Food trucks are all the rave in cities like Portland and Seattle while here in Spokane, interest is on the rise but the long permit process is turning some entrepreneurs away.
Right now the city is hosting an open house for current and potential food vendors to get feedback on how the process to become a vendor can be streamlined and made easier for people in the future.
In a parking space, right outside the courthouse every Tuesday, Couple of Chefs Catering cooks up a little bit of everything from burgers, sandwiches to fried Mac and Cheese.
"We decided Spokane needed another food truck," Joile Forral with Couple of Chefs said.
The interest in food trucks is growing, but getting the right permits and going through inspections takes both time and a lot of patience.
"A couple times we had the issue of asking a question and since it's such a new idea and concept people were like 'Oh, I'm not quite sure, let me ask someone else,'" Forral said.
Doug Bickford with D & D Dogs said it took him three months to get on the street grilling hot dogs.
