Food Cart Pods are an evolving trend in the region, offering an attractive amenity to local employees, visitors and residents. In 2015, the city adopted new regulations to accommodate food cart pods. The city held a competition offering up to $25,000 in grant funds to assist a new food cart pod to locate within the Central Beaverton Urban Renewal District.
On April 26, 2016 The Mayor's Developer Roundtable featured experienced panel members, discussed the competition, and brought interested parties together.
The city selected the winner in June 2016 and is providing a 50% matching grant up to $25k to assist the first Food Cart Pod in Beaverton.
More information on the competition is available in the flyer below.
