Da Local Boy LLC was established in 2021 in Lake County, IL. Our family moved to Illinois during the peak of the pandemic for my wife’s school. I was a private chef in Maui. Being an island boy, we were homesick. We missed the taste of the islands. That’s when we decided to start sharing our food with our coworkers. Eventually, people started to recognize our work. We started a pop up tent and within a few months of operation, with the support and love we have gotten from the community we were able to get our food truck.
