Update: Memphis Food Truck Park’s future in limbo

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Memphis Food Truck Park may soon no longer be serving up delicious meals to hungry locals.

In a Facebook message posted Thursday, the group stated they would be closing indefinitely, starting January 1.

“We would like to thank all the visitors for their support and loyalty to the park over the past year. It has been a pleasure meeting all different types of wonderful people and understanding how good food can bring people together.”

The post appears to have garnered such a big reaction that the group made another post Friday with another announcement.

“We did not expect this much reaction from our Facebook followers and are truly moved! We are currently in discussion with several people who wish to purchase this park and operate it as an owner operated Food Truck Park facility. We will be weighing all of our options in the upcoming weeks in hopes the park is not a lost.”

The park on Old Getwell Road at Winchester Road opened back in February and is right in the middle of what’s seemingly a restaurant desert.

The post didn’t provide a specific reason for the closure.
