Tulsa’s first food truck court, The Park in the Pearl, opened Sept. 12 at 418 S. Peoria.

The park will feature three food trucks on weekdays with six or more trucks on the weekend.

“As the demand grows, we will add more trucks but we want each truck to leave at the end of each day with a nice profit,” says Josh Lynch, owner of The Dog House food truck and park co-owner.

Joel Bein and Chris Wygle, both co-owners of Rub food truck, are park co-owners with Lynch.

Currently, about 23 trucks have signed up to be a part of the park. Trucks will rotate so that different options are available each day.

“We want different things for people each day and innovative dishes,” Lynch says.
In order to encourage innovation, the park will recognize various food events such as national food days. On those days, food trucks must offer one dish that incorporates the specified food item, says Lynch. For instance, National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day: “it will be interesting to see the different dishes created by each food truck,” says Lynch.

Park owners are in the process of obtaining a liquor license and plan to add a bar.
While Lynch and his partners had considered other locations for a food truck court previously, such as along Riverside, the park’s western view sealed the deal. “Its the view of the downtown skyline that really sold us,” says Bein.

Hours for The Park in the Pearl are Tuesday-Thursday 11 a.m. – 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. – midnight, Sunday 11 a.m. – 8 p.m.
