Billy Metzger, Owner/Operator
I grew up in Mechanicsville VA and went to Lee Davis High School. I began working at 16 at Chucks Supermarket, right across from Lee Davis High School, which now it's the Tractor Supply Store. I went from there to Sam's Club, where I worked 7 years, 5 of those years in the meat department learning to be an apprentice butcher then moved to meat manager. I took my skills to Ukrop's in their meat department, until I decided to start this business.
About Cool Concessions
Cool Concessions is an American owned and operated company. We were humbly started in 1999. After 35 years in the retail business we were tired of long hours and having to answer to someone else for everything we did.
Billy started with a small ice cream truck in Mechanicsville VA as an on the side gig of his full time job as a meat manager at Ukrop's. The ice cream business became successful, he left his position at Ukrop's to pursued it full time.
Donald left Lance, Inc to partner up with Billy to start up Cool Concessions Catering which includes street festivals, corporate and private catering.
In 2012 Billy and Donald decided to build a food truck for mobile food vendor. 

Someone once told us to find one thing and do it well. HA!! We didn't listen. With the help of our 
families, some great friends, and a man named Berkley King, we have come to what our motto is today:

"If we can't do don't need it!"
Don Pike, Billy's helper

I was born in Wilson, NC and moved to VA in 1956. I worked for Lance, Inc for 25 years in sales and promotions. While working at Lance I also opened Don Pikes BBQ in Mechanicsville, VA I also started a BBQ catering business along with the restaurant. After about 5 years I got out of that business and my wife, Tricia Pike, and I bought Lee Davis Texaco in Mechanicsville. In 1999 I retired from Lance. Billy and I started Cool Concessions. In 2012 we built a Food Truck and the rest is history!
