Coming This Fall! Food for the Brain: Mindgrub Cafe Debuts Food Truck


Baltimore-based digital innovation agency, Mindgrub Technologies, was founded on the principle of a hunger for knowledge and liberation of ideas. As the tech company continues to grow, so does the drive to showcase brand principles through new avenues - one being, the business of brain food. Mindgrub supports scientific evidence that proper nourishment leads to better productivity and a well functioning brain. Therefore, the tech company will be debuting its first food truck this Fall, named “Mindgrub Cafe.”

Founded by husband and wife team - Todd Marks, CEO of Mindgrub Technologies and Nikki McGowan, Owner of Madame BBQ and Madame Cours de Cuisine - Mindgrub Cafe will service the Baltimore Metro business community by way of corporate lunches, drop catering and food truck festivals. Diverging from a common food truck model to deliver heavy and sometimes less than healthy menu items, Mindgrub Cafe’s menu will be brain food for knowledge workers.

Mindgrub Cafe Chef and Co-Founder, Nikki McGowan stated, “We are focusing on foods that will energize you so that you don’t go to your desk after lunch and take a nap. We’ll be featuring salmon, roasted turkey, black beans and grilled chicken as pressed sandwiches or bowls filled with ingredients like avocado and pineapple. They’ll be topped with amazing sauces to include kale hemp pesto, blueberry sauce and mole. We will be using farro, quinoa and chickpeas to make some healthy sides. Our coffee roasted veggie side will be sure to wake you up!”

In conjunction, with the debut of the Mindgrub Cafe Food Truck, McGowan has been working tirelessly in managing the construction of a commissary kitchen on the ground floor of McHenry Row II in the same building as Mindgrub Technologies at 1215 E. Fort Avenue in Baltimore. The kitchen will be a shared space for building occupants and food truck partners to prep, cook and host events. The kitchen will be opening adjacent to the long-awaited Diamondback Brewery and Taphouse, also opening in Fall of 2016.
