And of course, it brings you some tasty treats like Amy’s Truck! We’ll be there to fill you up so you can survive both days full of amazing events. Can’t wait to see you there.

The City of Buffalo Common Council will hold a final meeting regarding food truck legislation on Tuesday, March 26, 2013 at 2:00 PM in council chambers on the 13th floor of City Hall. The current food truck ordinance will expire April 1st.

City of Buffalo residents, people who work in Buffalo– we need your help! The current ordinance imposes a licensing fee of $1,000 per truck, per year, giving Buffalo the highest food truck fee in the nation. Cities like LA, New York, Austin and Cleveland charge significantly lower fees for a food truck license. The $1,000 fee is cost-prohibitive to many, and has proven to be harmful to Buffalo’s fledgling food truck economy. Amy’s, together with an association of several other food trucks, are advocating for a decreased fee.

You can help us, and all current and future food truck vendors, by exercising your civic rights! If you are a Buffalo resident, call or email your Common Council representative and let him or her know that you support a decreased fee for food truck licensing. Find your representative’s contact information here. Attend the meeting on Tuesday; it’s open to the public. Sign up to speak at the meeting and voice your opinion for the record.

If you’d like to learn more about food trucks, the Institute for Justice recently published a study titled “Seven Myths and Realities about Food Trucks: Why the Facts Support Food Truck Freedom.”

Food truck freedom is on the line! We want to continue to serve high-quality, creative food at fair prices to our loyal customers. Tell the Common Council you want a lower fee for food trucks!

Alright Buffalo!

We could all really use your help! The buffalo permits and licensing fees are really hurting all of your favorite Buffalo food trucks. We went in front of Common Counsel yesterday to plea with them to lower these fees so we can all continue to operate. I won’t mention any names, but there are also brick & mortar restaurant owners out there trying to put more restrictions on places for the trucks to park. We want to continue to serve you, but the city is making it difficult! If you have a moment, email or call our counsel members at city hall and tell them you want the trucks to be able to survive and thrive here, so the fees must come down! And no more added restrictions!! Thank you all!! Help us keep on trucking!
