Rotating Food Trucks to Return to the Porch at 30th Street
One of the more contentious events of last spring was the debut of the Porch 2.0 at 30th Street Station without its lineup of rotating food trucks. The food trucks were a big part of making the University City District’s placemaking experiment a success in 2014. But last year the improvement district decided to give exclusive vending rights to Michael Schulson who set up a rotisserie food and beer truck at the space. But now, as Danya Heninger reports, the rotating cast of food trucks will return.
Look for a breakfast truck and two lunch trucks on weekdays with the possibility of a dinner truck as well. Look for more details to (ahem) roll out in the next few weeks.
As for how the food truck community views the return of food trucks to 30th Street and the Porch, vocal opponent of the 2015 plan, Spot Burger’s Josh Kim called it, a “big win for the little guys.”
