The city of Atlanta Monday announced it has launched the first public property food truck program that allows food trucks to vend from designated city streets.

To ensure a successful citywide rollout later this year, a pilot program will allow vendors to be located in the Government Walk area immediately surrounding City Hall throughout the summer. Trucks will be located on Trinity Avenue, Mitchell Street, Central Avenue, Pryor Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.

“This is a win-win for foodies who love food trucks and for these entrepreneurs who chose Atlanta as a place to do business,” said District 8 Atlanta City Councilwoman Yolanda Adrean, who along with District 2 Councilman Kwanza Hall were instrumental in spearheading legislation to allow for expanding opportunities for food truck vendors on the public right-of-way.
