Food Trucks Coming to Downtown Dayton

DAYTON -- You will soon be able to get food on street corners in Downtown Dayton.

On Wednesday, city commissioners approved a proposal that will allow food trucks at the intersection of Second Street and St. Clair and on Third Street in front of Sinclair Community College.

"Right now any food truck in the Miami Valley has to park on either private property or obtain a permit to work somewhere off a street," said Matt Halpin, president of Miami Valley Mobile Food Association.

Matt Halpin has owned Fressa Food truck for almost two years.

Whether on Third Street or Second Street, there isn't a lot of people walking around even on a beautiful day like today, and the city hopes bringing the food trucks in will get more people coming downtown.

"They can come up once a week to a zone, they can come every day, they can set up and sell at one zone or go to the other. They can go back and forth, whatever fits their business plan," said Chief Engineer Keith Steeber. "We will watch how it works and hopefully get a lot of feedback."

Food trucks can operate in those zones from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.

"Food trucks are looking to increase their business by having more times and places we can be available and also we are looking at increasing the foot traffic and general funding," said Halpin.

And for people already downtown, it's about convenience.

"That would be great," said Shemaiah Judkins of Dayton. "We would not have to walk all the way down the street or to the hub to get lunch. That would be perfect."

For Halpin it's the perfect way to fulfill a dream.

"That's why I opened up my truck. I hope to one day open up a traditional restaurant and to do that at my age with my experience is hard because you need a lot of capital, but with a food truck that number is a little more manageable and you can get the experience and operate a restaurant on wheels," he said.

This Friday, Dayton is having its first food truck rally. You can support local food truck businesses at RiverScape during Urban Nights.
