Food Truck Wednesdays, a weekly dinnertime food truck event, will launch for the first time in Timonium on April 4.
The event will bring about a dozen food trucks to the Red Lion Hotel in Timonium every week from April to October. Food Truck Wednesdays is in its second year at the Arbutus Volunteer Fire Department, in Arbutus.
“I think it’s going to be a great partnership,” said Chad Houck, co-owner of H2 Markets, the company that runs the events.
The company also operates Food Truck Tuesdays in Severn and Glen Burnie, and Food Truck Thursdays in Odenton and Middle River.
Houck, who used to live in Timonium, said felt there would be demand in the area because while the area has plenty of restaurant options, “there’s not a ton of new ones.”
The food trucks will pay Red Lion rent to set up in the parking lot outside the hotel, Houck said. Customers will be able to sit near the trucks, inside the hotel atrium, or at outdoor seating by the pool. The hotel will offer a full bar.
The same dozen food trucks have been going to Arbutus during the Food Truck Wednesdays season, but Houck said he wanted to add the second location in Timonium to switch it up, sending a second dozen food trucks to Arbutus and then rotating them out every week.
“Customers said they’d like to have a little more variety in the food trucks,” Houck said.
Cuisine offerings will include Greek, Italian, barbecue, pizza, Korean fusion and ice cream, Houck said.
The event is a “blessing for food trucks,” who are more able to make money off the lunch rush than around dinnertime, said Greek on the Street owner Angelo Miklos.
