Minority Business Highlight: Tastys by Tasha

Natasha Bledsoe launched her food trailer Tastys by Tasha in 2023 as a way for her to make her dreams of owning her own business a reality and to give back to the community. 

Bledsoe knew she always wanted to do something that would bring people together and give back where she could, and in college she decided that career path would be cooking. Although Bledsoe was unable to finish her culinary degree and currently works at an office, she said she never gave up on her dream of owning a food truck.

Eventually, she said she got tired of waiting and working different cooking jobs around the city and took out a loan in 2023 to get her own food trailer. Not long after, Tastys by Tasha was born.

The food trailer is open on the weekends and whenever Bledsoe can dedicate time to it, although she expressed a desire to go full time with the business as soon as possible.

Bledsoe’s food offerings and menu items include a variety of fusion foods, from Mexican to Asian and Jerk style dishes. Tastys by Tasha serves ramen bowls, burritos and empanadas and always has unique specialty dishes on rotation. 

In addition to vending at festivals, Tastys by Tasha offers catering for private parties, weddings, birthdays and other events.

Tastys by Tasha food trailer can be found on weekends at different locations around the city — such as The Marilyn Rose Center and The Snug Bar — and at festivals and events such as Melanin in May.
