Phillip “Flip” Isard is a Phoenix native who was raised to be a purveyor of amazing local food. When he was just 12 years old, Flip attended his first cooking class taught by local Chef Justin Beckett. It was that class that secured Flip’s love of food and cooking and inspired him to expand his knowledge of the food and restaurant industry. Over the years, Flip worked in a number of kitchens and restaurants in both back of house and front of house positions. At age 18, Flip was offered the opportunity of a lifetime to work in the music industry and tour with some of the top rock and metal bands in the world. As a food enthusiast, this provided Flip with the opportunity to explore the different culinary scenes around the globe. After traveling the world for almost ten years, and seeing how the street food culture in other cities and countries was a respected industry, he knew that opening a food truck in his hometown of Phoenix was the perfect plan. He started serving at The Gladly upon his return, and his experience from traveling the world, combined with the amazing mentoring of owners Bernie and Andrew, Braden and Flip developed the Frites Street business model and were ready to launch their company.
Flip’s love of food and alluring personality comes together in a perfect hybrid as the front man of Frites Street!
