Tuesday, August 2, 2022

The first Friday of the month is Food Truck Friday. Each month, hungry Chattanoogans can enjoy a variety of foods created by local culinary entrepreneurs served from their food trucks at the 
Kitchen Incubator of Chattanooga.

August’s Food Truck Friday will be held this Friday from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.

"With 10 of  the restaurants on wheels participating, Food Truck Friday is a great way for the Chattanooga community to take a fun break during the work day while also helping new culinary businesses achieve the goal of having a brick-and-mortar restaurant," organizers said.

“The purpose of Food Truck Friday is to have a space to promote local food entrepreneurs. 
KIC’s role is to offer support, coaching and continued education for all food-based startups in 
the Chattanooga Area,” says Kitchen Incubator of Chattanooga Director Mark Holland.

The list of participating food trucks for August’s Food Truck Friday include: Mac’s Subs and 
Fries (Phillys, subs and homemade fries), Wings Top Tots (chicken wings and tater tots), BBQ 
Rowe and Catering (stuffed turkey legs), Goureet Eatery Company (Po Boys and Phillys),

Dominican cuisine) and Rileigh & Company (shrimp and grits).

Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union sponsors Food Truck Friday and is a supporter 
of the Kitchen Incubator of Chattanooga. 

"Food trucks are ready to serve hungry patrons from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the first Friday of each 
month at the Kitchen Incubator of Chattanooga at 5704 Marlin Road off of Eastgate 
Loop in the Brainerd area," organizers said.
