Anchorage’s first food truck hub opens for summer

Published: Updated:

Can’t decide where to eat for lunch? There are now several more options in downtown Anchorage. The city’s first food truck hub opened on Monday at the corner of Eighth Avenue and K Street.

Known as “K Street Eats,” many vendors are hoping it will be boost to their business.

Sugar House Waffles has been in business for about a year and owner Mandy Gebuer says the hardest part about operating a food truck isn’t always the cooking, it’s often finding somewhere legal to park.

K Street Eats hopes to eliminate the hassle.

“We pay our taxes, we pay our permits, we’re ready to be a part of our community as much as a brick and mortar business is,” said K Street Eats Founder Darrin Huycke.

Huycke also started the Spenard Food Truck Carnival. He made a deal with the Anchorage Community Development Authority — which owns the formerly vacant lot at the corner of Eighth Avenue and K Street. Together they created a land-use agreement with the Municipality of Anchorage, which makes K Street Eats a legal and viable endeavor.

“I’m excited for this,” GeBuer said. “We’re supposed to have a great tourism season so I think being down here will be great.”

Eighth and K is now reserved parking – food trucks only.

K Street Eats will be open weekdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. until mid August. Different food trucks will rotate in and out, but it does come at some cost to them. Trucks will pay $50 each day they choose to park.

KTVA 11’s Shannon Ballard can be reached via email or on Facebook and Twitter.
