U.S. REPRESENTATIVE ELEANOR HOLMES NORTON
The District's most popular cuisine on wheels has been an asset to the city and a convenience providing new variety for our tastes. The food truck phenomenon has taken our city by storm, offering everything from sandwiches to barbecue to Indian food curbside.
EILEEN FILLER-CORN, VIRGINIA HOUSE OF DELEGATES REPRESENTATIVE
It is critical that we give individuals the opportunity to succeed in starting a business here in the Commonwealth by opening doors and enabling hard-working entrepreneurs to start and grow their dream.
PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY COUNCILWOMAN DANNIELLE GLAROS
Food trucks are more than just a trend. They are an engine of economic growth and entrepreneurship ... We open the door to economic development and revitalization around our transit hubs and create a market here at home for our aspiring entrepreneurs.
DC COUNCIL MEMBER, DAVID GROSSO
I like the fact that it's a small business incubator. It gets small businesses up and going. It gives people an opportunity to engage with our economy that didn't normally have that opportunity.
VIRGINIA GOVERNOR TERRY MCAULIFFE
We ought to be able to give all of our great citizens access to a diversity of food, promoting small business at the same time.
SHARON BULOVA, MADAME CHAIRMAN OF THE FAIRFAX COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS
Food trucks are particularly popular for workers and residents in more urban areas, and I expect to see more of them operating ... Food trucks offer a convenient dining choice and a new compliment to Fairfax County’s dining experiences.
D.C COUNCIL MEMBER, MARY CHEH
People really like the food and the availability of the food, so it serves a need that people are very happy to have those trucks for.
