Disclosure – the two reporters who filed this Maribyrnong/Hobsons Bay Weekly story about food trucks in the west are colleagues of mine; I am quoted in the story and the newspaper has used a photograph provided by CTS.
But I confess to being bemused by the comments in the story by the spokeswomen for both the Altona Village Traders Association and the Williamstown Chamber of Commerce.
Of course, it is the job of such groups to promote and protect the businesses they represent.
But the idea of “running food trucks out of the town” seems a little, um, confrontational.
There are places we like to eat in and shop at in both Williamstown and Altona. We will discover more.
But I can only go with what numerous residents and readers from both suburbs have told me in the years CTS has been operating – that while there is plenty of choice, people in general think there is much that is “average”, over-priced or both.
So Altona and Williamstown readers, what do you think … food trucks, do you want them?
