ABOUT US

One Voice

 

By forming this organization we can speak with one voice to address and hopefully alleviate the concerns of the various elements in the community. By creating a single representative entity, we hope to make it possible to work with local governments, merchants associations and others to ensure our presence is a positive experience for all involved.

Our Goals
 
  • Provide a single point of contact for those who wish to discuss any aspect of our businesses and to work to develop and maintain positive relations with all concerned.
  • Create a code of behavior for the food truck industry to ensure that we are good neighbors and a benefit to our communities.
  • Work cooperatively with municipalities and governmental bureaucracies to review codes, ordinances, procedures and enforcement so that they better address the realities of our industry and not try to apply out-dated and inapplicable rules to this novel and dynamic business model.
  • Develop a system of mentoring new operators so they can become positive additions to this new culinary movement.
  • Create a system of addressing issues that may arise from our presence and develop equitable solutions to resolve any problems in the food truck industry.
  • Provide a point of contact for members of the community who wish to avail themselves of the services our members.
