Food Truck Permits

The City of Murfreesboro recognizes the growing interest in food trucks in our community.  In response to requests from our citizens, food truck operators, and various organizers of special events in the community, city staff are currently working to develop a permitting process for mobile food service vehicles that will balance the demand for loosening restrictions on food trucks with the desire to maintain regulations necessary for the health, safety and welfare of
our citizens.
