Trial food-cart ordinance is a good first step

Stahl has converted back to a cart for the summer months, but the problem still remains — what should the city do about bulky vehicle-pulled mobile restaurants?

Many options have been discussed, including housing all trailers in Town Center, restricting trailers from operating too close to open brick-and-mortar businesses, and banning them all together.

After multiple work sessions, the city has finally decided to create a trial ordinance, lasting for a year.

The ordinance will allow the trucks, but will not let them park within a certain distance of open businesses.

This unique problem requires a unique solution, and Mt. Pleasant should be proud of itself for allowing the new ordinance on a trial basis.

But the city should remember to step back and re-assess in a year, and if food cart owners and business owners have any problems, the ordinance should be modified.

Food carts can pack up and disappear, but the taxpaying brick-and-mortar businesses are what make downtown Mt. Pleasant a vital place, and the city should ensure it does what it can to keep them in business.

The Minnesota Food Truck Association will host its first food truck rally later this month.

The rally will be at Minneapolis-based Harriet Brewing (3036 Minnehaha Ave.) from noon to 10 p.m. July 27. There’s room for 20 member trucks at the brewery, but the Association hasn’t confirmed specific trucks or the rally’s name.

Long waits for food have marred other food truck gatherings. But AZ Canteen food truck Director of Operations Asher Miller says that choosing the right menu items can move lines and food faster. He expects seasoned MNFTA operators will help greener members prepare for big events like this one.

The MNFTA is considering a larger event for the fall.

Food Cart Fest organizers promise shorter lines, more trucks

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – In case you missed it, Vancouver’s weekly “Food Cart Fest” is back and at a new location, just steps away from the Cambie Street Bridge and the old Athletes Village.

Organizers admit last Sunday’s debut didn’t go quite the way they planned.

“The wait times were a little long so we’re sorting that out this week,” says Thomas Anselmi with the Arrival Agency.

Anselmi adds one woman waited 45 minutes only to find the carts had run out of food by the time she got in, but points out that with eight more trucks on the way, that shouldn’t happen this Sunday.

“There’s more food carts, and I think that’s the solution. We’ve just got to serve people quicker. Obviously, the most popular ones have line-ups,” he admits.

As for the new $2-admission fee, Anselmi warns it looks like it’s here to stay.

“I wish that the City of Vancouver would make the spot free and that we didn’t have any production expenses, but it’s just not possible,” he tells us. “It’s not like just having a food cart on the street. There’s a lot of expenses to cover.”

That fee is waived for VanCity members.

The festival runs every Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. until September 22nd.

The Red Hook Lobster Pound food truck

Brooklyn clawed its way to the top!

The Red Hook Lobster Pound is the country’s best food truck, a new report claims.

The foodie Web site the Daily Meal — which examined 450 vendors in 40 cities — voted the beloved lobster shack-on-wheels number one out of the country’s 101 best trucks.

Nick-named “Big Red,” the truck serves fresh lobster from Maine in the spring and summer at 284 Van Brunt St — earning a cult-like fan base in the last few years.

And it’s not the only New York vendor to make the list. The Big Gay Ice Cream Truck from the East Village and the vegan truck Cinnamon Snail — found all over Manhattan and Jersey City — also placed in the top ten.

Other NYC vendors that made the cut include Schnitzel Things and Wafels Dinges.

The Daily Meal’s list is based on factors such as staff favorites, social media presence and praise from publications.

Pa. borough mulls lifting longtime food cart ban – 21 News Now, More Local …

CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) – A central Pennsylvania town is weighing whether to lift a longstanding ban on food carts.

Carlisle’s borough code prohibits mobile food carts and trucks, except during parades and special events. Now, business owners are split over a push to open the door to legal street vendors.

Jason Turner sells falafels from a bicycle cart. His business, called Unlawful Falafel, skirts the law by selling on private property. He says it’s often hard to find a spot.

Last year, Councilman Tim Scott says the borough turned down at least 10 different requests to sell food from a mobile unit. He says the food truck business has changed with the introduction of high tech cooking and sanitary equipment.

A round table discussion of the issue is scheduled for July 31.
