Why it's a great idea:
Just like how Facebook revolutionised Social Media, Street Food is revolutionising the way to eat and meet. A new concept that has taken the capital by storm is now making waves throughout the UK. We want Leicester to be at the forefront if not the home of Street Food. This is a great idea as it will give Leicester people an alternative place to meet, eat and drink in an environment that is accommodating to families from all generations and in an atmosphere that is relaxed yet upbeat and entertaining. The Park will develop and rejuvenate unused land, creating a attractive space, employment and will boost the local economy. The Park will also give local communities the opportunity to sample Word Cuisine as well as showcase there own culinary delights, uniting communities and encouraging community cohesion.
Steps to get it done:
- The Street Food concept is revolutionising the way people are choosing to eat and socialise within the UK. - Street Food itself is gaining recognition within the Hospitality Industry with Awards and Competitions being held Nationally and Internationally for 'The Best Street Food traders'. Leicester has authentic World foods already but now needs to really push itself forward by becoming a pioneer and visionary in the Street Food scene. - At present there are purpose built Street Food venues in and around London and these are growing in numbers and in popularity - Birmingham now has 3 Street Food venues due to the increase in trend. - Leicester has amazing food outlets and districts (Curry Mile) however we currently do not offer a Street Food scene even though we are a City of Food lovers.
