Wenatchee Needs A Food Truck Gathering Spot!
Fast food restaurants have been doing it forever, tending to locate along one stretch of a busy street. The north end of Mission Street before it merges with Miller Street was once referred to as a fast food row.
It still is to some degree with McDonald's, Chipotle, KFC and Subway within a few hundred yards distance. Sub Shop used to be located there as well.
The idea being the location, location, location and you want to be where fast food diners are. Well, why not food trucks? It works so well in Portland, Oregon's legendary food-cart scene, they are clustered in permanent locations called pods. There are at least five of them
It's akin to a food court in a mall but with incredibly well done cuisine!
Wouldn't it be great if all the food trucks operating in the Wenatchee area congregated in one spot on some regular basis? Like every Saturday through the summer time. Perhaps in the Town Toyota Center parking lot, across from busy Walla Walla Point Park or in the vast K-Mart Plaza parking lot in Olds Station near the Odabashian Bridge and nearby Confluence State Park.
These are just a few suggestions and you may have even better ideas. Imagine pulling up and enjoying your a choice of wonderfully prepared food from a variety of food truck vendors all in one spot.

In the words of Shoeless Joe Jackson from Field of Dreams ......"If you build it, they will come" and we could use more food trucks in Wenatchee. So, how about establishing a food truck place where they can all draw a crowd of hungry people once a week and everyone in your group can have some great selections to choose from in one convenient location!
