VIRGINIA — A recent USA Today story has highlighted several high-end hotels attracting customers with food trucks and pop-up restaurants while marketing their property menus.
The Auberge Saint-Antoine hotel in Quebec City is set to open a second food truck, with its restaurant’s chef in the driver seat; Miami’s Setai hotel opened a Beach Kiosk last year; and the upcoming SLS Hotel South Beach in Miami is set to have a food truck run by celebrity chef José Andrés.
Hudson Riehle, senior vice-president of the National Restaurant Association, told the newspaper that convenience has always been a key contributing factor to the restaurant industry’s growth. “Hotels are expanding on foodservice, in general,” he said. “A logical step would be mobility of the restaurant platform.”
