WASHINGTON, PA – Parking a food truck inside a casino makes perfect sense to Kevin Brogan.
“We are a casino. We are supposed to have things you don’t normally see,” says Brogan, the director of marketing for The Meadows Racetrack and Casino in Washington County.
Within the next week or two, visitors to The Meadows will find the Band Wagon, an 18-by-8-foot food truck, cooking and selling fast-food items next to the Casino’s Headliners entertainment lounge. Food-truck hours will be 5 p.m.-1 a.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays.
“We have music (in Headliners) three nights a week. So, while watching the bands, you can have a snack,” says Ari Sobel, food-and-beverage director.
The food truck is Sobel’s brainchild.
“We want to appeal to a younger demographic – (age) 30-60 – but once people see it, they will appreciate it,” Sobel says. “The menu will change every week with 100-percent, made-from-scratch, locally sourced food items. The emphasis is on high quality and fresh, fun food.”
Look for $3-$5 casual eats, such as brisket burger and lobster-roll sliders, french fries and fried Twinkies.
The Band Wagon is one of two new food options that the Casino is offering. Both are designed as efficient venues to fuel visitors who are eager to get back to the racetrack or casino floor.
