LUBBOCK, TX – Food trucks are a trend cooking up in larger cities. They are starting to become popular right here in Lubbock, too. Lubbock City Council unanimously voting to approve the first reading of the Mobile Food Vendor ordinance, without hesitation. The article would allow food trucks to operate in many more locations throughout the city. It will take a second vote at it’s next meeting to enact the ordinance. Members indicating a pass on the second reading is likely, exciting food truck owners across town.
“It feels awesome. It’s something we’ve been pushing for the last couple months,” Chopped and Sliced owner Shawn Stephenson said. “It just opens up a lot of avenues for businesses to be able to request a food truck to come onto their property and be able to sell some food. I love putting smiles on people’s faces with good food.”
“I love it. I love to cook, I love for people to taste my food and I just think food makes people happy,” Ms. V’s Home Cooking owner Vernessa Kinney added. “We couldn’t go too many places and now people can taste everything instead of having the same thing over and over again. I can come to your home and I’ll cook right there in your front yard for you. All you need to do is put your fluffy slippers on and come out in your gown, I’m ready to hand you your plate. I love food trucks and everyone needs to try them.””
