An Open Letter to Gateway to LA: Thanks for the Trucks!

This Tuesday while I was grabbing lunch from the trucks over at the Century Blvd Truck Lot, I met Jim Sakalis, the Operations Manager at Gateway to LA.

Gateway to LA is the group that sponsors and coordinates the truck lot.

I got a chance to chat with Jim and let him know how much I appreciated having the trucks so close to LAX for lunch every week.  Here’s the email I sent to him as a follow up to our conversation.

Hi, Jim!  This note is from Michael at South Bay Foodies; we met today at the trucks during lunch time.

Just wanted to share the link with you that I mentioned.  It has my review of the lot and the embedded calendar.

Thanks again for putting the lot together and bringing the trucks so close to where we live and work!  Many of these trucks would not come out this way otherwise.

Also, the environment is great!  The setting is very inviting with plenty of room to see all of the trucks, tables and chairs for comfortable dining, and even live music.

I’m a fan of food truck festivals and having so many trucks to choose from in a relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere is like having our very own festival each week.

Again, thanks for bringing us the trucks!

    As for getting trucks at the GBI, I’ll see if some will roll out….but driving from LA to ATL might drive prices up. 🙂
