Food Truck Industry in the Fayetteville Area: What’s Next?

Although the total number remains about the same, about a quarter of the licensed food trucks that operated around Fayetteville last year no longer serve the area.

Some packed up and moved to other cities in North Carolina. A few of them closed their application windows without any explanation. Others said they could not run their operations.

At least one cited high food and supply costs.

An April post on The Grazing Buffalo Facebook page announced the closure of the food truck in Fayetteville.

“It was a big decision for us, but when it came down to it, we didn’t want to pay the increase in food, supplies, etc. to our customers,” the post read in part.

Mike Adams, who owns the Dogslingers hot dog stand with his wife, Jane, said the rising costs of food and supplies are “overwhelming” for many food truck owners.

Every sausage, hot dog and Italian beef sandwich the cart serves is wrapped in aluminum foil, the cost of which has doubled since 2020, Adams said.
