Restaurant owners say food trucks a “bad idea” for Greensboro
GREENSBORO, NC — A group of about 20 downtown restaurant owners headed to city council to make their case against a proposed city ordinance that would allow food trucks to operate downtown.
After a two month trial period restaurant owners say their sales revenue dropped significantly while food trucks were allowed to operate.
One restaurant owner suggested that food trucks can still be a part of Greensboro, but should be brought to use on special occasions like festivals, special events or First Fridays.
A Greensboro spokesperson Jake Keys says city council will discuss the details of the ordinance such as hours of operation and how close they can operate near a restaurant.
If the ordinance passes the 14 food trucks that participated in pilot program and anyone else would be able to complete the application process.
