I’ve gotten several interesting e-mails in the last week implying that Tucson is inching ever closer to having a food truck festival of its very own.
The first speaks of a couple that owns property near downtown. They want to develop it to facilitate food trucks, and from the sounds of things they mean business. They’ve already approached a number of official city folks about making it happen, and say the property is zoned properly and that they’ve already started prepping the site.
The second was from a local shopping center that is planning a food truck festival for sometime in February. They haven't put out the official announcement yet — they’re still hammering out details and are looking into making it a fundraiser — but more information should be available soon.
There’s also word that several new food trucks are in the works, including a kabob truck.
Tucson may not be super-food-truck-savvy like some cities, but we’re getting there. We'll let you know the moment one of these plans becomes a reality.
