On the Boards: The Hub Food Truck Park
Utah food truck lovers anticipate permanent location in South Jordan
If you’re a foodie, you’re likely a food truck lover. One of the best ways to sample different types of grub, from traditional ethnic dishes to gourmet cuisine, food trucks have become the eatery of today. If you’ve made your purchase at a food truck, however, you know there is a downside: Where does one sit and enjoy their fare? Gas-powered generators used by most food trucks can be noisy and smelly. Food truck parks typically fill parking lots or open spaces without seating or shade.
Curtis Miner Architecture (CMA) was approached by The Food Truck League, Salt Lake City’s top source for all things related to food trucks; including catering, event planning, and corporate lunches. With a keen understanding of the pros and cons of food truck parks, The Food Truck League asked CMA to come up with a design for a Pavilion that would do away with the difficulties inherent in food truck catering.
CMA has designed a 1,994 SF structure to house up to 12 food trucks. Located in South Jordan, The Hub is an entirely new solution for food truck eating. The permanent location features seating for 160. Its pavilion design allows garage-style doors to open and shut as needed.

The foundation has been poured, and framing has begun, with construction completion anticipated in late-August or September. The Food Truck League anticipates potential additional locations in northern Utah and southern Utah, in the Ogden and Lehi areas.
