Ingredients to be successful!

Stephanie Ruggiro – owner of STUFT, use to work for an advertising firm a year ago, so the 25-year-old figured the food truck industry had more to offer than the corporate world.

So she found an old FedEx truck and turned it into STUFT, which sells gourmet stuffed potatoes.

About Client & Project

Client Bio

Stephanie Ruggiro, the owner of STUFT, is a college Graduate from The University of North Carolina Wilmington. After following her dreams of moving to New York to pursue a job in Advertising, she realized after just a year of being there that a 9-5 desk job wasn’t for her.

After moving back to North Carolina, she started doing research on food trucks in the Raleigh/Durham area,. Baked potatoes however weren’t just a random idea she thought of. When Stephanie’s parents were first married, they had a baked potato business of their own in a Flea Market in New York.

With the help of her parents, Stephanie was able to purchase a truck and have it outfitted to exactly what she needed. STUFT had their official grand opening at the Brewgaloo event in Raleigh on April 26, 2014.

Client Review

I had my truck built by George and his team in 2013-2014. I couldn’t have asked for a better team to build my truck. From start to finish they were helpful through everything. They custom built some equipment for me that catered to my needs. After the truck was finished, any questions I had were immediately answered. I would recommend anyone I know to their company. They did an awesome job!!!
