The Three Empanadas

Through the love of cooking and authentic family recipes, Pat Fettig, Brett and Dadnitri Johnson will started an empanada food truck in the Greater Cincinnati area in the spring of 2014. When Dadnitri moved to Cincinnati from Caracas, Venezuela, in June of 2012 and married Brett, a lot had changed for her. Because she missed home so much, Pat and Brett decided to start a food truck that would bring a taste of Dadni’s home to Cincinnati. With Pat’s marketing and market research background, Brett’s experience in the food and hospitality industry, and Dadni's recipes, the food truck was the perfect idea.

Empanadas are a traditional Hispanic dish that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or as a snack. They are Latin American turnovers that can be fried or baked and are filled with different combinations of meats, cheeses, and vegetables. This idea turned big once Empanadas Aqui, LLC realized how many Hispanics in the Greater Cincinnati area missed their home as well, and want their food traditions brought here to them. And with this food truck everyone has the chance to know how delicious empanadas can be.
