City Approves Food Trucks at Breweries and Distilleries

The City of Frederick moved forward on an ordinance change to allow mobile food units to operate at craft breweries, wineries, and distilleries.

Carly Ogden with AttaBoy Brewery shared, "We're very happy with the change and the pace with which it passed. Food trucks are a great symbiotic partner for our business. We can worry about the beer and let the food be handled by local pros. It's also pretty cool to see many young entrepreneurs getting their foot in the door. It's a great way for them to join in and add something to this great culinary city."

Monica Pearce with X Ward Distilling offered this thought, "As a representative for the Frederick Distillery Association we are extremely grateful to everyone with the City of Frederick who worked to get the food truck ordinance passed. It will not only be incredibly beneficial to the local craft beverage industry but will also keep our customers safe while they are enjoying our products."

The legislation demonstrates Frederick's continued support for the rapidly expanding craft beverage industry. The changes promote increased tourism and spending in Frederick, as well as balancing the needs of existing restaurants and related businesses.
