Food trucks are coming to Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport
PHOENIX — Look out, travelers: Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport could get food trucks on its property very soon.
The airport is one step closer to getting on-site food trucks after Phoenix City Council approved a plan to allow it to amend contracts with existing operators so food trucks can be allowed.
Heather Lissner, a spokeswoman for the airport, said Sky Harbor officials have identified 11 possible locations for the trucks.
“In addition to employee areas, such as at the American Airlines and the Southwest Airlines hangar, as well as our Facilities and Services building and at the cargo area,” she said,” we’ve also identified our three cell phone lots as possible options where these food trucks can go.”
Lissner said the food trucks could bring in between $30,000 and $40,000 in annual revenue.
“The food trucks will be helpful for customers who are picking up travelers in the cell phone waiting lots, they’ll be able to pick up something to eat or drink while they wait,” she said.
Lissner said travelers could start seeing the food trucks at the airport later this spring.
