SAN FRANCISCO—The grand opening of Spark Social SF was held on Saturday, June 25, in the Mission Bay neighborhood, according to the SF Gate. The entrance of the 16,000 square foot food truck park is a stripped down and re-purposed double decker bus that is now a hangout area.
Around 2,000 people came to Spark throughout the day to enjoy the festivities, owner Carlos Muela told San Francisco News in an email, with live music, complimentary champagne and complimentary s’mores at any of the four fire pits inside Spark.
Spark was developed by the SoMa StrEat Food Park team and is the second endeavor to help build the Mission Bay community and cultivate social spaces around street food, according to the Spark webpage. The park works with small business and has 150 food trucks from the Bay Area that rotate daily for lunch and dinner.
“First and foremost just a great community gathering space for the people that live and work in the neighborhood,” Muela told San Francisco News. “We also plan on hosting a lot of really fun events like themed happy hours, movie nights in the soccer field and food/drink festivals! “
LMNOP Design, who specializes in branded environments and public spaces, designed and built Spark. Spark is not only a food truck park, but also has a beer/sangria garden and event space that can be used to host parties and get togethers.
When asked has business still been busy since the grand opening, Muela told San Francisco News, “Yes! both lunch and dinner 7 days a week has been consistently busy! Week day lunch we get a lot of the people that work in the Mission Bay neighborhood and at night we get a lot of the residents in the neighborhood including lots of families and young professionals etc. “
Spark is located at 610 Mission Bay Boulevard and is open seven days a week. For more information on Spark and a look at some menus visit www.sparksocialsf.com.
