Local Family Takes Food Trucking Business to the Water

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, WA - We've all heard of food trucks, but what about a food boat? Floating Foodies is Tri-Cities only floating catering company.

Joanna and Terry Wilson run the business with their three boys at Columbia Park West Marina in Richland. The menu is a twist on traditional American food including hot dogs, pulled pork and hamburgers.

The Wilsons say business has been great since opening almost two years ago. They used to take the boat up and down the river, but recently decided to dock at the marina so people know where they are located.

"We get to be able to be on the ricer--beautiful scenery. we get to be with our family, and we're able to share our flavors and spices of life with the Columbia River patrons," said Wilson.

Floating Foodies is docked at Columbia Park West Marina in Richland, every Saturday and Sunday. Their hours are from 11:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m., or until the food runs out.

Check out their menu here.
