From our founder:


I suck at tailgating. Which sucks because I love tailgating. I love hanging with my boys, the 30 year old jokes and stories I've said and heard 40 times. The laughter is deep, the feeling is one of a kind and the memories are long lasting. Tailgating to me is an emotion, not just something you do. 


My problem always was, I was never good at it. I am great at attending tailgates, but am not good at hosting or planning them. I never had the time/desire to go grocery shopping days before, or look for a recipe to marinade the meats. It’s not that I don’t know what makes a good tailgate, it’s just that i didn't have the time or interest in doing the work to make it great.  


After feeling sorry for my lack of tailgate prowess following a game a few years ago, it dawned on me that I had access to something very few other people had, a client list full of Celebrity chefs. So I asked Marc Forgione, my client and an Iron Chef, to make me a spread of food for my next tailgate. It was at that moment, WeGate was born. Wegate would become a Tailgate in a Box experience, delivering a turnkey solution for an incredible spread of food for a tailgate or homegate. We would remove the hassle and lend our chefs culinary prowess, so others can focus on their friends and family. Our goal is to provide a product which elevates your tailgates, gives you back time and leaves your family, friends, neighbors and whoever the hell else is walking by with something they wont soon forget.  


I wish it was a better story, but I think I left those all in the parking lot. I hope WeGate brings you as much joy as it does me. WeGate, its a Tailgate thing..
