About Us

Family Business

 The most important thing to us is Family.  One of the perks about owning the food truck is being able to choose our schedule. This has allowed us to be there for sports practice and games, Holidays, and Birthdays. More importantly it is a business every member of the family can help with. We all literally built the bones of the business together and from time to time we are joined by our kids mothers and close friends to help with service.  When you eat at The Happy Snapper you also become Family!

Recognized by the City of St. Pete

After only being open for 3 months we were fortunate to be recognized by the city of St. Pete and chosen to be featured for Spanish heritage months new upcoming business!  We are proud to be St. Pete locals and live in such a beautiful and welcoming place. 






Our Daughter Penelope wanted to give back to the community by helping those in need. She had a wonderful ideal to offer lemonade in exchange for donations.  All proceeds from lemonade will be donated to a local homeless shelter.                                                                        


Although Penelope may not always be available with her lemonade, We will always accept donations for the cause.

When it comes to seafood there is no one I trust more than a local Fishing Capt. Lucky for all our customers we have one on The Happy Snapper Food Truck!  Capt. Rafael is the owner of Spanish sardine fishing charter right here in St. Pete. His boat is actually the happy Snapper. Although he is not a commercial fisherman he knows the best places to buy fresh.  He has often had his customers come to the food truck after a charter for a hook and cook. If you catch your own fish and bring it to us we can cook it for you too!
