Durham Food Truck Rodeo – Sunday June 27th from 4-7pm!

DSC02457

A second Durham Food Truck Rodeo is scheduled to take place today Sunday, 6/27 at Durham Central Park, 4-7 p.m.  You can sample some of the amazing traveling food in the Bull City! All in one spot!

This was a huge hit when they had a simialr event at Sam’s Quick Shop earlier this month. Don’t confuse these with the old “Grease Trucks” that usually come to mind when most peopel think of mobile food vendors. Most of the owners of these mobile businesses have extensive experience in the culinary arts and are highly regarded for the food they serve.  I’m hoping I can sneak over there for a bit to eat later today! You can read more about some of the mobile vendors in a recent Independent Weekly article. (Link)

See you at the Rodeo!

    Hi, I am in the process of starting my own mobile food unit. Do you know who all attended this rodeo?

    • David R

      Im also looking into the Food Truck Business model. Where does one start? License Requirments Etc. Thanks David

      • David,

        I think the best place to start is by contacting your city’s local health department since they regulate the food business and provide the required inspections. I’m guessing they can point you to the other city agencies you need to contact about business licenses ect… Good Luck!

  2. Laurie –

    Thanks for checking out my blog. Here is a link to a news and observer article about the the food truck “roundup” which has been held a few times now over the past few weeks in Durham. It contains a list of the different vendors who attended. I’ve gone ahead and pasted the list of food trucks that participated below too. Thanks for the comment!
