In many cities, mobile food trucks are a common sight,
and they're becoming more visible in downtown Toledo.
Levis Square at St. Clair and Madison is becoming ‘food
truck central,' as three mobile operations were set up for lunch business on
Phil Barone says his Rosie's Rolling Chef operation aims
to change the way people view food trucks.
"Food trucks have had a bad name through the years. This
is a gourmet food truck," Barone said.
His plan is to be open for lunch on Tuesdays and
Thursdays at Levis Square, and already others are setting up there, including
"I think it's great. It's good for Toledo and we're
Chick-fil-A fanatics," said Jeannine Netz.
Scott Hodges, owner of the Bueno Vida mobile taco truck,
is also planning to be there on a regular basis.
"I think it's a great location as far as the number of
employees that come for lunch," he said.
Bill Thomas with the Downtown Toledo Development
Corporation is hoping the ‘food truck rodeo' concept catches on.
"Rosie's had just put together a truck and they wanted to
be down here, so we worked with them to get set up," Thomas explained. "Once
Rosie's was here, Chick-fil-A said, ‘That looks like a good idea.' Now, we've
got tacos coming and Deets Barbecue wants to come next week."
Just a block up on Madison, Bret Barrett has been running
his Hot Dog Express business during lunchtime for the past six years. He
doesn't consider the food trucks to be a threat, at least for now.
"At the moment, not really. It's a novelty and they're
trying things out," Barrett said.
Barone says the competition will be good for business.
"It's like the Central Avenue Strip," he said. "The more,
the merrier. Everybody goes to a certain area to eat; it's like a food court."
Thomas says with upgrades being made at Promenade Park,
the goal is to have room for food trucks to operate along Summit Street as
early as next year.
