TIMBERS LAUNCH NEW FOOD CART ALLIANCE OFFERINGS SUNDAY
Popular Portland food carts to join match-day experience at JELD-WEN Field
PORTLAND, Ore. – Popular Portland food carts will join in on the Portland Timbers match-day experience at JELD-WEN Field starting Sunday, as the club is set to feature select food carts affiliated with the new Portland Timbers Food Cart Alliance (PTFCA) at remaining regular-season home games.
Determined by a fan vote, Hawaiian food cart 808 Grinds is the first of four featured PTFCA food carts to serve its items and will be on hand Sunday at JELD-WEN Field as the Timbers play host to FC Dallas at 4 p.m. (Pacific).
The other PTFCA carts voted to prepare their specialties at upcoming Timbers matches are The Frying Scotsman (Aug. 25), Pepper Box (Aug. 31) and Big-Ass Sandwiches (Sept. 15). Each food cart will offer a selection of their specialty items at the Soccer City Grill concession stand on the east side of the stadium.
Launched in July, the PTFCA is free to join and will be accepting new food carts into the program through the remainder of the season. The Timbers will conduct another fan vote in early September to determine the final two PTFCA carts to serve at the stadium this season. Click here for a list of PTFCA members.
The PTFCA is a free, cross-promotion program open to all Portland-area food cart operators, designed to highlight the Rose City’s vibrant food cart culture. The alliance offers affiliated food carts joint social media and grassroots promotional opportunities as well as the chance to create official Timbers-themed signature food items. Additionally, PTFCA members offer exclusive discounts to Timbers Axe Society members.
Additional information on the PTFCA and registration information is available at www.portlandtimbers.com/ptfca.
