Two more food trucks have announced plans to launch this year in Portland:
Paddy Wagon (instagram) plans to be located outside Free Range Fish and Lobster on Commercial Street. Owners Luke Benning and David McGuirk will be serving “traditional pub fare” such as fish and chips, battered sausages, and chip butties with a marbled egg. On Saint Patrick’s Day they will also be running a bangers and mash special. McGuirk is from Dublin Ireland, he and Benning have both worked together at the Westin, Saltwater Grille and the Woodlands Club.
Curbside Comfort (instagram) will be serving “plant-based vegan comfort food”. The menu is still under development but will include items such as “mac & cheese with various toppings” and vegan soft-serve ice cream. Owners Suzanne and Trent Grace hope to launch in June.
There’s been a significant uptick in food trucks and carts planning to launch this year. With these two this brings the count of new/expading mobile food businesses up to 15. See our Under Construction page for a complete list of projects under development right now…and stay tuned for more announcements over the next couple months as more go public.
