Columbus is city of fans. It’s true that each fall we  paint the town red scarlet and grey for our beloved Ohio State Buckeyes – but summer belongs to taco trucks and food carts. We central Ohioans are so batty for food-on-wheels that there is a whole website devoted to Columbus taco trucks, complete with a locator map !  Maybe you read last Wednesday’s Dispatch article about the food truck boom in Columbus. It featured ECDI client and mobile dessert innovator Carla Saunders, who peddles t0-die-for cupcakes as Three Babes and a Baker.

We’re pretty crazy about food trucks as their very low overhead allows for tasty, gourmet eats for a reasonable price.  While  food trucks may require less initial startup capital than brick-and-mortar restaurants, they are not without unique complications.  All mobile food businesses must operate out of an approved commissary in order to maintain the required standards of sanitation and food storage – not to mention the sticky health and safety regulations that accompany a kitchen on the move.

ECDI is going to be doing some amazing things in the coming year, and among them we’re proud that we’ll soon have a mobile food commissary to call our own. That’s right – mobile food businesses will be able to dock with us, when not out serving the hungry masses.  It’s all part of our mission to be a one-stop-shop for up-and-coming food entrepreneurs in central Ohio through our Growing Entrepreneurs Initiative.
