Food truck industry steadily growing in East Texas

Food Truck industry steadily growing

EAST TEXAS - The food truck business is booming in Longview, but Tyler is still catching up.

Today Longview hosted Food Truck Friday, where people could try different kinds of food from food trucks.

Carlo D'Angelo is the developer of Tyler Food Truck Park. He is proud of the work they have put in since 2014 but now the project is on hold.

"The decision was I needed to move on from the project because although I have a passion in the food truck industry and I still do,” D’Angelo says. “I needed to make a decision with respect to how many were in the marketplace and at the time there were not enough to sustain a food truck park."

There still is hope for food trucks in Tyler.

Net Health approves permits for food trucks and their CEO George Roberts, says they have more than 300 consultations for permits.
