food truck isn’t just an ordinary taco truck one might find at a construction site. These gourmet trucks’ menus run the gamut of ethnic and fusion cuisine. Often focusing on limited but creative dishes at reasonable prices, they offer customers a chance to experience food they otherwise may not eat.
Oahu Factor Evolution
The humble food truck however can be the platform on which to build a Gathering Place which we call the Oahu factor named after that Hawaiian island whose name means the Gathering Place. Communications technology is getting smarter, lower in cost and physical size and presents a great opportunity to upgrade these mobile food dispensers so they can serve the communities they visit with a far greater range of services and even serve in times of disasters as a Point Of Presence for the victims of earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados and more.
The evolution in wireless technology and the diminishing cost of digital storage devices opens amazing opportunities to equip food truck with devices which can revolutionize the role of the truck from simply functioning as a place where people ‘grab and go’ with their food.
Imagine a food truck equipped to function not only as a mobile restaurant but also as a mobile wireless TV station, a local social media center enabling people in the vicinity of the truck to meet each other and also distribute to them information about local happenings. The addition of this these new services will attract people to gather near the food truck to be entertained, socialize and be informed and in the process create a captive audience to which other services can be added by for example the installation of small vending machines to the truck to sell consumer products.
Our company, Chatting Spot Limited, markets a patent pending technology which can provide the mobile TV station with curated media content and a social media hotspot delivered through its Chatting Spot ® Wi-Fi smart hub.
The Wi-Fi smart hub is a shoe size box which is battery operated, weighs less than 3 pounds and can be attached to a food truck in a matter of minutes. The Chatting Spot ® Wi-Fi hub provides a browser based service so that anyone that enters its hotspot simply selects Chatting Spot on their smartphone or IPad Wi-Fi selection and they are immediately connected to the service without having to download an
. This makes the service truly anonymous and so users do not have to identify themselves when they view television programs or post text messages on the electronic bulletin board provided by the service or even purchasing consumer items from vending machines placed on the truck.
The truck operator is provided with Chatting Spot ® scratch cards which visitors to the truck can purchase with cash to access pay per view movies and TV programs, purchase consumer items from the vending machines or use the private text chad mode on the social media bulletin board. The Wi-Fi hub works with all major brands of smart phones, tablet and laptop computers so that users can access all these services on their own devices.
Media Content Service
Chatting Spot ® has arrangements in place with licensed movie and TV show content aggregators enabling it to provide both the equipment and the content for a food truck to function as a mobile Wi-Fi based TV station. The Chatting Spot ® Wi-Fi hub has both a wired and Wi-Fi connection which enables the truck owner to update overnight via the internet the contracted curated movies and TV shows when the truck is parked at its garage.

As a member of
we found a food truck builder from there website. November 10, 2015 me and my wife went into a contract with
Mobile Commissary Inc c/o Gary Seth Koppelman to build our food truck with in 8 to 10 weeks from November 10, 2015 so our truck should have been finished January 2016. He constantly lied about the progress of our truck and even told us to start booking events in February 2016 because our truck was almost done. We got our truck back June 3, 2016 with the help of his employees and absolutely nothing was done. Me and my wife dreams are now delayed because
Mobile Commissary Inc c/o Gary Seth Koppelman stole our money. We never thought a member of the food truck community would steal from us like a common criminal with no regard for any wrong doing. We have a contract, emails, text messages, receipt for cashier check, numerous phone calls, and a truck that looks worst than when we purchased it last year. We don’t want anyone else to fall victim to this criminal.
