In the 1920s mobile catering was unheard of, but in 1926 Grandma Moody saw the need for good, homemade sandwiches available on the streets of San Diego, so she loaded up the car with cold sandwiches, took to the streets, and never looked back.
Throughout the 1920s, 1930s, and World War II, business grew slowly. The Moodys were selling just enough sandwiches to stay in business. They used innovative, homemade inventions to make sandwich production quicker and easier, but the meat was still sliced one slice at a time. Each day they assembled boxed lunches that included two sandwiches, a piece of pie, and a salad, loaded the car, and sold them on street corners for $0.25 each.

Food Truck Commissary
"A one stop shop with ice, potable water, commercial kitchen, storage supplies and more. Great, caring owners that help everyone whenever they can. Food trucking would be a lot harder without Moody's." - Not So Fast Food Truck
"I own two gourmet food trucks and park them at Moody's. I have explored other commissaries only to return. Moody's is the "REAL DEAL" when it comes to accommodating food truck owners. I wouldn't park my trucks anyplace else." - New Orleans Cuisine
One of the things we love most about what we do is being a part of celebrations like weddings, birthday parties, company picnics, graduation parties, and pretty much any other excuse for people to get together and have a good time.
