Vacant gas station in Butler County to become region’s first food truck court

A vacant gas station could become the region’s next culinary hotbed.

A gas station at the corner of Tylers Place Boulevard and Tylersville Road in West Chester Twp. will soon become a dedicated food truck court. The Queen City Mobile Food Truck Association will open this location on Oct. 5 — a first for Greater Cincinnati, report our news partners at WCPO.

“We will have a full lot of trucks, picnic tables … and parking along the outside perimeter,” Anthony Lange, the founder and president of QCMFTA, told WCPO.

The food court will feature about a dozen food trucks and include on-site restrooms and sheltered seating.

The plan is to eventually outfit the 60,000-square-foot space with infrastructure, such as electrical drops, a deck for live entertainment and new blacktop.

“We’re going to build a bar and indoor seating, but we’re not planning on having a liquor permit at this point. Maybe down the road,” Lange told WCPO.

Although there won’t be a commercial kitchen at the West Chester Twp. facility — which means the food truck operators will need to cook in their trucks — it will have the rest of the support structure for a food truck operation, WCPO reports.

WHERE: 7782 Tylers Place Boulevard, West Chester Township
