Chris and Jessi Rizzo are the owners of ShaWING Food Truck in Denver, Colorado. They both hail from Western New York, Jessi from Buffalo, and Chris from Rochester. They grew up loving Buffalo-style bar food including chicken wings, beef on weck, and chicken finger subs, among others.
In 2014, the couple moved to Denver, Colorado with hopes of starting an Italian-themed food truck. But when they became frustrated with the selection of Buffalo-style goods in the Mile High City, they 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)
They launched ShaWING in March of 2016.
