Born in New York City, and having spent several years of his adult life living and working in Chicago, Jim Angelus settled in San Francisco in 2000. Jim returned to his restaurant roots in 2003. After managing a couple local restaurants, Jim decided to open his own business, a decision based on starting a family and getting away from the long restaurant hours. Bacon Bacon was born in July 2010. It is now a popular bay area food truck and sandwich shop, open seven days a week for breakfast and lunch.

Jim brings his 25 plus years of restaurant experience to Bacon Bacon, making it a place where foodies and bacon lovers generally can find mouthwatering meals in a friendly atmosphere. Even though Jim spent a couple years of fine dining under Todd English, has bartended and managed popular sports bars in Chicago and oversaw large scale operations in downtown San Francisco, Jim feels most comfortable standing in front of his Bacon Bacon Food Truck asking my customers if “they would like fries with that.”

Bacon Bacon has appeared on Food Network, CNN and Discovery Network. Most important to Jim, he has a successful business that allows him participate in the industry he is most passionate about and be home in time to put dinner on his family’s table.
