Boston University May Be Opening a Food Truck of Its Own

The section of Boston and Brookline near where Boston University is located is one of a number of sites where food trucks are set up, and now it looks like the university itself may be joining in on the food truck craze.

The Daily Free Press is reporting that BU is seeking licenses and a permit to open a food truck that features Asian fusion fare, with the truck being set up at several locations around the university's campus. Dining Services Director Barbara Laverdiere, who told the newspaper that she hopes to get through the permitting process this fall, states that "We think there is a need based on areas of the campus that do not have as many dining options close at hand," and that "Hopefully students will be happy to have another venue at which they can use convenience points."

[October 1 update: A message from Eat.Live.Blog indicates that the new BU food truck could be opening in the next two or three weeks, and that it will be called Fan Boy. It also looks like their Asian fusion concept will have a California influence to it.]

Currently, food trucks such as Pennypacker's, Clover, Bon Me, Roxy's Grilled Cheese, and others are set up in the BU area.
