Street Food 101 – Monday October 13 – 9am – 12pm



Street Food 101 at the Atlanta Food Service Expo – Oct. 13

On Monday Oct. 13 from 9am-12pm, we will be holding a Street Food 101 workshop in conjunction with the Atlanta Food Service Expo at the Georgia World Congress Center.

This workshop will address the legal and permitting issues that new mobile food vendors are likely to run into and will send you off with all the insider information you need to start your very own street food business.

The workshop will be a part of the 2nd Annual Atlanta Food Service Expo - the only event in Georgia and the Southeast to bring together all sectors of the restaurant, food service and hospitality industry under one roof.  All Street Food 101 registrants will have access to the Expo Exhibition Hall, as well.

If you are dreaming of operating your own food truck, trailer, or cart, but are mystified by the various permitting processes, business financing, and other issues facing street food start ups – this workshop is for you.

Please register now through the Atlanta Food Service Expo Website.  Note: The Atlanta Food Service Expo is typically reserved for current food service professionals – however, an exception is made for Street Food 101 attendees.  When prompted for licensing information during registration, please simply ignore/make note of your plans to attend the workshop.
