REDDING, Calif. - The owners of Redding-area Dutch Bros. are now on board with a long-awaited food truck project.

Carnegie park in Downtown Redding is closed off to the public at this time

But behind the fence, construction is already getting started on a long awaited food truck project that promises to change the face of this area.

“Basically just moving some dirt and getting everything level so we can start building the patio,” developer Todd Franklin said.

Franklin has been trying make his vision for this park a reality for about a year now.

He originally reached out to local Dutch Bros co-owners Chris and Erin Resner for advice on getting his other food truck project in Anderson up and running.

“And then the friendship kind of grew and the business partner grew,” Franklin said. “And this is where we're at today.”

And it was a perfect match because the Resners both share Franklin’s passion to revitalize Downtown Redding.

“I love Todd's vision for this park downtown,” Chris Resner said. “I think it's like a diamond in the rough down here. I remember coming down here for Market Fest and just seeing the people packed in here and live music, and I think that there's so much potential here.”

Resner hopes to apply what he's learned from Dutch Bros. to Franklin's vision for the park.

“So I think being able to say we're going to hold you guys to this level of standard whether it's for speed, quality and customer service, those sorts of things,” he said. “I think that's what we're bringing to it.”

And Franklin says he’s excited.

“And anytime you go to Dutch Bros. it's a great experience,” Franklin said. “And that's what we’re trying to create down here.”

The park was supposed to open last summer but hit a snag then some residents of the Lorenz Hotel contested Franklin's beer and wine license.

That matter has since been resolved, and Franklin and his new partners are moving forward with the project full throttle.

“We just want to make an amazing atmosphere and they're going to be a huge part of that,” he said.

Franklin said if all goes according to plan, they should be finished with construction and ready to open July first.
