A growing trend in major cities and the food service industry is the emergence of food trucks. Following this movement, Texas Tech University’s Hospitality Services will unveil its first food truck on Monday (Aug. 4). This is the first food truck to emerge on a university campus in the Big 12 Conference.
A ribbon cutting for the StrEat food truck will take place at 11:30 a.m., and the truck will provide samples of some of the menu items immediately after. Hospitality Services officials along with Texas Tech President M. Duane Nellis will participate in the ribbon cutting.
The StrEat food truck is a mobile extension of the established retail location in the Student Union Building but will feature a different menu. Hospitality Services Executive Chef Dewey McMurrey created a unique menu with options full of a variety of flavors. To keep the menu fresh and flexible, there will be a blend of new items added to the menu monthly.
