CHARLEVOIX, MI – City officials rolled out a pilot program last week that will bring food trucks to various locations throughout Charlevoix for the summer months.

The mobile food vendors will be assigned to different zones on city-owned property on designated days. The hours of operation depend on the day and zone the vendor is in.

“This is a unique opportunity to not only bring more food and beverage choices to Charlevoix during our busy summer season, but to get more people out to our beaches, parks, golf course and even our airport,” said Mark Heydlauff, Charlevoix’s city manager.

Mobile food vendors will need to apply for a permit, with a $450 mobile vending fee, provide proof of Special Transitory Food Unit License issued by the state with proper notice given to the Health Department of Northwest Michigan, and provide proper insurance documentation.

Application-approved food truck purveyors will be allowed to operate on city-owned property downtown on Thursdays at Lake Michigan Beach and Ferry Beach, and on any day of the week at Depot Beach, the Charlevoix Golf Club and Charlevoix Municipal Airport.
