Ding dong The Wicked ’Wich has landed in Sacramento! Owners Tom Boerner, Chuck Hewitt and Chris Jarosz are finally ready to hit the streets with their brand new Wicked Wich food mobile. “We are not health food – we are mental health food,” said Jarosz.
Each wicked sandwich, which includes a customer’s choice of meat, cheese, mild and spicy “potions” (condiments) and locally sourced produce, will be topped with crisp French fries and a heap of non-mayonnaise-based, house-made coleslaw that Jarosz described as “tangy, yet sweet.”
The sandwiches are inspired by a popular East Coast restaurant that Jarosz frequented in his youth. Though he is keeping mum on the name of the restaurant, Jarosz said he has a hunch customers will catch on to the culinary reference.
Customers can choose between both American and imported meats and cheeses. The menu is still being firmed up, but Jarosz recommends the Hot Italian sausage from locally owned Orangevale Meat Shoppe and the Spice Capicola from Italy with provolone cheese.
The final product will be “stacked very high” and housed within two slices of homemade white bread cut from loaves made specially for Wicked ’Wich by Grateful Bread on Fair Oaks Boulevard, Jarosz said.
Jarosz described Wicked ’Wich’s fare as “a blue collar, working man’s sandwich,” with prices between $7 and $8.
In addition to making themselves available in downtown, Jarosz said Wicked ’Wich plans to expand its reach and make stops in Elk Grove, El Dorado Hills, Roseville and Granite Bay. “Food trucks allow you to bring your passion to people, rather than trying to get them to come to you,” he said. Jarosz said Wicked ’Wich aims to work with other trucks in the area to generate more business for everyone and create what he described as a “mini food court” in downtown.
