Luxury Hotels Jump On The Food Truck Band Wagon

They have professional kitchens and a huge staff of foodservice employees, but they still love having food trucks on the premises. We’re talking about top-rated hotels that are offering food truck cuisine to their guests.

The Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes, the Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes and the Fairmont at Newport Beach have each hired gourmet food trucks to cater for large group events. The Ritz-Carlton at Dove Mountain in Tucson has gotten in on the act by rolling out its own food truck that combines on-the-street dining with sumptuous, gourmet meals. The resort’s guests can chow down on upscale tacos filled with buffalo, fish or vegetables, as well as luxury sliders.

The Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts in Southern California has its own a food truck that travels between eight different properties. Lucky diners may munch on a bass and avocado panini, crab Louis rolls, homemade gnocchetti and fried green tomatoes.

Hyatt Hotels hired nine separate food trucks with a wide range of offerings to attend the chain’s 2012 sales meeting. The trucks served several hundred dinners, all of whom returned to their respective properties with novel ideas for feeding and entertaining their own hotel guests.

According to professional event planners, gourmet food trucks are great caterers … even on hotel properties that have a perfectly good kitchen and staff. The trucks give diners an unexpected experience that is trendy and entertaining. By combining delicious food and a casual atmosphere, business meetings go from boring to fun and become an ideal place for networking.
