It seems like just yesterday that food trucks were only found on the streets of major cities, but that has changed. Today these roaming restaurants cruise through university towns of all sizes, parking on college campuses and earning top grades for the foods they serve.
While some food trucks are run by private operators, many university and college foodservice departments have recognized the value of and profitability of food truck cuisine, and they’re running their own food truck business.
The University of Washington operates three food trucks. Hot Dawgs serves hot dogs and sausages and Motosurf sells Hawaiian and Pacific island offerings. The third truck, Red Square is known for BBQ. Independent operators are not permitted on campus.
At California State University at Fullerton, the schooloperates two food trucks on weekdays. The Spudrunners truck serves gourmet sandwiches, while the Barcelona On the Go is famous for Spanish tapas.
The Eat at State On-The-Go food truck is operated by the Michigan State University dining service department, offering burgers, sandwiches, salads, snacks and drinks year-round to hungry students. Each item is made using local ingredients, such as greens grown at the MSU Student Organic Farm and cheese from the MSU Dairy Store.
The Yum Yum Cupcake Truck, owned and operated by the University of Central Florida, serves classic cupcakes around campus.
When the student center at Colorado State University closed for major reconstruction, the school announced it would rely on food trucks to fill the gap in its campus dining services.
