Mario Ortiz

owner & chef

I am a native Mexican who has 17+ years of experience in the food service industry. After years of working in various kitchens as a chef, kitchen supervisor, and manager, I decided it was time to venture out. In 2013 my wife and I founded Mario’s Cart, LLC and began working on our dream.
