TACOMA, WA – Tacoma’s first food truck pod opened on March 6, located at 1210 Tacoma Ave. S., Tacoma. Visitors and locals alike can enjoy two different vendors every day between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on the weekdays.

On opening week, two of the vendors, Boss Mama’s Kitchen (BMK) and Low Riders Dogs, had to close early due to code enforcement violation. Boss Mama’s Kitchen owner, Jen Gustin, is fully permitted through the State of Washington, the Health Department, and the City of Tacoma. However she was unaware of an extra curbside vending permit that was required at the new location. She shared the mishap with Trail employees when they came to visit the Pod, and on her Facebook page. Many of the other vendors registered at the new lot were missing the parking permit. Gustin spread the word to allow her fellow vendors to be fully legalized for opening week. She returned open for business on March 9.

Some of the vendors that will be featured at the Tacoma Pod for at least 60 days include: Boss Mama’s Kitchen, South Beach Cuisine, It’s Espresso on the Go, Farrelli’s pizza, It’s Greek to Me, Stacks, and Low Riders Dogs.

Each vendor offers some kind of unique charming dish, from BMK’s peanut butter and bacon burger to authentic gyros at It’s Greek to Me. There are plenty of delicious dishes to choose from. The schedule of vendors is available at www.wafoodtrucks.org/tacoma-ave-lot/.
