Has the food truck revolution come to your community? Across the country, specialty or gourmet food trucks offer economic development opportunities for both entrepreneurs launching their own businesses and districts seeking to boost vibrancy and culinary variety, but concerns may arise around food safety, neighborhood compatibility, and competition with bricks-and-mortar restaurants.

Cities are now adopting zoning and licensing ordinances addressing mobile food vending on public and private properties that attempt to balance these issues.

This Essential Info Packet provides an extensive collection of sample zoning and licensing ordinances, along with background articles, staff reports, and local permit guidelines, to show how communities across the country are regulating food trucks.
