Hundreds of fans flocked from all over Boston to get lunch served to them from family members Alma, Donnie, Bob and Chef Paul

Wahlberg family members Alma, Donnie, Bob and Chef Paul, along with Wahlburgers CEO, Rick Vanzura, unveiled the all-new Wahlburgers food truck yesterday in Dorchester’s South Bay Center in conjunction with National Get To Know Your Customer Day.

Fans of the restaurant and hit A&E program were invited to come down to be among the first to be served from the brand-new Boston-based Wahlburgers food truck., and despite the less-than-desirable weather conditions, close to 500 fans of the restaurant and show came out to welcome the family back to Dorchester.

“We are just so happy to be home,” said Chef Paul Wahlberg.  “We’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to come back to Dorchester and we’ve found it here at the South Bay Center.”

After the ceremonial green ribbon was cut by Alma to signify the opening of the food truck, the family handed out food to those in line.  They also spent time taking photos with fans, signing autographs, and feeding the hungry construction workers that are building the new Wahlburgers Dorchester restaurant and making South Bay Center come to life.  Mark Wahlberg even found the time to FaceTime into the event, saying hello to all who gathered and wished his family good luck with the launch.
