South University Area Association

People looking for something to eat in Ann Arbor's South University Area are getting some more options thanks to a new food truck program.  Eat the Street is the new program that's a partnership between the South University Area Association and Eat the Hub. 

Alex Perlman is with Eat the Hub and owns two food carts.  Perlman says they hope the former Pinball Pete's site at 1215 South University will be a successful location for food carts.  He says they have done some basic landscaping and worked with the Health Department on prepping the site for food carts.  He says hopefully the mix of food will attract both students and some Ann Arbor residents that don't typically come to the South U area. 

The carts are expected to last in this location until April when the site will be used for something else.  A mix of food carts including Indian, Grilled Cheese, Healthy California inspired, and other options are coming to Ann Arbor's South University area.

  Officials with Ann Arbor's South University Area Association hope a successful program in the Main Street area can be replicated in their part of town. WEMU's Andrew Cluley provides the details.
