Food Trailer question. Fri, 01/17/14 12:59 PM (permalink)
If this has been answered, please forgive me. I am thinking about purchasing a food trailer and for me I think the hardest part is where I would set up. I have a few questions.
If I find a spot I think looks good do I contact the OWNER of the property or the Person leasing it. For Example, there is a shopping center near me that has a great road view. There are about 10 or so stores in there (none of which sell food). Would I contact the owner of the property or would I ask for the manager of the store I would be in front of? Also, what kind of kick back do you give these people? 

For the summer, I was thinking about setting up at baseball games etc. Does anyone know if there are any rules about setting up at city parks?

    The owner of the property.

    You would have to contact your local Parks and Rec Dept about being able to set up in a city park. In my city, you can't, but that might not be the case where you live.

      MIght i suggest you go to your local city clerk, city manager's office, or visit with your towns inspections/ code enforcement to see what if anything they have in terms of codes/rules regarding your cart.

      They may have size restrictions, hours of operations, and location rules you'll want to know before jumping in to this.
