Support Updating Food Truck Laws in Washington

This petition had 1,402 supporters

Show your support to help local governments understand the growing industry of mobile food here in our state and the need to update current laws.  Many of our cities still require food truck owners to operate under restrictions that protect one business model over another (i.e. brick and mortar restaurants).

The codes that typically govern mobile vendors are outdated and overly restrictive. We need for this to change, so that they encourage new business, benefit communities, and build the strength of our city's restaurant industry.

Some of the restrictive laws that need to be eliminated are:

Those which prevent food trucks from parking in downtowns or business districts, proximity bans, and those which prevent food trucks from operating in public right of ways.

Food trucks are an important source of economic opportunity for entrepreneurs of all types. They can enhance the culinary culture of our cities, increase employment, energize streets, bring communities together and provide food options in underserved areas.
