TOLEDO, OH – Downtown Toledo workers craving offerings of the city’s food truck businesses may soon have a permanent location for their luncheon dining.

Maggie Bauman, manager of Grumpy’s on the Go food truck, wants to create a daily one-stop shop for food truck operators on Summit Street in North Toledo’s Historic Vistula District.

“As part of the Toledo food truck community, there is definitely a need for a place to gather,” she said.

A request from Ms. Bauman to rezone the former Andre’s Lounge restaurant and its parking lot to allow for a “food truck park” will be reviewed Thursday by the Toledo Plan Commission.

The park would operate 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the half-acre lot at 1337 N. Summit and offer a rotation of two or three local food trucks each day. It would provide tables and chairs for customers and portable restrooms. The former restaurant building would not be part of the food truck park.

Currently, the city has no venue dedicated to the growing food truck business. A block of North St. Clair Street at Levis Square in the downtown is blocked for mobile trucks and trailers to sell during the popular Thursday concert series during the summer.
