GREENVILLE, S.C. —The operators of the food truck that led the way for others in the city of Greenville made a shocking announcement on their Facebook page Monday.

Neue South Portland

Neue Southern Food Truck owner and Chef Lauren Zanardelli’s post says,

“Graham and I have some news we’d like to share with you. It’s kind of a bomb, so I’m just gonna drop it. Graham and I are moving to Portland, Oregon this spring. We know this comes as a huge surprise. It’s all happened extremely quickly. What seemed like some vague, distant idea became a reality overnight, and we’re still in a state of shock ourselves!

“Graham and I knew when we started our business that our future would always be a little unpredictable. From the time we opened until now, we’ve been asked what our next step will be, and that question, at best, has been met by us with shrugs. We’ve known that in a few years time we want to be working toward opening our brick and mortar restaurant. But until recently, we didn’t know what the years in between would hold. We spent the last six months exploring every possible direction. What can I say. We’ve both dreamed about one day living on the west coast. And we’re so fortunate to have this opportunity to spend a few years in a progressive culinary city. We’ll be learning and absorbing everything we can before we move back east to kill it in OUR restaurant. We feel like we need to take it.

“Bittersweet is too ineffectual a word to describe this move. Still having so much we want to learn, we’re ridiculously excited to be moving to a city that revolves around its dining culture and has city blocks lined in mobile eateries. And at the same time, I cry like a baby when I think of what it’s going to mean to say goodbye to all of you as this adventure comes to a close. I struggle to find the words… I’ve rewritten this post more times than I care to publicly admit, and every time I reread it, I hate it. It just doesn’t begin to do our feelings justice.

“We know how much this sucks for our fans, but we hope that you can be happy for us. It’s not going to be even a little easy to leave, so we could really use your support! It would make a world of difference for Graham and me. We seriously don’t know what we’ll do without you. Our very last service is on Saturday, March 15 at The Community Tap –the parking spot that brought our truck to Greenville, and the place where this all started.

“We hope we get a chance to see and feed all of you these next two weeks. But it’s not goodbye yet! We’re going to make the very best of every minute we have left on our truck. You’ve made this the most remarkable experience of our lives to date. To say we love you for it barely scratches the surface.  Cheers to you, Greenville.”

neue-southernGREENVILLE, SC — With the concerns of downtown restaurants as their primary consideration, a citizen task force has made recommendations to the Greenville City Council for how to handle food trucks within the city.

In a release, Mayor Pro Tem David Sudduth said, “Our primary goal was to develop a plan whereby existing restaurants can continue to be successful, not feel threatened by food trucks, and introduce the growing food truck industry to Greenville in a profound and meaningful way.”

The city called the proposed regulations a win-win for restaurants and food trucks, but not everyone agrees.

Neue Southern Food Truck owner and Chef Lauren Zanardelli said, “We don’t necessarily see it as a victory.”

“I think proximity rule makes it almost impossible to park the truck downtown,” she said.

Currently, food trucks are not allowed on public property and must only be parked on private property.  The new recommendations will require that food trucks be parked only on private property but now also include the stipulation that they be parked at least 250 feet away from any existing restaurant, essentially eliminating food trucks from downtown Greenville’s Central Business District.

The proposed regulations define mobile food vendor vehicles as: food truck, food trailer, mobile market food truck, catering-type food truck.

Scott LaRiviere, owner of Downtown Dogs, said, “I would definitely consider them competition. I understand everybody has got to make a living. Fact is, they are mobile and can set up wherever they want. They can pick and choose.”

You may have missed it, but the mobile food industry is growing faster than anyone would have guessed two years ago. It can be difficult to keep up with the new trucks and carts as they pop up throughout the country. Because of this, Mobile Cuisine assists our readers weekly by posting the names and information about these trucks, so if they happen to be in your area, you can begin to follow them, or at least keep any eye out for them on the roads and cart pods.
