Groundbreaking ceremony for Slipaway Cape opening 2024

Slipaway Food Truck Park & Marina coming to Cape Coral

Cape Coral’s first food truck park breaks ground, slated to open in 2024

Construction has commenced for Slipaway Food Truck Park & Marina, anticipated to be a one-of-a-kind waterfront destination in Cape Coral for family-friendly outdoor fun and entertainment.

Slipaway will be Cape Coral’s first food truck park and marina. It is expected to open in late 2024.

Community leaders, project partners and supporters gathered for a ceremony on June 22 to celebrate the groundbreaking of the new waterfront concept. Situated on 3.1 acres at 1811 Cape Coral Parkway E. at the foot of the Cape Coral Bridge, Slipaway Food Truck Park & Marina will be a hot spot for festivals and events, waterside dining and entertainment. With live music, food and outdoor fun, highlights include space for 10 food trucks, 30 boat slips, 154 seats at the central bar, six shade pavilions with an additional 144 seats, 1,370 feet of pathways and boardwalks, and 120 parking spots. Proximity to the Cape Coral Bridge and the Caloosahatchee River, ample parking, boat access, a fuel dock and ship store will make it easy for guests to come by car or boat.

The concept is led by owners Jeff Miloff, Gary Aubuchon, Scott Fischer, Sandra Dean, John Kulhavi, Chuck McGuirk and Rick McGuirk. Bringing a combined 100 years of living and working in Cape Coral and Southwest Florida, leadership created a concept that emphasizes features that make the region special. Slipaway’s logo sports a smalltooth sawfish, paying homage to one of the creatures native to the Caloosahatchee River waters and celebrating the beauty that the region has to offer. 

“This is a unique concept for the Cape Coral region and brings together the waterfront experiences that Southwest Florida residents and visitors love, while supporting our region’s thriving food truck community,” said Gary Aubuchon, owner of Slipaway Food Truck Park & Marina. “We are proud to celebrate all that makes the Cape a great place to live, work and play as we embrace yet another exciting opportunity to enhance the region’s growing list of food and entertainment options.”

Slipaway Food Truck Park & Marina is slated for completion in late 2024. Project partners include Stokes Marine, Chase Builders, Christopher J. Lee Architects, Wegman Design Group and Sanibel Captiva Community Bank.

Slipaway has opened applications for its available food truck spots and will consider established food trucks as well as new food truck concepts. Water, electric and sewer hook-ups will be provided for 10 food trucks. Food truck applications are available at
