Hub Streat is a Culinary Entertainment Center in Downtown Plano, TX that is expected to open April 2017. Weather, construction, and permitting pushed the opening back for over a year. To start generating revenue, Hub Streat decided to host a food truck event in their parking lot at the end of Jan. 2017.

Hub Streat came to us to design a social media campaign to promote the event.
