Food Trucks Coming to Baton Rouge Metro Airport
Jun 18, 2021Baton Rouge, LA – Food truck service will be available at the Baton Rouge Metro Airport (BTR) beginning this Saturday, April 17, 2021 from 11:00am – 3:00pm. The trucks will be stationed at the BTR Airport Cell Phone Lot, which is a parking area provided for drivers waiting to pick up arriving passengers.
The food trucks will include Taylor Made Concessions, Capital Seafood, and Smoke Bayou. The Cell Phone Lot is located on Veterans Memorial Blvd. at the end of Runway 4 Left, which is several hundred yards before the airport entrance. The food trucks plan to operate daily, but exact hours will be determined by demand. Vendors will vary by the day of week.
Taylor Made Concessions will serve breakfast and lunch with waffles and chicken as its specialties; Capital Seafood will offer fried fish and shrimp among other options; and Smoke Bayou’s menu will include BBQ ribs, chicken and turkey wings.
While the primary purpose of the BTR Cell Phone Lot is for drivers waiting to pick up arriving passengers, it also provides great views for those interested in watching aircraft takeoff and land.
The Baton Rouge Metro Airport is the second largest airport in Louisiana by passenger volume and is served by the major, network airlines – American, Delta and United – with frequent hub flights that provide access to destinations worldwide. The airport provides an annual economic impact of $1.1 billion and over 4500 direct and indirect jobs in the Baton Rouge area. The Airport is administered as an Enterprise Fund, generating its own revenues for operations as opposed to using local tax funds.
