GREENSBORO, NC – New food truck rules in Greensboro City allow privately owned vehicles anywhere in the city.

The food trucks were initially banned in the city. The new rules come after a trial period during which they were allowed on Commerce Place downtown. The test phase has now ended and the providers say it went well.

“It’s a new thing for Greensboro,” said Jonathan Bohlen with Great Escape. “It has to grow and change will happen.”

The food trucks must have the owner’s permission and are not allowed to park within 50 feet of a restaurant entrance.

Several downtown restaurants have complained to Greensboro City Council, accusing the food trucks of stealing their store.

Bohlen said he wasn’t buying that excuse.

“I don’t know what to tell you, if your business isn’t doing well, it’s not our business,” he said.

The new rules came into force on December 1st and will run for six months. At the end of the six months, the city council will evaluate and decide where to go from there.
