Increase food truck spots in the City of Boston

Food trucks have provided residents and people working in Boston options to creative, innovative menus. Prices are competitive with most of the alternative lunch options available, and the quality is often higher. We have seen events where food trucks draw people to the city. Many food trucks have expanded from their original business and added more trucks and/or establish brick and mortar restaurants. These entrepreneurs are job creators. Food trucks also contribute to success in other areas of food entrepreneurism, using local commissaries and purchasing goods from local farms and vendors. Therefore we ask that the city expand locations for food trucks to operate, especially in multi truck clusters. There are a number of areas that are not served at all in the present program including, Downtown Crossing and the Fenway. Opportunities should be made available in areas where there is night life, after Garden events, and other venues around the city. A broader program will be an even more effective job creator.

      My sister wants to start a food truck of healthy produce, juices and sandwiches, which is in high demand now. She would not have to pay rent for a buding and her locations can move as she does. I don't see why they are not allowed, its a win win for everyone!

      I think the restaurants take too much time causing me to loose time while off for lunch. I like to spend more time outside not stuck in a restaurant.

      This is important to me because the quality and selection of food truck options couldn't be better. Boston should support more locations so that small business can grow and our options for better food become more available and better priced.
