About Riley: Hey! My name is Riley Pruemer and I am the CEO of The Vagabond Eatery. I graduated from Dieterich High School in 2015 and then attended Lake Land College for 2 years where I studied Business Administration. From then I went to the University of Illinois for 2 years and earned a degree in Marketing. With knowing I didn’t want to enter the corporate world, I began my first business in June of 2015 which is RPmedia. This is a wedding & lifestyle filmmaking company. I had always had a passion for creating & capturing moments through video, so this business venture was very organic for me. In July of 2020 I started my second business which is The Vagabond Eatery. My life dream was to start a brick & mortar coffee shop, but when I saw this camper posted for sale, I quickly shifted gears and went the mobile route. The first official launch date for The Vagabond Eatery was on October 12, 2020 and since then it has been very successful and we are looking forward to this next year!
