The food truck craze that has swept the nation will soon roll up to Los Angeles International Airport.
No, airport security won’t allow food trucks to pull to the curb of the terminal. Instead, an airport concession operator plans to install the shell of a food truck inside of Terminal 4. The fake truck will be outfitted inside with grills, pots, pans and other equipment to serve food.
Starting Nov. 1, the food truck will be operated by food truck chefs based in Los Angeles, who will rotate in once a year or so.
“This is our way to help bring people with local talent to offer their food at the airport,” said Rich Bennett, senior director of operations for HMSHost, a concession operator at Los Angeles International Airport.
