Food trucks on campus that leverage student ID card integration opens a new opportunity for dining services to align with the latest in dining trends and fold in new service capabilities. It’s an opportunity that Duke University and Ohio University have both pursued with impressive results.

This podcast is just a short preview for Duke and Ohio's full food truck stories. I had the pleasure of participating in the “Supporting Student ID Card Payments at Food Trucks” webinar on behalf of CR80News, and learned first hand of each campuses are impressive food truck operation.

In the podcast, leaders from the two universities highlight why they launched food trucks and how the campus card plays a key role:

  • Duke University’s uses food trucks to add variety to its food service operations, while enabling its students to use their campus cards for payment. Learn about their focus on strong merchant relationships and the decision to partner with local, respected merchants that Duke students have grown to love.
  • Ohio University initially deployed food trucks on campus to navigate a tricky period when a dining facility was unavailable due to renovations. Hear how they used strategically placed food trucks to fill the gap in service, integrated campus card payments, and transitioned trucks to full-time deployment.
