Revere Food Trucks

In June 2020, the City of Revere approved an ordinance to allow the operation of mobile food vendors within the city limits.

Historically, mobile food vendor operation in the City of Revere was restricted to temporary special events in specific areas of the city. Building on the success of these events, the City is committed to leveraging the mobile food vendor business model, particularly its low start-up costs, to provide an entrepreneurial opportunity to individuals with limited economic resources while simultaneously diversifying the food offerings within the city. The Mobile Food Vendor Program is to be overseen by Maggie Haney, Administrative Assistant in the Office of the License Commission.

This year, the Mobile Food Vendor Program will be operating as a pilot program, so all procedures are subject to change. Vendors will be asked to provide feedback on this program. 

Food Truck Locations

The map below displays the locations where food trucks have been licensed to operate. Click on each location to find out the times and days of the week food trucks can be found at these sites. Scroll to the Food Truck Schedule below to see a schedule of which food trucks will be found at these sites on which dates.

All food truck locations will have trucks from 11am to 8pm, with a "shift change" scheduled each day at 3:30pm for a new truck to come in.
