Local food truck owner starts a rotating food truck stop in Hilltop

HILLTOP, WV (WOAY) – Jeanne Young owns the Big Lebowlski, a food truck you will most often find at Green Acres Campground on Legends Highway in the Hilltop/Oak Hill area.

However, Young now is also using the property across the street to service local food trucks as a rotating stop she is calling the Hilltop Truck Stop.

She asks that trucks pay a $25 donation per day to help cover costs and hopes this will provide local food trucks another place to get themselves out there now that most festivals have been canceled. There is already hookups for power and water. 

“With festivals, you’re taking your generator with you and lugging all this stuff, and so this gives food trucks an opportunity to relax a little and plug up for a few days and give the area what they need, some variety of good foods,” Young said. 

For the first week, Riverchick Farm Food Truck has been using the spot, and you can head over to the Hilltop Truck Stop Facebook page to see what trucks will come next. This is also a good way to get in touch with them if you are interested in getting in on the rotation.

Young says the goal is to use the space to not only service food trucks but also some small pop-up shops as well and eventually open up the small building on the property to turn it into a general store.
