BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- People hoping for a regular food truck presence in Bowling Green could be left wanting.
The southern Kentucky city of about 60,000 people doesn't have any regular food trucks patrolling the town.
Western Kentucky University professor of hotel, restaurant and tourism management Rich Patterson says there just are not enough opportunities in the city to keep a food truck financially viable.
A food truck needs places where people congregate regularly in order to make sales. Unlike Murfreesboro, Tennessee, or Nashville, Tennessee, Patterson says, the city lacks such a place.
That said, there are several Bowling Green restaurants that have food trucks or trailers that they take to events and festivals, and one Bowling Green man has a mobile hot dog cart.
