Mac Mart is Philllyís first and only Mac and Cheesery. It started in 2013 with a food truck. Founder and owner, Marti Lieberman, did not always plan on opening up her own restaurant. She went to school for public relations and immediately got into a job that she had high hopes for. After a while she didnít think she was reaching her full potential, so she wanted a change. Her friends and coworkers raved about her homemade mac and cheese and told her she should open up a food truck. A mac and cheese food truck was something that had never been done in the area so Marti knew she would have a great market for it. She didnít want to make food that was fancy or pretentious, so Mac Mart serves casual comfort food using high quality ingredients. Customers loved the concept and she had lines so long outside the truck that she would often run out of product. She decided she needed a place where people could always find her; that is how the Mac Mart on 18th street came about. She is hoping to expand the business further in the near future. Marti brought her sister and boyfriend into the business and they helped to perfect the menu. Her sister makes her own homemade ranch dip, jalapeno oil, and helped make the perfect panko crumbs and pesto. When you walk into Mac Mart you can expect style of serving similar to a Chipotle or Subway. There is a permanent menu of classic creations for you to choose from or you can build your own Mac and Cheese. They have your choice of proteins, like their Cleaverís ribeye, variety of types of chicken, and crispy bacon. They also have fresh cheeses and veggies. Top it off with their sauce, which is what completes the flavor profile. They have everything from spinach and artichoke dip to buffalo sauce. Mac Martís social media presence has helped expand their brand. People from all over come to try it. Marti once had a customer who was visiting New York from Brazil, and came all the way to Philly to stop by her truck. A lot of Mac Mart’s business comes from catering and special events. They pride themselves on always providing a great experience. They are open Monday-Saturday from 11-9. Check out their Facebook and Instagram for more information. Come to Mac Mart for the mac and cheese of your dreams!
