Following a request by the Board of Selectmen, Town Staff launched a pilot mobile food program which ran from July 2012 - December 2013. The Selectmen voted to continue the program through December 2014.
In recent years, mobile food trucks and carts have become increasingly popular across the country. Restauranteurs are able to develop new food concepts at relatively low cost and bring them to locations where there may be an unsatisfied demand for freshly-prepared food. Brookline is a desirable place to support mobile food, in part because of its population of college students, young professionals and families. Food trucks have also become a popular option to cater both private and public special events. The Town values its existing, robust community of dining establishments. When making food truck parking assignments, the Town of Brookline will take into careful consideration the location and type of established restaurants in an effort to minimize any impact of the Mobile Food Program on existing businesses.
Qualified Mobile Food Truck or Cart applicants use public parking locations on certain Town streets and parks from which to sell freshly-prepared food to the general public. The locations for food trucks or carts are areas more likely to be underserved by nearby restaurants.
