These days, creative, recession-savvy entrepreneurs know that you don't need the overhead of a restaurant to feed the masses -- just put your biz on wheels and let hungry people come to you. Although the national food truck trend rolled into Phoenix a little later than in some cities, it's definitely on the upswing now, with the Phoenix Street Food Coalition's weekly Mobile Food Court at the Downtown Phoenix Market, as well as this weekend's food truck presence at the annual Scottsdale Arts Festival.
How can you get rollin' on your own food truck? Roosevelt Row's Small Business Incubator Series, in conjunction with Local First AZ, is hosting a panel discussion with Georgie Parker of the Sunshine & Spice Food Truck, Jason Fimbrez, the Policy Director of the Phoenix Food Truck Coalition, and Brad and Kat Moore of Short Leash Dogs.
The discussion and Q&A takes place at 6:30 p.m. on March 29 at Modified Arts, 407 E. Roosevelt. Call Made Art Boutique to register (registration is free): 602-256-6233.
