The City of Puyallup is imposing outdated, unreasonable, and burdensome fees and regulations on our food truck operators. The Washington State Food Truck Association has worked to fix these regulations, but without success. Therefore, will not do business within the city of Puyallup nor will we promote, list, or sponsor any food truck events or daily vending schedules, until these regulations are fixed.
We are currently advising our members to find alternative vending locations in neighboring cities. We are advising event planners, corporate business park managers, and citizens to contact their local elected officials.
Food trucks are an important source of economic opportunity for entrepreneurs of all types and from all backgrounds. Food trucks can enhance the culinary culture of your city, increase employment, enliven streets, and provide a wide variety of food options in underserved areas… if you let them.
