By the end of the spring semester 2012, Tex's Tacos was joined by Slider U, Kona Ice and Momma Goldberg's food trucks.
Wells said Auburn determines which trucks to bring to campus based on the product offered and the potential for success on the campus.
"It really depends on what kind of product the food truck offers and what kind of commitment they can make," Wells said. "We are open to any and all ideas, and they can come to campus and have a meeting with us."
Wells said a major factor is the truck owner's ability to commit to remaining local. She said many drivers wanted to split their time between Auburn and the popular food truck park in Atlanta, but that they have more success when they can remain in Auburn.
Several new food trucks have been spotted on campus this school year, including Munch Food Truck, Mighty Meatballs, Honeysuckle Gelato and Mac the Cheese.
Wells said the trucks move locations regularly to accommodate as many students as possible and create a balanced schedule and traffic pattern on the concourse. Some, like Kona Ice and Honeysuckle Gelato, make appearances seasonally or depending on the weather.
"I love Kona Ice," said Cheyenne Rudowski, a junior in art history. "And the gelato too; you just can't beat that when it's a hot Alabama day."
Wells said Auburn is open to bringing more food trucks in the near future.
"We don't have anything confirmed, but we are always looking for new ideas," she said. "If anyone has any, we are very open to hearing them out."
"I think the food trucks are here to stay," Rudowski said. "As long as that's where students can get the best food, that's where they'll go."
