Food truck program boosts Boston food service jobs
Posted on March 20, 2014
A late-night food truck pilot program is sure to help increase Boston food service jobs.
Starting in April, Copley Square, Boston University, and Northeastern University residents will have new late-night dining options: food trucks.
Pending the success of this program, including feedback from Food Truck owners and customers, as well as other involved City agencies, the Mobile Food Truck Committee will consider expanding this pilot to other appropriate sites throughout Boston.
The city’s Mobile Food Truck Committee, along with input from the Boston Police Department, selected the three food truck sites based on area foot traffic and public safety.
Trucks vending at these sites will keep their “doors” open for an extra hour, until midnight, on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
As of April 1, the trucks participating in the late-night pilot are:
BBQ Lamb Brothers
Chicken and Rice Guys
Mediterranean Home Cooking**
The Bacon Truck**
** Trucks that are vending on the public way for the first time.
“Food truck owners and customers have been asking for later hours for foodtrucks, and we’ve been listening,” Mayor Walsh said. “We’ll be looking at this pilot to see if it’s something we can expand to more sites.”
