Look out Inver Grove Heights, the food trucks are coming.
On Thursday, September 24 seven confirmed food trucks will set up shop at Veterans Memorial Community Center as part of Food Truck Day in September. Hosted by the River Heights Chamber of Commerce the goal of the event is to provide one day of additional lunch options along with a dynamic networking experience for the 10,000 employees in the region, said Jennifer Gale, President of the River Heights Chamber of Commerce and the Progress Plus Economic Development Foundation.
“The River Heights Chamber of Commerce gets asked all the time why don’t we try to attract more restaurants into the community,” says Gale. “We know that the market is what dictates if and when restaurants will enter into our communities, but together, the City and the Chamber can partner to provide a fun experience for those that work in the community for one day. We value the restaurants in Inver Grove Heights and hope this compliments the existing venues by bringing in people from all over Dakota County to see what IGH has to offer.”
The River Heights Chamber of Commerce represents south metro businesses, including Inver Grove Heights and South Saint Paul. There are over 10,000 daytime employees who travel through the Inver Grove Heights region, and the goal of Food Truck Day in September is to get area workers, residents and those passing through the community to try a new lunch idea without having to go into the cities to park. The event will take place at Veterans Memorial Community Center on a blocked off street, with plenty of parking for out of area employees and services to support the event.
There’s no need to fight the traffic of going to downtown Minneapolis or St. Paul to feast at your favorite food truck. Among the confirmed food trucks attending the event will be a food truck from Hometown Meats of Inver Grove Heights and other popular Twin Cities-based food trucks, including:
This is a unique opportunity for local residents to get out and try something new within the city. Let’s show up and show that Inver Grove Heights supports local businesses and opportunities like this.
See you at Food Truck Day in September this Thursday!
