Attention food truck vendors! The City has 22 on-street food spaces available in 2019. There are 10 cart spaces and 12 truck spaces available. If you’re interested, the list of available locations can be found on ottawa.ca.
A volunteer street-food selection panel, made up of people from the food and hospitality industry and from Ottawa Public Health, will evaluate proposals. Successful applicants will be chosen on the basis of the following criteria:
- proposed menu
- business plan
- level of vendor experience
- overall contribution to Ottawa’s food scene
The deadline to apply for a space is Friday, January 4, 2019 at 4:30 pm. Successful applicants will be offered spaces early next year, with operations expected to roll out in May 2019. An information session for prospective applicants will be held on Monday, December 10, at Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centrepointe Drive. To reserve your space at the information session, please call 3-1-1 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. (City of Ottawa news release)
