Food Truck Thursdays at Prewett Park, beginning June 15

Wednesday, June 14th, 2017

On June 15, 2017, the City of Antioch will present a first of its kind Foodie Crew’s Food Truck Thursdays at the Antioch Community Center and Antioch Water Park parking lot at Prewett Park. Seven trucks have been confirmed for this event. The lineup features five food trucks, one dessert truck, and one beer and wine truck. Expect a variety of gourmet food coming to Antioch’s southeast area. This event is scheduled to take place every Thursday night from 5:00-9:00 p.m. through the end of September — possibly through the end of October 2017. In addition to the food trucks, the event will have music and two Jumbo Jenga games to enjoy. In the coming weeks, a corn hole game and other family friendly activities will be added.

After seeing and experiencing successful food truck events throughout the Bay Area, United Bites Food Truck owner and local Antioch resident, Adam Gross, approached City staff with a vision of bringing a food truck event into his town. He selected the Antioch Community Center and Antioch Water Park parking lot for its visibility to the many southeast residents that travel Lone Tree Way. Adam planned logistics and coordinated details with City staff to make sure the event launches successfully.

If you are interested in being a non-food vendor or having your Food Truck or Dessert Truck at this event, please email: info@foodiecrew.com. Sponsored in part by the City of Antioch Recreation Department.

According to Antioch’s Economic Development Program Manager, Lizeht Zepeda, the negotiations between the City of Antioch and Oakland-based Everett & Jones BBQ for the lease of the former Humphrey’s location have been terminated. However, city staff will continue to pursue other restaurants for the site.

The official statement reads as follows:

“After over a year of good faith negotiations, Antioch’s City Council directed staff to terminate all negotiations with Everett & Jones BBQ regarding the renovation and leasing of the former Humphrey’s restaurant building. The City Council also directed staff to begin remarketing the restaurant site.

Since terminating negotiations with Everett and Jones, the City has seen interest in the restaurant site and has toured the property with two successful Bay Area restaurant owners.  Both restaurant owners are interested in expanding their current operations to this site and are now doing their due diligence on improvement costs associated with their renovation plans.

The site is currently being featured in the Real Estate Section of the San Francisco Chronicle and on the City’s website.”

Humphrey’s on the Delta closed on December 24, 2012. An Antioch businessman bought the building in 2013 but, later let it go.  The City has always owned the land and acquired the building in 2014 on quiet title at no cost. (See related articles, here and here).
