What's A Food Park?


Moments ago, the Fort Worth Food Park, that haven for food-truck foodies, announced on its Facebook page that it will open Dec. 2. The park will be at 2509 Weisenberger St., a couple of blocks south of White Settlement Road and just north of the Seventh Street Target.
Charter trucks include Good Karma Kitchen, YES! Taco, Nammi Truck, Lee's Grilled Cheese, cupcake-mobile Red Jett Sweets,and a Jake's Hamburgers truck.
Rest of article here. And I still don't understand the concept.

Either my company is getting more picky with what we look at on the web, or the WC messanger has some wording today that our blocking software does not like. It shows blocked access today.. Probably nothing happening is Wise anyway....

It is just a park that will be lined with food trucks of all different cuisine. They are becoming more popular in metro areas. Just returned from Portland where they had a food park like this. It was cool because I could sample food from each that I was interested in.

Sorry but I don't care how good the food might be, but if I going to take the family out for dinner it will not be from a truck, or as I always heard them called The Roach Coach

It's basically a parking lot dedicated to food trucks to park at. It has tables to sit and eat at, electricity for the trucks to hook up to, etc.

We have them here in Austin, It's like a food court at a mall, but the "restaurants" are in converted airstreams or trucks. Allows a "restaurant" without all of the traditional overhead costs...there are some here with some great food...

There's a missing word in there that would help. It's a food TRUCK park, basically a place for for mobile vendors to set up permanently.

There you go, ending a sentence with a preposition.

It is a centralized location for all of the roaches to hang out. This makes it safer so there are not food trucks distributing roaches all over the city.

Picture this BG

Trucks with food on them aka "Mobile Restaurants" without seating.

Got it?

I don't get the "park" description. Have you done a street view of the new "Food Park"?

Location, location, location...

These ain't roach coaches like you'll find selling to illegals at construction sites.

In fact, food trucks are often run by excellent chefs who don't have the stroke (name, money, location, etc.) to pull off a full size restaurant.

In Austin they're trailers, not trucks. And the best "transition from truck to brick and mortar" is a BBQ place in Austin called Franklins. The line to get in on the weekends is two hours long, and worth every minute. Plus, they sell beer in the line.

Go to some food trucks. They're great.

What's not to understand?

I work with mainly troubled businesses, many of them restaurants. Fixed asset underutilization is a frequent culprit, wtih one of the biggest cash drains being [usually] inflated rent.

This seems like a reasonably innovative approach to get an interesting (eclectic?) mix of food styles while giving the individual operators the flexibility to go elsewhere if it's not working for them.

I hope the concept is successful.

Food Pork? What's all this excitement about Food Pork? Pork has always been a tasty food. I will grant you, having a whole area dedicated just to Food Pork is a bit odd. I suppose the Food Beef and Food Lamb people could raise a stink.

Wait, you said Food Park, not Food Pork? Never mind.

It's the same concept with different food.
