Hub Food Trucks shares some juicy news from a recent meeting of the Boston Food Truck Alliance, saying Kendall Square favorite Area Four will be launching its very own food truck. Meanwhile, two food trucks might do the reverse and open their own brick and mortars. The Boston Business Journal reports that Roxy's Grilled Cheese and Mei Mei Street Kitchen both "have indicated that they are in the process of opening full-service restaurants." Hub Food Trucks also has the results of the most recent food truck lottery, determining which Boston food trucks will get to serve in which prime spots this spring. A whopping 16 new trucks that have never served in Boston before entered the lottery, plus new spots for food trucks to serve will soon go into effect.
