In 2009, Natasha Case had a vision. As an architecture student, she had the idea of intersecting food and architecture for one of her thesis projects. After meeting Freya Estreller, the two purchased a beat-up postal van on Craigslist and set out to the Coachella Music Festival with a truck full of handmade cookies and gourmet ice cream. Five years later, Coolhaus has gone from one food truck to being sold in more than 2,000 locations across the country, with a fleet of 10 trucks in 4 cities, a cart in Central Park, New Yorkm and 2 brick-and-mortar stores.
To celebrate five years of success, Coolhaus will host a party at The Unique Space in Downtown Los Angeles from 8:00 p.m. to midnight on May 2. The party, sponsored in part by Dwell magazine, Eater, and How About We, will feature live music by local breakout band De Lux and Paul Tao of IAMSOUND records, an open bar with craft cocktails and beer floats, local food fare, and Coolhaus ice cream and ice cream sandwiches. A percentage of ticket sales will be donated to 9 Dots, an afterschool program for underserved students that co-founder Freya Estreller volunteers at weekly.
"It has been an amazing journey the last few years and we are just getting started. We wanted to produce a fun night where our friends and fans could help celebrate with us and raise money for a good cause at the same time." says Natasha Case.
