New Vendors - If you are new to the food truck industry and would like some help getting started, we can offer: guidance on state and local laws, rules, and ordinances, help you navigate the sometimes complex permitting process, and help you make some key decisions and avoid costly mistakes. Plus many other tips and suggestions.

Plus many other tips and suggestions.
Event Planners - There are many logistical concerns that are different when using food trucks over the typical food vendor (e.g. fire safety, city code, county regs, permits, etc.). Learn how to find and book the best local food trucks, understand how to properly compensate mobile vendors, and learn how to navigate the often complicated event coordinating process and avoid jeopardizing the success of your event.
City Guidance - If you are looking to start your own food truck pod and need help working with city government? Or, are you in local government and would like resource and logistical information for revising existing mobile food vendor codes or drafting a new ordinance? We can give you guidance based on the Institute for Justice’s recommendations and what has worked in other similar geographic areas.
