With the success of the Houston Food Park, it's no surprise that other property owners are looking to develop spaces around Houston where diners can visit trucks and not have to sit at a bar. When it opens Nov. 2, the new three acre My Food Park HTX at 800 Highway 6 South will offer Energy Corridor workers and residents the chance to experience multiple trucks in one location.

"I'm a food trucker myself," owner Liz Hale tells CultureMap. "I think (the park) will be a great place for the Energy Corridor."

Hale owns dessert truck Zeapod Cakery, and she's developing a location that will appeal to both trucks and diners.

 "I think it would be fun to have a Tiki bar."  

Set along the Addicks Reservoir, Hale says that the tree-lined property benefits from natural shade and is "really nice during the evening." She's adding tables and chairs to give people a place to sit and enjoy their meals. 

Asked whether she thinks properties like hers and the Houston Food Park in EaDo are the future for food trucks, Hale says "I think it is because it's a safer place for trucks to go. A lot of stuff can happen out there."

In a designated area, Hale thinks that trucks are less likely to be hassled by city inspectors or the fire marshal. 

As to whether having multiple trucks in the same place is good for truck owners, Hale says, "I like (going to a park) better. I have more options, but other trucks say the opposite."

Trucks who agree with Hale's idea that will be on hand for the grand opening include Bernie's Burger Bus, Pho-Jita Fusion, The Hungry Lumberjack, and, of course, Zeapod Cakery

For now, the park is BYOB. Hale hopes to partner with local breweries to arrange beer-driven events. Down the road, she may consider the expense of taking on a liquor license if the park proves popular. 

"I think it would be fun to have a Tiki bar," Hale muses.
