Rutgers Grease Trucks Moving - My9 New Jersey

Rutgers Grease Trucks Moving

Posted: Updated:
New Brunswick, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

The infamous grease trucks that have been selling sandwiches at Rutgers since the 1980 are on the move.

Thursday is the last day for these trucks to reside by campus in Lot 8 on College Avenue.  They are being forced to move to make way for more student housing.

After devouring his 1,7000 calories "Fat Darryl" sandwich, Hank Flynn had time to sit down and talk with "RU Hungry" truck owner about the move.  The truck owner said there was some confusion about the move but Rutgers University students will continue to get their share of calories from the so-called "fat" sandwiches sold by grease trucks when the school year begins in September.

The food vendors have reached an agreement in principle to relocate now that student housing constriction has displaced them from Lot 8 on College Avenue in New Brunswick.

They won't be permitted to permanently park at the sites and must operate between 7 a.m. and 2 a.m. daily.

Rutgers spokesman E.J. Miranda tells The Home News Tribune the food operators will be charged a $1,000 permit fee each semester. That's less than the $750 per-month rent they were charged to use Lot 8.
