Food truck operators prep for busy season

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Western New Yorkers love their outdoor food festivals in the summertime. That might be one reason why Larkin Square’s “Food Truck Tuesday” has evolved into a treasured weekly tradition, less than two years after its original launch.

The first event of 2015 takes place at the square located behind the Larkin Exchange Building tonight, May 5th, with a Cinco de Mayo theme.

This year, the thousands of visitors each week will have access to cuisine from more than forty trucks throughout the course of the season, some traveling from as far as Rochester to participate. The weekly event makes Tuesdays the busiest day for the staff on board each truck. Amanda Amico of Amy’s Truck is ready for busy season to start up again. Her truck will be debuting a new logo and design at tonight’s event.

“We thought we would bring a fresh new look for the season,” Amico said as she described the vehicle’s new wrap. “We just really wanted to kick it up a notch.”

Food Truck Tuesdays run through the end of October, with live music and a local market taking place at each one. Parking and admission are free. You can find a full schedule of events here.
