Let's talk campus food trucks

FREE webinar details food trucks on Duke, Ohio U. campuses

Despite much of the campus card landscape having already been discovered, there's still the odd opportunity for card programs to chart new territories. One of the more recent examples we've identified in our coverage is the emergence of campus food trucks at colleges and universities.

Campuses nationwide are embracing the food truck, and all signs point to the good for these mobile eateries to seamlessly slot into a university's existing food service operation. Food truck deployments are solving a wide variety of campus challenges, boosting universities' town-and-gown relationships and introducing new dining variety to the campus community.

Equally interesting, though, is how campuses are choosing to navigate the payment process at their newly established, mobile diners. Sure, cash and standard debit/credit card payments are common, but an increasing number of institutions are integrating their campus card system and the student ID at the food truck till. It's a trend that has many university food service operators salivating.

ID card integration at the campus food truck represents a new opportunity for university dining services to revamp or simply fold in new service capabilities. It's an opportunity that Duke University and Ohio University have both leveraged to great effect. And now you can hear about these projects and how they were executed straight from the source, as representatives from both institutions delve into the details of their campus food truck rollouts.

Together with CR80News and Blackboard Transact, the "Supporting Student ID Card Payments at Food Trucks" webinar details:

  • Duke University's use of food trucks to add variety to its food service operations, while enabling its students to use their campus cards for payment. Also key to the deployment at Duke is a focus on strong merchant relationships and the decision to partner with local, well-respected merchants that Duke students have grown to love.
  • Ohio University's use of the trucks to navigate a tricky period when a dining facility was unavailable due to renovations. Hear how Ohio used strategically placed food trucks to fill the gap in service and integrated campus card payments.

Campus food trucks are only growing in popularity and if it hasn't been an internal topic of discussion in your office already, it likely will be soon. The "Supporting Student ID Card Payments at Food Trucks" webinar represents a great resource for the food truck discussion and is packed with valuable info on how to deploy and execute a food truck program on any campus. In addition to hearing how two universities have deployed food trucks with significant success, you'll also learn the six key reasons that campuses across the country are turning to food trucks as a means breathe new life into student dining. Check it out.
