Chris Rizzo is the founder of ShaWING Food Truck in Denver, Colorado. He grew up in Rochester, NY and moved to Buffalo, NY after high school. He grew up loving Buffalo-style bar food including chicken wings, beef on weck, and chicken finger subs, among others.
In 2006, the he moved to Denver, Colorado with hopes of starting an Italian-themed food truck. But when he became frustrated with the selection of Buffalo-style goods in the Mile High City, he decided to change the concept.
“Denver is a huge beer-drinking town with countless microbreweries spread throughout the area. Buffalo bar food is the best accompaniment to beer in the world. It’s a no-brainer!” – Chris Rizzo (owner, ShaWING)
He launched ShaWING in March of 2016.
