Manassas makes getting a food truck permit easier

food-truck-twitter-bg

Diners in search of fast, novel, and delicious meals may soon have more choices as new rules enable food trucks to open for business in the City of Manassas.

Although food trucks have always been a fixture at Manassas events like the Fall Jubilee, and have always been permitted at private events, recent changes to the zoning ordinance make it possible for food trucks to open on a regular basis. The zoning change responded to a growing nationwide and local demand among consumers for food truck fare and a growing number of local vendors ready to open for business.

Restaurateurs interested in parking their food trucks in Manassas will find a streamlined process for permitting. Food trucks are permitted to open if a property owner with at least one acre of land grants permission, and the truck owner obtains an annual $50 zoning permit, a business license, and all appropriate licenses and inspections from the Virginia Department of Health.

Up to three food trucks can stay open at an approved location for four hours between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m., and all trucks must be removed from the property at the end of the day.
