Over the past couple years, at least one segment of the food industry seems to be burgeoning not despite the recession, but because of it: food trucks. Given the tight credit market over the past few years, it takes more up-front capital to start new businesses. This makes the food truck market easier to enter than the traditional bricks and mortar restaurant business. The Dayton region has over 30 trucks in operation, with many more are on the way.
Synergy Incubators, a start up non-profit that collaborates to remove obstacles to success and to educate our next generation about nutrition, sustainability and community, has been working with local food trucks. Tonight at 200 S. Jefferson Street, during Urban Nights, they will host their 5th food truck rally, partnering with the Foodbank to host Food Truck Bingo! Attendees will have the chance to fill their bingo card by visiting the food trucks, as well as the Decoy – art boutique – studio sponsored children’s activities area & the Synergy Makers Market featuring 15 local Artisans as well!
The following Food Trucks will be serving up Street Food from 5-9pm tonight:
Bella Sorella Brick Oven Pizza
Cheeky Meat Pies
East Coast Eats
Harvest Mobile Cuisine
Missourui Avenue BBQ
Ringo’s North Star Mobile Eatery
