It all started with one stand at a local open-air farmer’s market, back in July of 1999.

From then on this family business has flourished into a lucrative fundraising company serving delicious fun food and helping thousands raise funds for their organizations. We are a mobile food company that participates in cheer competitions, car shows, football games, and farmers markets just to name a few. We have operated our restaurant at Raging Waters theme park in San Dimas, for 10 seasons from 2002 to 2012. Throughout the years Tropical Islands has become well known and continues to expand.
