Wahoo’s Makes Us Go Boo Hoo With Food Truck Talk
We were pretty excited back in May to hear that Wahoo’s Fish Tacos was coming to NYC, and according to The Feast their first location will be opening on November 15th on Park Ave. btw. 24+25th. We were hoping that it would be in Midtown proper, but I guess Flatiron isn’t the worst news in the world (especially considering that they plan on opening at least 5 more locations in NYC, so there’s still a chance.) The actual worst news in the world is the tidbit that they are hoping to bring one of their food trucks to the city. Seriously? Have they not been reading about all the issues facing food trucks in New York these days? It’s one thing to open a food truck because it’s your only option, or because food trucks have been in your family for years, or you are passionate about being a part of the fabric of the mobile food vending community. But using it as a billboard for your 5 to 12 NYC franchises is unconscionable. We love you Wahoo’s, and NYC should be excited for your fish tacos. But leave your food trucks at home.
