The Vance-Granville Community College Mobile Food Truck Entrepreneurship program will participate in a Food Truck Rodeo being held in conjunction with the “Family and Friends Celebration” sponsored by radio station WARR 1520 AM in Warrenton.
WARR’s event is scheduled for Saturday, April 2, from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., at the Warren County Recreation Center (840 U.S. Highway 158 Bypass, Warrenton). The public is invited.
The “rodeo” comes just days after VGCC wraps up its training program, a series of four workshops held at the college’s Warren County Campus. The program, unique in North Carolina, is a partnership of VGCC’s Small Business Center and Personal Enrichment department. Students who have completed the series will attend the rodeo as part of their learning experience.
Queen Harris, co-owner/operator of Chick-n-Que, has served as the instructor for the workshops. Harris and her husband have been operating a food truck for more than six years and recently also opened a restaurant. Through the VGCC series, Harris helped guide participants through the steps of planning, starting and maintaining a food truck or food cart business.
Chick-n-Que and Ladybug’s Treats (specializing in homemade desserts) are among the food trucks that are scheduled to be featured on April 2.
In addition to the food truck rodeo, the WARR celebration is set to include live music, games, other vendors and activities for the entire family.
