A free service, Stitches ‘n Dishes is California’s only network of vendors, venues and their fans, providing news, schedules, reviews, high-quality photography, video and media coverage on its website.

The launch of Stitches ‘n Dishes ( was driven by the creative vision of founders Christopher Ford and Andrew Nicora after observing an absence of a single source that provides a platform where people can discover new mobile food dining options, reviews and high-quality food photography.

The website is fully dedicated to the mobile foods industry, focusing on food trucks, food stands, caterers, and bakers. Stitches ‘n Dishes provides original articles, reviews and photography on its blog site, Facebook fan page, Twitter feed and in its weekly newsletter, “The Dish!”, and it is adding video and a magazine to its growing distribution. The website also includes information about California county fair dates and events at each of 78 venues, with photos, schedules and Twitter feeds, as well.

“Stitches ‘n Dishes is creating a buzz around mobile foods and entertainment venues that gives people the opportunity to find events at any of the California fair grounds and their favorite food vendors on one website. And now they’re giving away an i-Pod touch to make it even easier.”

said Nick Nicora, Vice President of Business Development, Western Region at Ovations Food Services, a national food and beverages service, providing alcohol, catering and concessions at California county fair grounds and entertainment venues across the country.

Entries for the iPod Touch Fourth Generation handheld device are being accepted through October 31, 2011. To be eligible for entry, participants must be at least 18 years of age. “We’re giving away a free iPod Touch as a way of saying ‘thank you’ to our loyal readers, and to spread the word about what we’re doing. Our website appeals to food lovers and anyone curious about the mobile food phenomenon. If you’re curious about food trucks, and their growing popularity, you’ll love our site,” said Christopher Ford, co-founder of Stitches ‘n Dishes.

To enter the drawing for the iPod Touch Fourth Generation handheld device, participants must subscribe to Ford’s weekly newsletter, “The Dish!” which delivers the site’s top three articles as well as unique content not seen on the site, as well as special offers and discounts for newsletter subscribers only. “We consider our email subscribers our VIP guests, and we treat them well,” said Ford. He and co-founder, Andrew Nicora plan to offer prizes, contests and giveaways each month to their fans in a section on the website appropriately named, “Stitch’s Treats”.

Participants must also “like” the Stitches ‘n Dishes Facebook fan page, and write at least one comment on an article on the website in order to complete their entries in the drawing. “We want to be sure that we’re giving this prize to someone who appreciates the content that we’re providing. Asking participants to make a comment on an article shows us that they have an appreciation and interest in mobile foods,” said Nicora.

On October 1, 2011, Ford and Nicora announced the “Share it to Win it” drawing to win an i-Pod Touch fourth generation media device. “We understand that our readers have embraced today’s mobile technology and that it plays an integral part in how they make decisions regarding their mobile dining experience, and they share those decisions with their friends and families” said co-founder, Andrew Nicora.
