StrEat Mobile Bistro Hitting the Streets of Cleveland


"We are a little different from the other food carts out there," explains Izzy Schachner, owner of the soon-to-debut StrEat Mobile Bistro. "Technically, we are considered a mobile restaurant, not a food cart. This is a full kitchen on wheels."

The larger and better equipped rig features all the necessary sanitation, prep stations, and refrigeration of a small restaurant kitchen. This obviates the need for a separate commissary, and it means StrEat will rarely run out of food.

Schachner, who also runs Cleveland Corporate Caterers and the Courthouse Café (in Federal Courthouse), says the big rig allows him to do professional production catering for the film industry, including locally shot movies, commercials and corporate production. He got the idea while serving as caterer for the independent film "Freerunner," which was shot in Cleveland last summer.
