TFCU Hosts Summer “Food Truck Fridays”
June 3, 2016
Hauppauge, N.Y., June 3, 2016 – Teachers Federal Credit Union (TFCU), one of the country’s largest credit unions, is hosting “Food Truck Fridays” during the summer of 2016. Food service trucks will offer a diverse and changing variety of lunch and dessert options for TFCU employees and local businesspeople. Trucks will be at TFCU’s Headquarters located at 102 Motor Parkway, Hauppauge, NY. A minimum of two and as many as four trucks will be set up in the southeast corner of the front parking lot of the facility. Lunch and desserts will be offered between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
“Summer is an ideal season for our employees and businesspeople from the surrounding area to come and have their lunch breaks outside of our headquarters. Everyone can enjoy the fresh air rather than spend time driving to restaurants or waiting on long lines for takeout. This is a convenience for our employees and the local business community. This program is also supporting small business entrepreneurial food truck owners who are creating jobs and providing a needed service,” said Robert G. Allen, TFCU President/CEO.
“The ‘Food Truck Fridays’ program fits the Hauppauge area perfectly. This area has limited food options and TFCU employees and others have to travel long distances and take a lot of time to get lunch. Having healthy and quality food choices easily accessible allows employees to save time and enjoy the summer as well,” said Michelle Panciarello, owner of the Eat Me, Drink Me food service truck.
The Eat Me, Drink Me food service truck specializes in grass-fed beef burgers, artisanal grilled cheese sandwiches, hand cut fries and they also offer vegan and vegetarian options. Other food trucks that will be part of “Food Truck Fridays” at TFCU will include Chiddy's Cheesesteaks, Roxy’s Ice Cream and Blondie’s Bake Shop, which features sandwiches and sweets. Most of the food trucks offer a “text-to-order” option where lunch can be pre-ordered. Phone numbers are available at each truck’s website: www.eatmedrinkmetruck.com, www.chiddys.com, www.roxysicecreamtruck.com and www.blondiesbakeshop.com.
