Swizzler's journey began in 2014, when college friends followed a dream to launch a food truck serving grass-fed beef, hot dogs and hand-cut fries in Washington, D.C.
Our mission was to teach an old dog new tricks, changing the perception of the 'mystery meat' hot dog. We sourced 100% grass-fed beef hot dogs, spiral-cut each one for optimal grilling, and served them on locally-baked buns with our house-made toppings.
But as we’ve learned more about the food industry and spoke to our guests, we found a bigger calling:
While hot dogs will always be a part of what we do, we don’t want to stop there.
We can all remember the joy of our favorite childhood foods. Hot dogs at the ballpark. Burgers fresh off the grill at a backyard bbq. Fishing crispy french fries out of the bag from your favorite fast food joint.
But as we got older, these happy memories were replaced by fast food hangovers and nightmares inspired by Netflix documentaries about where our food comes from. Until now.
We believe that fast food can be a force for good. Our purpose is to share the joys of fast food while leaving people and the planet better instead of worse. We call it real american eats.
Fast food just got real.
