Rico Peru's story started back in Peru almost 25 years ago when Teresa and her husband Mario made the decision to open their own restaurant. Teresa and Mario ventured into opening a traditional Peruvian restaurant which operated in the City of Lima for 17 years. There, they started off by offering breakfast only, mainly fruit juice and sandwiches to the locals, and so pleased and inspired were they by the warm reception they got from their customers that after a couple of months they went on to add lunch and dinner choices to their menu as well. This led to also catering for construction workers and other businesses around their local area. Their restaurant gave them the opportunity to perfect their cooking techniques and methods of embracing the great variety of flavours which Peruvian cuisine has to offer.

Their restaurant in Lima closed in order to make it possible for them to fulfil their dream of joining their daughter Fiorella in Canada so as to continue their family tradition and build something beautiful together. In 2012 after their family reunification in Canada they started sharing with Fiorella their dream of following the same path they had started in Peru. With their dream in mind, Katherin learned about the City of Ottawa’s new food truck opportunities and then went on to apply for the program in December last year. The rest is history and the present moment a gift from the past with many more blessings to come.
