The FeedLot opens without a hitch

Azle City Council holds inaugural ribbon cutting for new food truck park


AZLE — After a last-minute push Wednesday, Azle’s new food truck park, The FeedLot, is open for business.

During its debut Friday, the site ran out of parking before its 5 p.m. opening time, with cars lining up down Church Street and in the nearby First Methodist Church Azle parking lot.

“We’re real thrilled with the community response to it,” Community and Marketing Specialist Kristen Pegues said. “It feels great to have this project completed. The city council has been anticipating this getting done and so have we. It’s been great to bring their vision to reality and we’re really happy with the way it turned out.”

Mayor Pro Tem Randa Goode said she was beyond excited to see the park come to fruition. The idea for a food truck park began when Goode brough the proposal up in an Azle City Council meeting last spring.

“I grew up in Azle and we never had a place to just hang out,” Goode said. “I feel like this will be it. The whole vibe of it is a place where people can come and hang out. Just think of the variety of food and the atmosphere. I love that this is here in Azle. I’m happy to have been a part of it. Just seeing this, you can tell it’s something the community has needed for a long time.”

The FeedLot is located on 225 Church Street and will be open Friday evenings from 5-9 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3p.m. and again 5-9 p.m.
