We are located on the Southeast corner of W. Broad St and Hollywood Drive North at the Haydocy & Broad Gourmet Food Park near Hollywood Casino and Haydocy Buick GMC, which is also managed by Brian and Will. “We are currently constructing the food park in stages and hope to have it complete inside of 18 months. The park will be complete with a stage for live entertainment made from another Airstream, a shelter, locally made picnic tables, and a steady rotation of the best food truck operators in the Columbus Ohio area!
It will be like a food truck festival everyday!! ….and did I mention we’re pet and family friendly!” says Brian Young, General Manager of the project. “For too long the West side has been deprived of high quality restaurants and we see this as a huge step towards the revitalization of the area. For years the demand for new restaurants has been here and none moved in so we decided to grab the bull by the horns and lead the way to develop a cool and fun concept to bring good eats here, to the west side!
We are modeling our concept on successful and dynamic food parks, such as SOMA Streat food park in San Francisco, The Truck Yard in Dallas, and Boardwalk on Bulverde in Austin. It’s about time that something like this comes to Columbus and we plan on being the food truck capital of Ohio right here at Haydocy and Broad Gourmet Food Park!” Say’s Chris Haydocy.
“The development in the area has been slow moving over the past couple of years and we now see things happening, there’s a bike hub getting built that will host modern-urban camping on the Ohio to Erie Bike Trail, the plans for a RV park to be built nearby, and the expansion at the casino to build a hotel are just a few of the things beginning in the near future, which are great signs towards the growth of the west side,” he said.
