Cleveland: Mobile Food Truck Operators May Get Own Parking Zones

The debate has simmered for months — where can food truck operators park on Cleveland streets?

Channel 3 News has learned that city council could soon be considering legislation that would designate new food truck parking zones in downtown Cleveland.

Last year, Cleveland started a “sustainable street food pilot program,” which allows food to be cooked and sold at a mobile site.

However, confusion over permitted parking spots has been an issue for food truck operators.

Some restaurant owners also voiced concerns about the locations where food trucks will be allowed to set up shop.

“This will be the first year with multiple trucks,” said Jae Stulock, co-owner of Umami Moto, a food truck serving Thai and Vietnamese dishes, “and it’s kind of taken (city council members) by surprise. So they’re putting some legislation together to make it a viable thing for us.”
