Park Pilot Applications for Approved Mobile Food Vendors

These pilots were developed based on a review of the vending program, the vendor feedback received via email over the last few years and in response to the high volume of vendor interest against approved park vending site locations.

Attention Vendors
Approved vendors with one vending unit will be required to choose between the First Come First Serve (FCFS) option and Assigned Vendor Locations (AVL) option.

Approved vendors with two approved vending units will be permitted to enter one unit into the FCFS and one into the AVL. Vendors that operate more than 2 units may apply for Street Roaming Permits for their additional units. Each unit (AHS Mobile #/Licence Plate) is tied to the permit provided. Please note that switching in and out of units will not be permitted.
