How giant Whole Foods is helping incubate startup restaurants and food manufacturers

The Orange Crunch food truck got a big boost for its new business in 2014, when it partnered with a then-new Whole Foods store in Westminster’s Bradburn Village neighborhood.

“It absolutely helped us catapult our catering services,” said Leshner Del Rosario, who owns the Filipino-themed food truck with his wife, Sarah. “People were calling us and Whole Foods, sending us messages through our Facebook page or e-mails asking if we were still there months and months down the road after our short stint.”
