Owners Dan and Chelsea Katz are denizens of the Jenkintown food scene. West Avenue Grille has been serving the Jenkintown area for over 20 years, and WAGon Wheels Food Truck has been up and running since mid-2021.

“We’ve been working very hard the last couple of months to get this up and running,” Dan said. “We have a wonderful staff, and we’re excited for the community. We know how excited they’ve been. We’re so happy that the day is finally here.”

“We’re really excited and we’re ready to go. We’ll have live music throughout the weekend,” Dan said.
