Chapter 2: The Honeymoon Phase
College is attended as the paths stray but never fully diverge as Boulder serves as a convenient “home base” for the two to remain in close contact. Years pass as skills are developed, lessons are learned and dreams are dreamt.
Chapter 3: Interracial Business Partners
With a jar of saved pennies a food cart is purchased and enters the restoration and preparation stage. The world waits with baited breath for the cart to hit the streets
Chapter 4: The Invisible Enemy Attacks!
Covid-19 finds its way to our shores. While knee deep in the application process, our two protagonists find themselves delayed with opening. Eventually we defeat the bureaucracy, but at a later date and with lower numbers. Events grind to a halt, but we stay optimistic with brewery visits and park side locations
Chapter 5: Pearl Street Moves
A “permanent” location is established on the historic Pearl Street walking Mall, between Broadway and 13th. Our protagonists find themselves busy between pearl, private events, and lightening covid restrictions. New team members are recruited.

The first expansion beyond Boulder is initiated. Located at the Town Center at Aurora, we decide to focus on deliveries and pickups in a new emerging market – while also maintaining the cart business for breweries, pearl and events. The Kingcomo’s Aurora location serves as the first outpost for further expansion to develop
Benjamin “Burger” King
I just want people to see and love the different varieties in life. Our Quesadillas do just that. Using a patented mex-fusion technology we were able to create an astonishing blend of flavors from around the world between a crisp tortilla.

Michael “Miguel” Bencomo
For me food has been what always brings people together. That’s what I want our quesadillas to do, to bring people together (obviously not now cause Corona and all, ya know) but in the future. People of all tastes and varieties. Celebration with delicious food is what we’re all about. As the Black Eyed Peas once said, “Burn it till it’s burned out, Turn it till it’s turned out, Act up from north, west, east, south”
