The City of Cambridge is currently accepting applications from food truck vendors to participate in the third annual Food Truck Program, which will expand to include food truck trailers for the 2020/2021 season. As the food business industry continues to grow and change, food truck trailers have become an attractive, low-cost option for starting a food business. Allowing trailers to vend in the program aligns with the program’s goals to lower the barrier for food entrepreneurs to test menu options and marketing for their business.
The Food Truck Program continues to help incubate and grow food businesses, with a focus on women- and minority-owned businesses as well as first-time food truck or trailer operators, businesses owned by Cambridge residents, food truck or trailer businesses without a brick-and-mortar restaurant operation in Cambridge and no more than one brick-and-mortar operation outside of Cambridge, and food trucks or trailers that are not vending in other outdoor Cambridge venues on a regular basis.
The Food Truck Program application period is open until February 21, 2020. Scheduling for the 2020/2021 season will take effect on Friday, May 1, 2020.
