Trucks are assigned to certain spots on certain days. Spots were assigned through a lottery system with some trucks winning spots in the most coveted, high sale areas in the Nation’s Capital like Ferragut North, Union Station, and L’Enfant Plaza.
The city says that lottery will bring “predictability and certainty” to customers, according to a report by the Associated Press. However, not everyone is excited about the idea.
“I kind of like coming out here once in a while and seeing what there is,” Jeff Bishop, a Washington DC food truck enthusiast told WTOP on Friday “The idea of having the same truck in the same place every day - I don’t like at all,” he says.
Some Food Truck owners aren’t too thrilled about the change either.
Basil Thyme food truck owner Brian Farrell, who has ended up at Foggy Bottom on Mondays as a result of the lottery, told WTOP he doesn’t think the change will be good for business.
“I don’t even know what to do with that. We make everything from scratch, so we’re at a price point of $11 and $12. The G.W. students are not my target audience,” he says.
