Food trucks coming to Atlanta public spaces in pilot program

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (CBS46) -

The city of Atlanta will welcome food trucks on public grounds for the first time starting next week.

With plans for a citywide rollout later this year, the summer-long pilot program will allow food vendors to sell items in the Government Walk area just outside City Hall. Starting at 11 a.m. on Monday, April 21, 15 food trucks can be found on Trinity Avenue, Mitchell Street, Central Avenue, Pryor Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.

"This is a win-win for foodies who love food trucks and for these entrepreneurs who chose Atlanta as a place to do business," said Atlanta City Council Member Yolanda Adrean.

"Food trucks have been popular on private properties for several years and the demand for public property vending by food truck customers was apparent," said Council Member Kwanza Hall. "This is a city-sponsored program, and we are excited to offer this amenity to downtown employees, citizens and visitors."
