Jacksonville couple plans food truck park on Main St. in Springfield

A search for a place to park their 20-foot New Orleans trolley led a Jacksonville couple to establish a family-friendly food truck park in historic Springfield.

Cherron Johnson and her husband, Hector Zayas Sr., hope to open Main Street Food Park on Oct. 9 at an old used-car lot at 1352 N. Main St. near Fourth Street that they are renovating.

“We want to create a family of truckies that we can support and all benefit from making money,” Johnson said of the food park.

The couple owns and operates NOLA’s Snoballs, Sweets & Savory Eats — an authentic retired New Orleans streetcar that’s been converted into a food truck.

An extension of their snoball business, the park also is an opportunity to serve the community, said Johnson, a nurse anesthetist, and Zayas, who’s retired from the U.S. Navy but works as a civilian contractor.
