Work on New Food Truck Court Begins in Harrisonburg

Reporter: Carly Stephenson

HARRISONBURG, Va. -- There's a food truck court coming to Harrisonburg.

It would be a chance for food trucks to have one central location in Harrisonburg.

The plans to expand will happen where the Grilled Cheese Mania truck is on South High Street. This is the third time this year that people in Harrisonburg have attempted to have a food truck court.

Kathleen Mania-Casey, who runs the Grilled Cheese Mania food truck, said the third time is the charm. Mania-Casey said the new court would be called "Trucks."

The man who owns the land has already started making changes. They've moved the sheds back, including one that Casey's daughter built, to make room for other trucks.

Crews have also added electricity options that other trucks could use. The landowner is looking for two trucks to join in this location on South High Street.

The goal is have up to eight trucks. Mania-Casey said eventually there will be a covered pavilion with more seating. She's looking forward to having more food options for people in the area.

"They tried to put another one in town and it just didn't work but I guess this is just where it was supposed to be, so we have a good business here so they're going to add the extra trucks and we're excited. We're excited to have neighbors and a little diversity in food, too," said Mania-Casey.

Grilled Cheese Mania will be open during all of these changes.
