“Downtown San Mateo is the geographic center of the Peninsula, and an authentic urban experience. We are public transit accessible and walkable. We chose to partner with Off the Grid in creating an innovative community space because of their forward-thinking track record in engaging with merchants on these projects. We are looking forward to bringing even more activity to the Downtown.” said Downtown San Mateo Association Executive Director Rob Edwards.
Jaime Turri: “They were overjoyed because many reside here yet travel to San Francisco to attend this event. The fact is, the food trucks are coming to the Peninsula and San Mateo will be at the top of this nationwide trend. For once, the leaders in our community saw the opportunity and jumped at it. Instead of passing us by for San Carlos or Redwood City, it is landing here — and we are on top. ”
