Specialising in meatballs, Delectaballs started in August 2013 and after 3 years are doing very well in their food truck they have recently stepped into the retail market and are now looking to expand their take home packs onto supermarket shelves!
David had the idea of a meatball and wine bar many years ago and over time after looking for locations and a lack of funding the idea passed....until his partner had the great idea of a food truck. So with his father's help, they started working on fitting out a small truck and after only a few months Delectaballs was born. They affectionally gave their truck the name Mr Darcy, because they think he's handsome.
From the classic Italian meatball to more creative concepts like the bacon meatball, Delectaballs source all of their ingredients locally and all of their products are hand crafted...including rolling ALL the meatballs!
The creative spark, the ability to constantly move with the ideas that come to their minds and fulfil them, keeps them going and they both love seeing customers reactions to new ideas and flavour combinations.
Delectaballs has a loyal following which is like having a big group of friends to them and they wouldn't have it any other way! It is a very stressful business, but so rewarding and they love the customers they get to interact with, the creativity they can bring and thats it is all their OWN!
We asked David to tell us something about himself that you wouldn't normally hear about him...He said "I love to watch commercials. I find them completely genius!! How a jingle or a product can stay in your head for years. Im currently singing the ‘ i like aeroplane jelly’ song as i write this" - Watch this space for a Delectaballs ad maybe???
