Drive In, Order Up: Food Truck Park Coming to Smyrna
Food Truck Tuesdays are in the works for Smyrna's Taylor Brawner Park.
The food trucks are coming! The food trucks are coming! Smyrna City Council voted at its meeting Monday to approve Smyrna Food Truck Tuesdays at Taylor Brawner Park. The first food truck event could be held as early as June 26, said Jennifer Bennett, Smyrna’s community relations director.
Smyrna resident Bettie Cagle is the organizer of the Virginia Highlands food truck event. She approached Bennett about starting a food truck event in Smyrna.
“The Smyrna one could easily be the best food truck location in the metro area,” Bennett said.
She said they hope to ultimately bring between seven and 12 food trucks event. Smyrna’s hometown food truck, Happy Belly Food Truck told Smyrna-Vinings Patch via Twitter that they’re excited about the prospect of a food truck park.
“We are looking forward to getting started in our backyard,” Happy Belly said in a Tweet.
Bennett said the food trucks would set up in Taylor Brawner Park near the playground each Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
