Myers agrees, saying he’s recently noticed a spike in interest. “Within the last year, we’ve seen [many] inquiries of individuals who’d like to operate food trucks on the campus . . . any type of cuisine you can think of.’’
At UMass Amherst, Toong, who is well underway with planning the introduction of Baby Berk II later this year, is a firm believer in the movement. “I think food trucks will always be needed on campus because of their mobility and multipurpose [abilities.] I think the future is bright, I think we’re just seeing the beginning of food trucks. . . . At the end of the day it’s a fun thing to do, [and it helps to] build a great community.”
