The all-new Mission Food Park hosted its grand opening this past weekend and is looking forward to serving the community. Mission Food Park, powered by the Mission EDC, is located at the CEED building on Bryan Road and U.S. Business 83. The site is the permanent location of Jitterz coffee bar and local brewery 5x5 Brewing Co., which will be operating during the food park hours. The food park will host a variety of food trucks including Queenie, Motoramen, Sahadi’s, and Pineapple Ninjaz.
“Our local small businesses need help now more than ever, and we’re happy to facilitate this for the community,” said Daniel Silva, CEO of the Mission EDC. “A food park in Mission has been a long-held goal for the Mission EDC and we’re very excited to see it finally come to life. We’ve got a lot of great things in store for visitors this fall.”
The food park will be open weekly Thursday through Sunday. Thursday will be from 4 to 10 p.m., Friday 4 p.m. to 12 a.m., Saturday 2 p.m. to 12 a.m. and Sundays will be open from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Hours and regular updates of vendors will be on their Facebook page, www.facebook.com/MissionFoodPark, and website, www.missionfoodpark.com/.
Current CDC recommendations advise socializing outdoors to minimize the spread of COVID-19. Mission Food Park has open-air seating and a variety of safety measures in place to maintain social distancing. “Safety is always a priority, especially during times like these,” said Silva. “We’re confident this outdoor space can accommodate Mission residents and their families comfortably. We’ll be taking all of the necessary precautions to ensure a safe event for everyone.”
Mission’s CEED (Center for Education and Economic Development) is a dedicated coworking space for small businesses, remote workers, non-profits, and a variety of other organizations. From locally brewed coffee to phone booths, conference rooms, and thousands of square feet of open workspace, the CEED is ideal for promoting Mission’s growing business landscape. Memberships are available on a monthly basis.
