Beachgoers in Manasquan will not find themselves staring down at a Fat Gigolo this summer.
Rutgers Grease Truck vendors applied to hawk the cheesesteak sandwich and other fat sandwiches this year from May 1 to Oct. 31.
Gourmet food trucks offer everything from cupcakes and homemade ice cream to Asian fusion tacos. The trucks have exploded in popularity since Kogi Korean BBQ rolled out its trucks on the streets of Los Angeles five years ago.
The borough had been seeking a vendor to sell hot dogs, hamburgers, soft pretzels, breakfast sandwiches and coffee.
Rutgers Grease Trucks and similar mobile businesses were rejected, according to the website, which quoted Manasquan business administrator Joe DeIorio.
In fact, none of the applicants were chosen.
According to the report, Manasquan may instead choose to rent a trailer and set up its own food-service operation.
