MONROE COUNTY, PA – A Kunkletown man faces charges for running a fake food-cart-customization business online, the Monroe County District Attorney announced in a statement Tuesday. Robert William Scifo Jr., 34, allegedly defrauded buyers of $28,026.76 between Oct. 30, 2016, and July 15, 2017.

Scifo runs a business called Crown Food Carts, which claims to manufacture custom food trailers, food cart accessories and concession equipment. The company website says it is headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware, with a production facility in Pennsylvania.

An affidavit of probable cause details six separate instances where Crown Food Carts failed to deliver or supplied an inferior product. Customers were from Pennsylvania, New York, California and Texas. No refunds were issued for any of those transactions.

A business called Any Occasion Party Rental signed a sales agreement Jan. 1 with Crown Food Carts, according to the affidavit. The sale included four rechargeable electric Italian ice pushcarts and one classic hot dog cart.
