Lincolnshire Food Truck Fridays, which is held every other Friday this summer is an extremely hot commodity. The event is sponsored by the Village  of Lincolnshire and Van Vlissingen and Co.

This Lincolnshire outdoor eating event is located in Corporate Center’s parking lot, which is located in the southwest corner of Milwaukee Avenue and Knightsbridge.

With an abundance of commuters working in Lincolnshire’s Corporate Center, office workers come flocking to the scene ready to devour some splendid bites from the Food Trucks.

The food trucks featured at the site included Toasty Cheese from Schaumburg, Grill Chasers, Louie B. Fresh, Best Truckin’ BBQ, Daniel’s Raw – Paleo, Mario’s Cart 17 and Frost Gelato. {Editor’s Note: To learn more about some of these vendors read our Food Trucks in the ‘Burbs post.}

Visit Lake County’s Director of Marketing,  Anthony Haag, spoke with Village of Lincolnshire Mayor Elizabeth Brandt about the history behind the festive Fridays.

“We started with Food Trucks in Lincolnshire at our Taste of Lincolnshire,” Brand said. “ It was so successful we decided to create a Food Trucks Friday event every other Friday. Lincolnshire is kind of a unique community because we have 7,500 residents but we have a day population of 30,000 workers coming into work in the corporate center. Today I’m seeing Lincolnshire residents, Stevenson students, so I think it’s a fun concept for everyone rain or shine.”

The gourmet lunch will occur  July 24, August 7 and August 21. The July 24 location will change to Village Green Center (Northeast corner of Milwaukee Avenue and Olde Half Day Road) for the Taste of Lincolnshire.
