The Washington State Food Truck Association has partnered with the Bellevue Red Lion to bring more food truck lunches downtown, starting March 1.
This location will offer a large variety of food trucks in the northwest corner of the Downtown Red Lion parking lot at 11211 Main St., adjacent to the new East Main Station Sound Transit Center construction site. The street-level station will provide increased transit access to surrounding residences, neighborhoods and businesses in southeast downtown Bellevue.
The new food truck pod will be in service weekdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to give downtown some new energy and bring unique food options to the area. The food trucks are hoping to see a lot of foot traffic from the neighboring Hilton hotel, the Meydenbauer Center, City Hall, the police and fire departments and local commuters.
Food trucks that will be on site on opening day will offer Asian fusion, eclectic gourmet, Latin and other fare. To see which trucks will participate and their menus, access the schedule via the Best Food Trucks website at www.bestfoodtrucks.com/lots/profile/867.
In an effort to bring more vending opportunities to the ever-growing population of food trucks, the Washington State Food Truck Association has been working to find new and underserved locations for food trucks.
“We now have close to 1,500 permitted mobiles in Washington and unique ones opening left and right,” said Lori Johnson, the director of the association.
For vendors who wish to participate at this new location, you will need to provide a copy of your Bellevue city business license, King County Health Department annual food permit, a certificate of insurance and agree to the association’s terms and conditions.
If you would like more information about this new food truck vending opportunity or how to participate, contact the association at 360-223-3801 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
