One Boise couple is working to bring a food truck park to an empty lot off of 25th Street and Fairview Avenue. The space is currently owned by the City of Boise, and used to be a car lot. However, the couple hopes the eyesore could transform into ‘foodie’ heaven.
“I think we need something like this to support all of those entrepreneurs we have who are providing Boise with fantastic food for foodies,” Boise resident Matthew Sorensen said. “Boise is full of foodies.”
Sorensen and his wife want to give food trucks a more central location to set up shop in west Boise. They’re calling the proposed food truck park “West Boise Food Park”
“I just love the food trucks,” Sorensen said. “I want to be able to provide them a spot that they can call home.”
The location, he said, is only slightly selfish.
“I live in this area, so I wanted to bring them all to me,” he laughed.
But several people in Boise seemed on board with the idea, even if they don’t live in that area.
“It’s a great idea,” Boise resident Angie Gilman said. “If you want to just go and have a central place where you can say ‘Oh I want to sample this one, I want to try this one,’ it’s kind of a big open area so it seems like it’d be a good place to do that.”
“I like the idea of them being scattered, because you don’t know exactly where you’re going to end up and it’s more convenient,” Boise resident Rebecca Beard said. “But I do think it’d be a great idea to have that prime location.”
