What campus are you talking about? What times would work best to work in the evenings?

I’m looking for a food truck to come by our campus in the evenings around 7:30pm M-F. We have about 800 students on campus and they get hungry. The food has to be inexpensive like fries, tacos, burgers, grilled cheese, etc. Anyone know of anybody available?

Was going through the list and think some of the trucks are no longer around. Just the Tip, Limmes, Ms. Sushi, Pig Rig, OB Seafood, Our Daily, SD Street Eats, Streetside, Sushi Ninjas. Also why is swieners & casanova fish tacos on the list- they aren’t even food trucks or even trailers (they are booths)

I’m off of Palomar Airport Road on the north side of Palomar Oaks Way, first parking lot on the left, and I would love to patronize any trucks that come by. There are 3 buildings here and there used to be trucks here but the complex lost a lot of tenants in the recession. People are moving back in, though, and if anyone came by, I’m sure I’m not the only one who would be stoked! There’s nothing to eat for miles!

San Diego’s ITT Technical Institute just relocated to National City, CA. We have a great big parking lot at the moment and I’m researching the possibility of organizing a monthly food truck gathering for both our school students and staff as well as for the general public. We are located on a busy street (Mile of Cars Way) right off the I-5 freeway and one block west of the famous Mile of Cars. Any information or interest in setting this up would be appreciated. Thank you.

I work at a company that has a little over 100 employees. We currently have a “roach coach” that comes everyday at 9:30 but recently they have sold spoiled food and spoiled drinks. My boss wants me to find a new food truck to come in because of this. The only problem is I have no idea how to go about it. Ideally it would be something not so expensive that has drinks and stuff like fries, burgers, tacos, salads ect.

I work at a machine shop at the end of bond ave. Off the lake jennings exit there are a bunch of shops out here. We need a lunch truck that servers good fresh food to come up this cul-de-sac, 9am or 11:30am.

I am being pulled in many directions like most first time food truck owners. I love California but it is lucrative to stay and operate here? what is the cost of a license etc? as opposed to Portland where small business is welcome and costs are lower? Would like to hear from people who have experienced on or the other and get a true evaluation. Thanks!

Very similar to Annie’s situation, I am trying to do my due diligence and better understand the food truck universe.

I am interested in learning more about this Health Department License and I would appreciate any of the details you have shared with Annie. Please feel free to contact me. AS10OO87@gmail.com.

We are looking for a truck to come visit our work. There are 4 companies here ranging from 20 to over 100 employees each. The location is an alley between Hancock st and Kurtz st in Point Loma (92110). The cross street is Sherman st.
There is one truck that comes mon-fri 9am and 11am for 15 min each. But the quality of the food is terrible. As a result most people go out to eat lunch. any takers?
