Brookline, Brighton, and Allston residents rejoice – food trucks will soon be closer to us than ever! Last night Brookline Town Selectmen voted in favor of allowing food trucks in Brookline.
Five trucks will start carting mobile cuisine around town: Pennypackers, Paris Creperie, Renula’s Greek Kitchen, Compliments, and the Baja Taco Truck.
The trucks will occupy four locations in town: two off Comm Ave, a spot at the intersection of Beacon Street and Englewood Avenue, and a Saturday morning spot in Washington Square.
The trucks are part of a six-month pilot program the selectmen approved last month, and we can expect to start seeing them as soon as April 17th!
While some complained of possibly damaging brick-and-mortar businesses in the area, Selectwoman Jesse Mermell, an advocate for the food truck pilot program, said, “I think food trucks are going to a refreshing and hopefully tasty addition our streets.” No arguments there!
