CBS 13's Cody Lee checks out new food trucks that opened up during the pandemic
YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - Food trucks allow for a quick and convenient way to grab a bite to eat. We’ve noticed these types of businesses popping up all over town. Some owners even tell us the pandemic paved the way for them to open up.
From homemade Birria to fresh Japanese hibachi, Yuma has it covered.
You can find food trucks almost all over town, Pacific Avenue is known for having a cluster of trucks.
Over on Eighth Street several more lined up, some of them cooking carne asada quesadillas and bacon-wrapped hot dogs.
The locations, the trucks park at, are even bringing in traffic to surrounding businesses.
Pablo Salas is the owner of the newly established Bella Hibachi food truck.
“It does help other businesses, as well as others businesses, help myself, we are all you know local businesses here, you know, in the Arizona community so what a better way than to help one another out like that,” Solis said.
At the same time, food truck owners are giving back.
“Mondays are our 'Giving Back Mondays,' my team and I created this to give back to you, even more than we've already been doing,” said the owner of Birrieria El Gordo, Isaiah Lopez.
