(July 29, 2010) … Minnesota Turkey Growers Association (MTGA), owner of the Turkey To Go Concession at the Minnesota State Fair, is pleased to announce the opening of a Turkey To Go mobile food trailer on the streets of Minneapolis.

Best known for its “Giant Juicy Turkey Sandwich,” the Turkey To Go mobile food trailer will be operating the first week in August, according to Steve Olson, MTGA Executive Director. “Our target opening date is August 3. This is a new venture for Turkey To Go, and we’re excited to be dishing up our tasty turkey along with the addition of some new sweet treats.”

Customers can satisfy their craving for our turkey sandwich at one of two downtown Minneapolis locations:

  • Corner of South 8th Street and Nicollet Mall
  • Corner of South 6th Street and Hennepin Avenue

The mobile trailer will typically be at the 8th and Nicollet location during the lunch rush and move to South 6th Street and Hennepin in the evening.

Turkey To Go’s mobile locations will be listed on www.minnesotaturkey.com and also available on Twitter – simply follow @TurkeyToGo to find out exactly when and where the mobile food unit will be.

The mobile Turkey To Go will be offering the same Minnesota grown items as served at the State Fair, including the Giant Juicy Turkey Sandwich, Marinated Turkey Drumsticks (available in various flavors) and lemonade with fresh raspberries and lime. In addition to these signature items, the mobile trailer will be offering build-your-own ice cream sandwiches.

“The ice cream and cookies are made from scratch locally and are a delicious addition to our menu options,” said Drew Levin of Turkey To Go.

The mobile food trailer was made possible after the Minneapolis City Council passed an ordinance in April allowing the operation of licensed food carts.
