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.
