CAMPBELL RIVER, B.C. – The City of Campbell River is looking for food truck vendors.

The city hopes to launch the CR Street Eats pilot program sometime in the summer, which will see food trucks coming to the downtown core.

According to a release, the City of Campbell River is looking for up to four food vendors interested in participating in the pilot program.

“Food trucks continue to be a fast growing sector in the restaurant industry, complementing traditional bricks and mortar restaurants,” Campbell River’s economic development officer Rose Klukas wrote in the release.

“Campbell River looks forward to joining this movement, giving residents and tourists more dining options.”

The release added that community feedback has shown that Campbell River residents are interested in seeing food trucks come into the city.

The city expects that the 12-week pilot program will draw more people to the downtown core.

Participants will be selected based on the food truck’s size and vendor availability. Vendors will be regulated through conditions set by the city, and must provide bi-weekly reports to city staff.

For those interested in participating, send an email of interest to foodtrucks@campbellriver.ca or drop off paper documentation at city hall by Friday, May 3rd.
