Construction on a new food truck park called Leander Trucking Co. began July 15 at 1500 S. Bagdad Road, Leander.
The 1-acre development will feature four or five food trucks; a bar serving a variety of beer, wine and seltzers; and a pavilion. Additionally, owners Wade and Jack Funk said they hope to include a playscape for children, but they are in process of getting approval for that from the city.
The food trucks that will be at the park include Jack Funk’s Texana Barbecue, a hot dog truck, a taco truck, and a coffee and dessert truck.
Leander Trucking Co. will be family-friendly, and will have live music and TVs broadcasting sporting events.
The Funk brothers are developing and financing the food truck park. Wade and Jack grew up in Georgetown and are supportive of growth in Leander.
“I’m a huge proponent of Leander, and we need so much stuff in Leander,” Wade Funk said. “We determined this was a great location, because there’s such a lack of services in the area for food and drink.”
Leander Trucking Co. is anticipated to open in October. It will have a “no frills, just chills” environment, Jack Funk said.
“We’re looking for an atmosphere where people can come out and have a casual experience with family,” he said.
