The Hungry Nerd | Fun food made by nerds, for nerds.
Hello! My name is Shay. I am the founder and owner of The Hungry Nerd!
Here are some things that you should know about me. I’m 25 years old, originally form Washington, DC and currently living in Houston, TX. Also, I’m a nerd! A huge one! I love video games, comics, anime, movies (Disney, MCU, DC, etc.) and FOOD! So I decided to combine all of my passions into one. This is why I have started The Hungry Nerd.
The Hungry Nerd is a food truck that offers your favorite foods that have been inspired by your favorite characters. We serve all those great foods you can only get at carnivals and more! All with a nerdy twist to them!
This is food by geeks and nerds for nerds and geeks. Our mission is to serve the punniest and nerdiest food that we possible can and your contribution could help put a smile on a hungry nerds face that lays eyes and tastebuds on one of our awesome tasty menu items.

MORE ABOUT US:
This all started as an idea to create more happiness in our community in the best way possible. By combining two things we hold dear to our hearts, food and nerdom! A lot of hard work and dedication has been put into this project and we are determined to see it succeed. We come from various backgrounds ranging from IT, culinary, and even business. All of this helps in everyday business needs for our food truck.
RISKS AND CHALLENGES:
With any knew business there are always risks. The best thing you can possibly do is be prepared. This is exactly what we have done. We have prepared safety nets for those first few months of business while we wait for customers. We have also secured a maintenance team for all of our equipment for our food truck/trailer. We are challenge seekers and conquerors. And we will never back down. Just level up!
