Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral has become the first hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to operate its own food truck.
Called Re:Fuel On Wheels, the vehicle is covered in vibrant livery and dishes out tasty and quality nosh to delegates attending private functions outdoors.
What a fine idea, we say! Catering food for a corporate event out of a food truck makes for a fun and memorable experience, and encourages interaction among delegates as they huddle together for a bite.
Greg Gubiani, general manager of Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral, said: “We can tailor-make the menu and food, which is always served fresh as it is prepared in the truck.”
As well, Re:Fuel On Wheels will feed the corporate crowd in the vicinity.
Gubiani further explained that the idea of the food truck came about as there was no such offerings from hotels in the Malaysian capital city.
He added: “It was very well received by event organisers, as they are assured that the hygiene and food standards are the same as that offered by the hotel.”
Just a day after the launch on July 18, a request came for a 1,000 pax event from a nearby mall. At press time, it was currently the truck’s largest catering event.
Re:Fuel On Wheels is a derivation from the hotel’s 24-hour grab and go concept store, Re:Fuel, which offers self-serve gourmet eats.
