According to an item in Grub Street yesterday, David Burke is working on a deal with the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, future home of the NY (Brooklyn?) Nets.
Burke told Grub St: “I have an idea for baby mobile food trucks — gate 1A could be serving sliders at one point during a game, then gate 2B would have cupcakes.”
What exactly are baby mobile food trucks – something like this or more like this?
He would use social media or in-stadium announcements to let people know what food is being served at any given time: “We would have a few trucks, and they would drive by with items until they sell out.” He adds, “The food might also be related to the team playing, like Philadelphia cheesesteaks.”
I can see it now – an announcement that cupcakes are being sold at Gate 1A. Did you ever see hundreds or possibly thousands of people descending on a food truck all at once. Not a pretty sight.
Look on the bright side. Maybe Nets part owner Jay-Z can get his buddy ?uestlove to bring in his buttermilk fried chicken food truck or those sweet potato pie doughnuts on a stick!
