Husband and wife team Masa and Becky Chen founded Mayo & Mustard initially as a food truck business with a mission to “to spread the Mayo & Mustard sandwich experience and captivate the appetites of those who love sandwiches.”
After just a year in business, the food truck received a glowing review from the discerning SFWeekly food blog, along with a “Best of” Award from the publication. The truck was a hit!
With a near 5-star Yelp profile, it seemed that Masa and Becky had achieved their mission.
Not ones to rest on their laurels, Masa and Becky’s next challenge was a brick and mortar location in Emeryville, the city they’ve called home for over five years.
We caught up with Masa to talk to him about his success, and his newly opened Mayo & Mustard location at Public Market Emeryville.
