San Diego Food Truck Frenzy

Brian Boulais has been closely following trucks in San Diego for a few years now. Food trucks, that is. First at La Mirage, then Vantage Pointe and soon-to-be at Deerwood Apartments, he’s been leading the pack to get quality food trucks at his properties.

“It doesn’t cost a dime, the trucks love it and the residents love it – it’s win-win,” Brian says. After starting out with a few trucks once a month, the Vantage Pointe program now invites around eight trucks to come by twice a week. “The residents walk downstairs and there’s a restaurant waiting for them,” he says.
