This Summer is going to be a big one for Food Trucks. Good weather plus amazing food, equals happy Los Angelinos… We’re continuing to look for new locations, lots and events for the trucks to be a part of.
Our Century Lot is doing great. We’ll have six or seven trucks there every Tuesday. The Gateway to LA Business Improvement District makes this more of an event by setting up tables and chairs and having a band play. If you haven’t been there yet, you’re missing out!
The SoCalMFVA is working with the organizers of the Silver Laker Jubilee (May 22 & 23) to provide 40 trucks per day for their event. This will be the largest collection of trucks (check the month of May for all the trucks attending) ever assembled for a festival.
Councilmember Koretz sent two staffers to the Century Lot on Tuesday. We talked about food trucks, lots and the now infamous quote. They didn’t think that our email campaign was justified considering that it was an off the cuff remark and not a “press release.” Despite some disagreements, they do seem willing to hear us out and take a closer look at all the benefits Food Trucks have to offer. I’ll keep you updated.
We’ve got a state election coming up, and I’ve asked some of the candidates running for seats in the Los Angeles area their views on Food Trucks… So far, no response.
