The Grain Valley Fair and Grain Valley Partnership have teamed up to present Food Truck Friday Nights at the northwest corner of Walnut and Main beginning June 19th.
Mayor Michael Todd said the idea came to him watching the excitement around food trucks visiting the Rosewood Hills subdivision during the stay-at-home orders.
“Having a larger selection of places to eat is something we have heard for years. The city has worked really hard on getting new places, but unfortunately with COVID-19, I think we are going to see a lot of those expansion plans for restaurants slow down. I saw this is a way to get some already established places (food trucks) to come to town,” Todd said.
Trucks scheduled for June 19th include The Tasty Unicorn, Rolling in the Dough, and Hero’s New York Griddle. For updated information, visit the Grain Valley Fair’s website at www.grainvalleyfair.com.
“My hope is they see how great business can be in Grain Valley and then they decide to come and set up more often in other places around town. A lot of restaurants start off as food trucks now, so maybe if one of these trucks decides to open a brick and mortar store, they will consider Grain Valley,” Todd said.
