Matt Whitley and Tyler Helikson met while attending college, but drifted apart after graduation. However, a series of chance meetings helped them rekindle their friendship. They found they’d developed similar values over the years, in particular a fondness for healthy foods and sustainability. Both were committed to being conscientious consumers who worked to reduce their carbon footprint. Both felt a happy body was a happy mind. They decided to turn their passions into their profession with Happy+Hale. Now, you’ll see this eco-friendly food cart popping up around the Raleigh-Durham, NC area whipping up nutritious eats for the masses.
Matt and Tyler believe food is a tangible way to achieve happiness. A healthy diet can boost your energy and increase your overall mood, after all. The eats whipped up here are good for you without skimping on the taste. You won’t feel deprived chowing down on the fare, which is made from scratch on the daily.
