about trixie

As a young girl I would spend hours in my play kicthen.  That kitchen eventually turned into "playing restaurant."  I had no idea then that I would spend a good portion of my career in the food industry, eventually become a small business owner and one of the Valley's first mobile food vendors. Looking back now, i see it was inevitable. And I honestly can say, I wouldn't change a thing. 
On my mom's side of the family, I come from a long line of women who love to cook and bake.  As a child, I acquired a love for the culinary arts from my mom, who would eventually go to culinary school herself.  She had,  in turn, learned from her mom, my grandmother, who came to this country in 1950 from Austria .  Her mother, my great-grandmother (Omi)  was a chef for wealthy families from the 1930's through the 1950's. To the right (top) is a photo of her in the kitchen of the Schlos Paternion (Castle of Paternion) which was the small village in Austria in which she lived. She worked there for the Italian Count Foscari-Widmann from 1948-1954. She was the head chef and was responsible for cooking meals and baking desserts for up to 25 family members with the meals each consisting of several courses. 
On my dad's side of the family, my grandfather (Poppop Boyle) attended Baking School in 1929 at the age of 14 (pictured to the right, he is the second from the bottom).  He would go on to work for bakeries for the majority of his career until retiring. My brother, Alan, is the head chef at Solstice Kitchen, one of South Carolina's top rated restaurants year after year and my other brother, Thomas is in the food industry as well. 

After many years of restaurant/bar life, I would cook and bake and my friends would always ask why I haven't started my own business doing just that.  I loved it and finally, one day, I did it.   I used a long-time nickname,  had some help from two great friends with the logo, and I started baking as a part time job out of my home.  It quickly grew and before I knew it, I was getting up at 4 a.m to bake before going to work my full time job! It was then that I decided that it was something I wanted to pursue further, and with that came the emergence of Trixies Truck!  2018 marks my 6th year as a "food trucker" and I am proud to be a pioneer to the food truck industry in the Lehigh Valley. It has certainly been one wild ride!  I look forward to seeing you at one of my stops with the truck!  I hope you enjoy eating my creations as much as I enjoy making them for you! 

                                                                Have a sweet day! 
Greater Lehigh Valley Mobile Food Alliance 
Co-founder and President 
Tracey Mathews and the rest of the GLVMFA Board members have been busy meeting with venues planning events to create amazing food truck festivals!  They have also been going to the cities in hopes of working together to make necessary changes to the outdated ordinances that exist prohibiting the food trucks from vending in the downtown areas where the majority of foot traffic exists. They are working with the Institute for Justice, a civil liberties law firm  out of Washington, D.C. and look forward to seeing their efforts come to fruition sometime in the near future! 
The GLVMFA is a non-profit organization whose mission statement is to support and promote the growth of the mobile food industry in the Greater Lehigh Valley.
