Assumption College Jumping On Food Truck Bandwagon
WORCHESTER, MA - Oxedos Street Grub is the new food truck that rolled into the Assumption College campus last week.
Sodexo, the food service provider to Assumption College, owns the truck, which will be parked on campus several times a month, according to Linda Davey, Sodexo’s Marketing Manager.
Oxedos, (Sodexo spelled backward), offered Assumption students and faculty an interesting lunch menu during its first run. Items included an “All-American Grilled Cheese,” “Beantown Grilled Cheese,” “South End Fenway Frank” and a “Korean BBQ,” an Asian-style wrap sandwich that featured pulled pork. Interesting combinations. The wrap was yummy! Potato chips, cookies, etc. also were available.
Davey described the food truck craze as “the grownup version of the ice cream truck.” Food trucks are fast and convenient, offering food that students can eat on the go, she said.
Sodexo’s future plans at Assumption include making the food truck available for dinner and even late night dining, according to Davey. “Right now, we only serve lunch, but we will expand hours,” Davey said. “We were happy with the students’ response last week.”
Michael Ward, general manager of campus dining services for Sodexo at Assumption, said the food truck adds to the dining experience on campus. The food truck will conveniently be situated at different locations on campus, he said. “We might even have the food truck at future sporting events,” Ward added.
Oxedos travels to college campuses in Greater Boston and northern New England. The food truck picks up its supplies at Sodexo at Bentley University in Waltham.
Davey said Sodexo is considering other local college campuses for food truck service.
Everyone’s hopping on the food truck trend.
The Food Network is already casting for season 3 of the “Great Food Truck Race” with Tyler Florence.
