Food Trucks

Are there any food trucks in the Flagstaff area and if so which ones would you recommend and where can I find them?

Thanks!

That is a doozie of a question! You will need to look to FlagstaffTraveler for the answer to that one.

Not really a big food truck scene here that I can recommend. Interestingly. the Great Food Truck Race did film in Flagstaff awhile back and that episode recently aired.

I did see a new Sonoran Hot Dogs cart the other day. It was parked off of 4th street, I believe. Other than that, the only food trucks I've seen in town are the type that cater to construction workers, not the gourmet variety you'd see elsewhere.

If you'd like to tell me what type of cuisine you most enjoy, I can make some recommendations.

Best roadside food stands in northern AZ aren't the typical food trucks. But you'll see vendors selling varieties of jerky and on the Rez you can find some natives selling fry breads.

They were going to film for a day in Sedona and canceled. Food trucks just aren't a big deal in northern AZ. Plenty to be found down in PHX and busier city environments.

Flagstaff and Sedona have plenty of great places for foodies. You'll find them inside of permanent structures.

So, basically, is it that Flagstaff government isn't friendly for food trucks or is it that the target market doesn't support it?

I'm not aware of any prohibition against temporary food vendors. They're certainly prevalent at festivals, etc. I'd say it's more the demographic of the town and the fact that the population is not large. They certainly seem to do well at the festivals, when more people come out.

Hmmmm well I need to do more research before I even consider doing a food truck with soul food. The number of permits and licenses seems to me to be a deterrent to new small businesses in Arizona.

Hi Michelle-How did your research go? Are you thinking about food trucking it? I don't get why street food wouldn't be a hit. Maybe we should team up.
