Revere Food Trucks
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.
