City Plaza Turning into Food Truck Court This Summer

After months of debate of where the new 'food truck court' should be located, the City of Raleigh has decided to turn City Plaza into The Raleigh Food Truck Court for the entire Summer. Only Burger, Klausies, Mom's and a few others are already on board. 

Asked to comment about how the new competition will affect their business, the owners of Jimmy John's said they have decided to close up their pavilion restaurant and open up a food truck on the plaza instead. Empire Properties is rumored to also be entering the food truck game with a soup truck. Poole's Diner, your move. Too bad there won't be any coffee trucks in City Plaza.

    Soup truck?  I agree, not what comes to mind when it’s 90 degrees outside.
