Bleu Garten, OKC's first food truck park, prepares for opening
Food trucks in Oklahoma City are nothing new but now, the city will be getting it's first ever daily food truck park.It's called the Bleu Garten and if your favorite food truck is a part of it, you can say see ya to having to check its website, Twitter, or an app to find out where it's going next.Electric hookups mean six trucks can line up and dish out food to customers all in one place, but that's not all. It's more than just a place to sit down and eat the food from the food trucks. There are TV's for big games and a capacity of more than 600 people. The Bleu Garten also has entertainment and a bar.Owner Hunter Wheat says its a win-win because it's inexpensive for the food truck owners, and gives them access to more customers."The bar is going to generate enough revenue. The whole idea with this thing was to help innovative chefs scale their visions, and we just want to help them to get to the next level." Wheat says.Wheat says he's traveled to other cities like San Francisco and Atlanta where they have food truck parks, but this is the first of its kind to hit Oklahoma City. So far, several food trucks have signed up for spots in the next week, and more spots are available.Tonight on the Fox 25 News at 5:00, find out when Bleu Garten opens up and hear from one of the trucks coming soon.
