What We Do
The Washington State Food Truck Association, was officially launched in April of 2015, as 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 source, and provide local and state-level proactive lobbying and advocacy.
We work to educate venue & event hosts on logistics and fees. We can help to negotiate special pricing and discounts from product and service providers on behalf of our members. And, we can provide resources and assistance to help new, and prospective new food truck operators get started.
