Creole Kitchen is scheduled to open Monday and Za Pizza and Shuga’s Portable are set to open next month in the former service station at East Platte and North Nevada avenues. John Olson, chair of Colorado Springs Urban Intervention, sponsor of Curbside Cuisine, sadi the group hopes to have eight trucks operating by the grand opening in June. “It is still a work in progress,” he said.

Curbside Cuisine will operate 6:30 a.ml. to 8 p.m. daily with vendors selling meals priced between $5 and $8. To read more about Curbside Cuisine, read my previous story on the organization.
