French Toast Mafia was formed in May 2016. Consisting of Carlos "Cpt Anarchy" Morales, Nathan "Squalleye" Kostal, Nick "Vtec" and Abel "Rammyy" Garcia, the team first competed in the Summer 2016 HCS Pro League Open Qualifiers. They were ultimately unable to qualify for the Pro League, finishing top 6 in the Last Chance Qualifier.
Fielding a new roster of Gabriel "Gabriel" Funes-Soto, Scottie "Cloud" Holste, Douglas "Musa" Musa and Rammyy, French Toast Mafia emerged in the Open Circuit as a top team. After three weeks in the circuit, French Toast Mafia made a roster change, releasing Musa and replacing him with Michael "Falcated" Garcia. After more success in the season, French Toast Mafia were signed by Denial eSports and went on to qualify for Relegation with the organization.
A year after its original formation, French Toast Mafia was revived by Rammyy in May 2017, with the roster rounded out by Nicolas "King Nick" Panzella, Joseph "SickStory" Ebbs and Donald "Claim" Valdez. Despite a strong first week in the Open Circuit, King Nick was dropped from the team and was replaced by Gabriel "Gabriel" Funes-Soto.
