UM's new food truck offers variety, accessibility
The brand new, state of the art food truck cost dining services $160,000.
That’s $90,000 less than it would have cost to upgrade the already existing Missoula College west campus concession stand.
Dining services switched to a food truck to meet two needs.
The mobility of the truck makes it possible to service both the Missoula college west campus and the university of Montana main campus. It also creates versatility of food choices.
The Galloping Griz offers traditional American fare for breakfast and lunch at west campus. But at night, the truck transforms into a burrito bar serving $1.50 tacos and other products on their own handmade tortillas at the UM campus on the south side of the Lommasson Center.
The truck is open from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Missoula College west campus. It then drives across town to the University of Montana and serves street taco style food from 8:30 p.m. to midnight.
They accept cash, check, credit and debit. They also recognize UMoney and premium plus dining plans.
