Hamilton’s food truck program has expanded menu choices

News May 04, 2015 by Kevin Werner Stoney Creek News

Hamilton’s food truck pilot program has been expanded this year to include a park in upper Stoney Creek.

At their May 4 meeting, members of the public works committee agreed to add Valley Park to the seven other parks food trucks can conduct business in starting this year. City staff has also extended the program from May 1 to Sept. 30, providing an additional 30 days of potential business.

The parks that were involved in the program last year were Pier 4, Bayfront, Confederation, Heritage Green, Turner, Sam Lawrence and Gage.

Last year the first year of the program raised $5,150 in revenue from the $50 daily fee.

Each park has three permits available to food trucks every day to use, say city officials.

City staff found the most popular parks for the food trucks were Bayfront and Pier 4, while the least visited were Sam Lawrence, Gage and Heritage Green.

Robert Norman, director of strategic planning, said the city will attempt to promote those parks that are not normally attractive to food trucks, to visit.

Norman said there were no complaints about last year’s pilot program and everything was successful.
