The Washington State Food Truck Association, was officially launched in April of 2015, and is a member services organization. We advocate on behalf of all our mobile food members to help them succeed in this very competitive industry. We aim to serve as a central hub of communication & information, an event & catering referral and information source, and will provide local and state-level proactive lobbying and advocacy.
We help new vendors get started in the industry, work cooperatively with municipalities and governmental agencies to review codes, ordinances and procedures so they can better address the realities of the industry, and we use our strength in numbers to provide members with better prices on supplies and services all food trucks use.
