Mpls. Expands Number of Food-Truck Vendors
In addition to sidewalks and private lots, the vendors now are allowed to sell food curbside at pre-approved locations, although they must pay appropriate parking-meter rates if they take up a parking spot. Also, vendors do not have to commit to a permanent location as they had to last year.
“It was a successful first year for mobile food vending in Minneapolis, and I’m hoping that this year is even more successful,” City Council Member Lisa Goodman said in a news release. “These changes are making it possible for more entrepreneurs to start mobile food businesses, while also bringing food trucks to more parts of the city and increasing the vitality of our neighborhoods and streets."
