Montgomery County Food Trucks Start Website


A group of Montgomery County food trucks have started a website, another measure of how the county's food truck operators are organizing to help promote each other. It's also another sign of how truck owners are coming together in case they face the type of backlash trucks in D.C. and Arlington have. The website,, includes schedules for 16 of the county's most popular trucks, including many that make frequent stops in Bethesda. It also includes a blog and contact info for catering requests. Brick-and-mortar restaurant owners have traditionally seen food truck owners as competitors who don't have to spend as much in operating costs. In Bethesda, food truck operators who do set up shop in downtown areas say it's not uncommon to be harassed by meter attendants. Many prefer to set up in the corporate office parks near Rockledge Drive, where parking is easier and a steady flow of customers is guaranteed. In September, a group of about 12 vendors discussed how to better communicate marketing strategies and routes and how to fight regulations such as the county’s “9 a.m. to dusk” rule. The county does not permit trucks to operate past sundown, which effectively limits vendors to lunchtime hours during the winter months. Later this week, the D.C. Committee on Business, Consumer and Regulatory Affairs will review a proposal that would restrict food trucks to certain areas of the city.
