The Marriott International launched its maiden food truck in India and it has hit the roads on the first week of April. The food truck which started its epic journey from Mumbai would tour six major Indian cities.
Marriott’s signature dishes and the local delicacies, whipped up at the Marriott properties in the respective cities, would be served at the food truck. The food truck was flagged off at Mumbai by Marriott International Asia Pacific President and Managing Director Craig Smith, Marriot International South Asia Vice President Neeraj Govil and Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan.
The food truck would be covering a distance of around 6761 kilometers in 40 days and would tour cities like Ahmedabad, Amritsar, Lucknow, Pune, Madurai and Kochi. Through this initiative, the Marriott International Incorporated aims to manifest on the F & B strength of its select serve brands like Courtyard by Marriot, Fairfield by Marriott, Four Points By Sheraton and Aloft Hotels.
The Marriott on Wheels would spend two days in each city, stationing at some of the most popular hubs. At Ahmedabad, the food truck would be stationed at the Food Truck Park, while foodies can throng the Sahara Market Plaza in Lucknow and Info Park in Kochi to enjoy delicious food from it. An executive chef from a Marriott property would be on board, serving a limited time menu, specially prepared for the food truck. Some of the dishes included in the menu are mutton tikka quesadillas which would be served at Amritsar, Karaikudi chicken wings in Madurai and Kosha Mangsho kathi rolls in Pune to name a few.
Marriott International Incorporated South Asia Vice President Neeraj Govil said that they were proud to launch Marriot’s first ever mobile food truck in the country. He said, “Over the years, Marriot Internation Inc. has amplified its dominance in the F & B space with the help of chefs who have tremendous experience and skill. With culinary experiences driving the focus for Marriot this year, the launch of Marriott on Wheels is yet another initiative that showcases our strength and leadership in the F & B industry.”
As part of Marriott’s commitment of reducing environmental impacts, eco-friendly items such as containers made with bagasse and glass water bottles would be used on the Marriott on Wheels. This will be implemented not only in Mumbai but also in all the cities where the food truck would be stationed.
The Marriott on Wheels would be in Kochi on 5 and 6 May.
