The Local, The Crepe Crusaders and High Grade Catering & Food Truck all opened on Wednesday, Creole Kitchen is scheduled to open Monday and Za Pizza and Shuga's Portable both a set to open next month. John Olson, chair of Colorado Springs Urban Intervention, sponsor of Curbside Cuisine, said Wednesday's opening was a "soft" start and the group hopes to have eight trucks operating by the time it celebrates its grand opening next month. "It is still a work in progress," he said. Curbside Cuisine will operate daily between 6:30 a.m. and 8 p.m. with vendors selling meals priced between $5 and $8. Wayne Heilman, The Gazette
