COLLEGE STATION, TX – In order to make food trucks more accessible to customers, a small business owner set out to change city ordinances and create a new food truck park in College Station.
Located adjacent to the train tracks at the corner of Wellborn and University, Wayside Food Park is now home to a number of food trucks including DBQ Barbeque, Fire Truck Crepes and Bacongate, with more to come.
College Station city ordinances previously required food trucks to move around from place to place. However, DBQ Barbeque and Catering owner Derek Barre convinced the city to change this ordinance to make food trucks more accessible to customers. After the ordinance was passed on October 8, 2015, Barre and his business partners, Matt Abegglen and Alex Jester, opened Wayside Food Park on December 6, 2017.
“[Wayside is] open as early as 7 a.m.,” Barre said “We’re just open when [the trucks] are, so if some wants to come in at 5 a.m. we’ll be open for them.”
