We’ve revamped and relaunched our Restaurant Engine Podcast! This is the first of many interviews we’ll be doing with restaurant owners to hear the stories of how they started and grew their restaurant business.

We spoke with Steve Perlstein and Jennifer Block, who started Simmer Milwaukee food truck a year ago. You’ll hear all about:
We also learn why Steve and wife Jennifer made their decision to start with a food truck instead of a traditional restaurant. The pair expand on their menu strategies, specialty bakery items, a focus on sourcing ingredients locally and the process of delegating management so they can continue to expand their business.
Specializing in freshly-made soups and paninis with a daily selection of both vegan and gluten-free options, Simmer offers something unique for everyone – and it’s paying off. In addition to Simmer Truck, Simmer Catering is a major part of the business also – from weddings to street block parties, office lunches to charity dinners, Simmer makes the most of its’ mobility!
In fact, things are moving quickly – this November they will be opening a brick-and-mortar restaurant, Simmer Café, while keeping their food truck business going strong. We had a lot of fun talking with this creative team and know they’re only just getting started! Tune in to the podcast to hear all about Simmer’s rise to success!
