Jason told us about the woes of Atlanta’s food truck park yesterday. Alas, it appears the random permit issues over trucks and their allowed multiple locations have been resolved. The park has re-opened for business.
“Thanks to the help of our friends, [City] Council member Kwanza Hall, the Atlanta Police Dept., City Hall and the Atlanta Street Food Coalition, your favorite food trucks are now acquiring the proper vending permits for Atlanta Food Truck Park,” said a message posted on the park’s website.
“Over the next couple of days, more and more food trucks will make appearances,” the statement said, adding that plans are being made for a “Take Two—Grand Opening” party.
I still don’t get the concept beyond the general novelty of it all, but so be it. So long as they follow the same business license and health inspection rules that competing other businesses must face, then if you want to eat food out of a truck, there’s a place on Howell Mill Road for you.
