Since its opening in 2012 the Dorrance H. Hamilton Center for Culinary Enterprises has helped many local food entrepreneurs launch their businesses: restaurants, catering services and more. Now those interested in learning the ins and outs of operating a food truck have a chance to try their hand at this business while bringing fresh, healthy food options to West Philadelphia.

The Culinary Center, located at 310 S. 48th St., launched their first food truck incubator last month. The program is based on the Beefsteak food truck concept (patented by James Beard award-winning chef and humanitarian Jose Andres’ Think Food Group). 

Aspiring food entrepreneurs, food truck operators or chefs are invited to apply for the program (applications are accepted on a rolling basis).

The food truck is fully operational and the program participants will receive training and support on Beefsteak concept as well as technical assistance and access to the commissary kitchen for food prep. A shared revenue model will be offered during the incubator period – a six-month operating window from the hours of 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. with a minimum of five days per week.

    Oh man. Is this going to be operating around the 48/Spruce intersection? I could totally use a good food truck around there besides the fruit salad truck. (No offense to the fruit salad people!)
