NSVI- Spokane Vending
Spokane County has 85 mobile food vendors. But right now, Spokane doesn’t have an ordinance that specifically regulates food trucks and carts. Instead, it has a statute for “itinerant vendors.” To legally sell, mobile vendors need both a permit and a temporary business registration for their business. The latter lasts only 90 days.
Itinerant vendors can operate in any zone, but they can only stay in a public right of way (e.g. streets) for 10 minutes.
But vendors could soon have more locations to roam free. A proposed ordinance would allow food trucks to vend in public rights of way and on private property downtown and in commercial and industrial zones.
