Food trucks sell out twice in opening night

DIANNE and Max Sainty relocated to the southwest a week ago, 15 years happily married they decided to spend their first date in Roma at Food Truck Friday.

It was the official opening for the food truck initiative with more than 350 locals turning out for some grub.

The line-up included Cafe 54, Indian on Wheels, Wendy's Pies, Bessie's and Surat RSL.

During the winter months, the group decided to change the day to Saturdays.

Mr Sainty said it provided for a lovely evening and that you couldn't go past the baked potato.

"We just moved down from Townsville and we went for a bicycle ride in the afternoon and thought 'what a better way to finish off the day',” Mr Sainty said.

"I think putting it on Saturdays was a good idea because you don't have to rush home from work on Friday to get here.”
