The delicious sensation of gourmet goodies on wheels is sweeping Columbus this summer. Food trucks have come to the rescue of empty stomachs dating all the way back to the post World War II era, when the army established mobile food carriers to make food more easily accessible to hungry workers. In recent years, the food truck movement has taken on the nation, enabling small culinary hopefuls to gain ground - and fans - in the hyper-competitive restaurant industry. From Cuban sandwiches to organic rice bowls, food trucks are visiting BMI FCU with the foods you're craving.
Every Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. we host a different food truck at our Dublin location to support small business and highlight all the terrific foods and confections our local mobile chefs have to offer.
At BMI Federal Credit Union, we admire the creativity, skill and entrepreneurial spirit of these outgoing businesses.
Here's a few of the trucks you can expect to find this summer on Food Truck Fridays.
Established in 2014, the Kinetic food truck offers gourmet-quality fare for health-conscious diners on the go. Born out of a student project, Kinetic is a working product of a youthful ideal - that healthy, sophisticated food can be as fun and fast. Dedicated to the use of clean-energy sources, biodegradable packaging, and nutrient-rich, exciting food that aim to fuel you better, Kinetic proves that responsibility can be delicious.
Short North Bagel Deli
Inspired by a tradition started on the bustling streets of New York City, the Short North Bagel has locations in Chicago, Indianapolis and Miami. When they brought their business to Ohio in the 1970s, they started their food truck enterprise and have been serving Ohioans ever since. Short North has a popular selection of classic and unconventional bagel sandwiches from the hearty Rubenstein to the Red, White & Boooom!
Dr. Mom's Tasty Bites
Dr. Mom's has been serving tasty and healthful foods at delicious prices since 2012. They use only the best ingredients in their American & Mediterranean menu. You'll find no saturated fats in their one-of-a-kind paninis, gyros, hamburger or shawarma. They are managed by a qualified nutritionist who makes sure the food they serve is balanced, nutritious and worthy of the people they serve.
The Burrito Bus
When it comes to giving customers what they want, the Burrito Bus doesn't fool around. Born out of a childhood dream, it's an ever-present character at music festivals, vendor fairs and other community events. Based on traditional Mexican food, the menu is full of savory favorites that are perfect for fun, celebration or just a satisfying lunch under the sun. Enjoy Rockin' Tacos, Papa's Salad, a Hot Mama Burrito or design your own South American creation all with fresh and flavorful ingredients.
Enjoy an eclectic menu full of Cuban flavor with monthly specials from exotic locations. This popular restaurant in Merion Village had generated so much buzz that they had to send out their simple, pioneering flavor on a food truck.
