With his unique sauce combinations, Willie Wing’s food truck owner Willie Finley has grown his truck into one of Wichita’s most popular. Now, he’s taking on another venture; opening a new food truck community location.
In a Facebook post Thursday, Finley announced plans to open on March 1The Truck Stop, a parking lot dedicated to food trucks near the intersection of Kellogg and Woodlawn.
The lot, which will have room for 13 trucks, will be open from 11 a.m.- 8 p.m., seven days a week. Finley said owners can choose between daily, weekday, or weekend packages that he believes will allow the owners flexibility when choosing a business model.
“ I wanted to help the food truck community and up-coming entrepreneurs connect, test the market, and have a central place to do business,” said Finley. “ I believe our food trucks can stand toe-to-toe with any community in the country.”
Finley believes establishing a single location where there are more choices, will make it easier for individuals or families to find menu items to satisfy different tastes. In addition, he believes The Truck Stop’s Kellogg location will also prove attractive.
“ I think the location is perfect because of the Kellogg traffic people can just pop in, grab some food, and get back on the highway,” said Finley.
More than just a grab and go, the site will also feature a dining area, perfect for lunch breaks outdoors and dining under the stars. In addition, the site will offer Doordash capabilities and a snow cone truck in the summer.
The demand for spots is growing, and with five trucks already confirmed, Finley encourages trucks owners to seize a unique opportunity.
