on a mission to create the best party food ever
Big Mozz is on a mission to create the best party food ever, served at the most exciting events across the country. From our humble roots at Brooklyn’s Smorgasburg, you can find our handmade Mozz Sticks and Vendy Award-winning menu at music festivals like Celebrate Brooklyn! & Governor’s Ball, and major venues like Yankee Stadium, Madison Square Garden, Citi Field, and more. Book us for your next party, and join us for a virtual mozzarella making class!
So, why Mozzarella?
Americans eat a lot of cheese, and more than half of it is mozzarella. Big Mozz started as a way to teach our customers where their food comes from, how great mozzarella is made and sourced sustainably, and how to use it creatively. We love fresh mozzarella because of its versatility, we love cheese pulls, and we love hanging out at local dairy farms and meeting the cows.
We make each order of our signature Mozz Sticks with ½ pound of great whole-milk mozzarella, and honest, fresh ingredients, and we have served millions of orders since opening in 2015. Whether you know us from having an order of Mozz Sticks at Yankee Stadium, or taking one of our virtual Mozzarella Making Classes you can count on us to serve up the freshest, locally-sourced mozzarella the Big Mozz way.
The Face Behind the MOzz
As a college athlete with an English degree, the last thing Matt Gallira expected to do was start his own business. It didn’t take him long to realize, however, that food was his passion. His North Jersey, Italian-American roots led the startup of Atlantic Ave Co., a specialty foods business that bottled and sold specialty sauces, coffees, and more to retailers around the country.
In 2014, as he was serving Atlantic Ave Co. sauces in a fancy grocery store, Matt watched a chef make fresh mozzarella and became instantly hooked. He went to the place he thought made the best fresh mozzarella (A&S Pork Store in Little Falls, NJ, of course) and offered to work for free to learn all there is to know about fresh mozz. In 2015, Big Mozz was born and took off like a rocket, landing a spot at New York’s famous Smorgasburg food festival. Big Mozz sets audacious goals and grew quickly, and our focus has always been on hospitality and serving the best food we can at the best venues around the country.
