Downtown East Lansing Might See Some Food Truck Action This Spring
Downtown East Lansing might see some food truck action this Spring.
According to the Lansing State Journal, East Lansing's City Council voted to reinstate "a pilot program to allow food trucks and carts to test the downtown market." The program started a couple years ago but didn't get a lot of traction because it costs $1,800 for a 12-month license. This springtime will be different.
Now, food trucks and carts can set up shop downtown "at a rate of $100 for two weeks". A total of nine food carts and nine food trucks can take part in this test, which will take place from March to May. The food carts will set up on the northeast corner of Albert and MAC, right outside the Marriott. And the food trucks can be found "near the corner of Albert Avenue and Abbot Road." During the tests, food carts and trucks will only be able to sell food from 7 a.m. to midnight.
