March 23—Oxedos Street Grub is the new food truck that rolled into Assumption College, in Worcester, Mass., last week.
Run by Sodexo, the food service provider to Assumption College, the truck will be parked on campus several times a month, according to Linda Davey, Sodexo’s Marketing Manager.
Oxedos, (Sodexo spelled backward), offered Assumption students and faculty an eclectic lunch menu during its first run. Items included an “All-American Grilled Cheese,” “Beantown Grilled Cheese,” “South End Fenway Frank” and a “Korean BBQ,” an Asian-style wrap sandwich that featured pulled pork.
Davey described the food truck craze as “the grownup version of the ice cream truck.” Food trucks are fast and convenient, offering food that students can eat on the go, she said.
Sodexo’s future plans at Assumption include making the food truck available for dinner and even late night dining, according to Davey. “Right now, we only serve lunch, but we will expand hours,” Davey said. “We were happy with the students’ response last week.”
