Food trucks

We are committed to supporting and growing Boston’s thriving food truck ecosystem.

The Office of Economic Development has the tools and expertise to help entrepreneurs start and grow their food truck business. Our office also offers guidance on business development needs.

Established in 2011, Boston's food truck program has grown to include over 95 food trucks occupying both public and private sites across Boston.

Support Boston food trucks

In an effort to support these valuable small businesses during COVID-19, we're launching a temporary site pilot this summer to allow unprecedented access to Boston’s neighborhoods.

History

The City of Boston passed an ordinance in 2011 to allow food trucks. You must follow the rules and regulations in this ordinance if you want to work as a food truck vendor.
