WYDOT Permitting Food Trucks At Rest Areas
Written by Andrew-Rossi on May 1, 2020
WYDOT has taken a step in a new direction: managing food truck vendors.
WYDOT Officials have approved G-Licious Catering of Cheyenne as their first food truck vendor. While the concept might not sound so revolutionary, it’s the location that has the potential to turn heads. They will be selling burgers, sandwiches, and breakfast food at the Interstate 25 Welcome Center. They are the first food truck offering service at a Wyoming rest area, a spot where WYDOT previously hasn’t allowed food to be sold. The change is largely driven by the difficulty motorists are having with buying food due to coronavirus restrictions.
This qualifies as a special event permit, which means that there is a number of additional guidelines vendors must follow when and where they operate: providing trash cans and removing any trash daily, possibly remediating any issues that impact WYDOT property and land, and only setting up at a specific location in each rest area.
Any business interested in expanding to rest areas is encouraged to reach out to WYDOT about setting up shop. You can find a full list of locations and office contact information at: http://www.dot.state.wy.us/home/news_info/contact-information.html
