University of Washington Entrepreneur Week to feature food truck owners

Jennifer Lewis of SmallFoodBiz.com will lead a panel discussion with food truck entrepreneurs Molly Neitzel (Molly Moon’s), Josh Henderson (Skillet), and Marshall Jett (Veraci Pizza) at the University of Washington on October 17 from 12:30-1:30 pm. The talk is part of the UW’s Entrepreneur Week presented by the Foster School of Business. Food trucks will be open for business from 11 am – 2 pm on the Business Hall Promenade. The event is free and open to all UW students, faculty, staff, alumni and the Seattle entrepreneurial community. (So, basically, anyone.) Get more details on the Entrepreneur Week website.

Here’s a video featuring Skillet that I shot on the fly for grad school. My classmates and I asked vendors at the Mobile Chowdown food truck festival how they use social media to promote their businesses. This video was made in 2010, and I’m struck by: 1) how “new” social media still seemed then, and 2) how big the Skillet empire has become in just two years.

Mobile Chowdown October 10

This Saturday brings another take on “meals on wheels.” Seattle street-food vendors, Skillet, Parfait Ice Cream, Marination Mobile, Maximus Minimus, Gert’s BBQ, El Camion and Dante’s Inferno Dogs are converging in a parking lot October 10 for the Mobile Chowdown.

The event will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in a vacant parking lot in Interbay at 1616 W. Bertona. Follow @mobilechowdown on Twitter for more info and for a chance to win some great prizes.

On Seattle Metblogs, I saw that the Seattle Zombie Walk is also taking place this Saturday. I’m thinking it would be all kinds of awesome if this event could somehow converge with the Mobile Chowdown.
