Drumheller 'foodies' and visitors to the valley could have a lot more choices for a quick snack this summer.
The town's Municipal Planning Commission has received 13 applications for mobile food vendors and all of them have been approved.
"There's quite a few for July 1, obviously, which is a big one but I think there's six or seven right now going to be floating around town," reported Mayor Heather Colberg. "I know personally, I've had inquiries on a few others. It is a program that I think we've allowed people that ability to be mobile."
"I think it's just a compliments as well to the actual brick and mortar buildings in the valley because it draws more people in," she added. "A lot of those people who, from what I understand, start in mobile vending end up in a brick and mortar."
The mobile food vendors are part of an effort to make Drumheller more attractive for both visitors and residents alike. Long term plans include a downtown plaza to give people a place to congregate.
"It's all about a test project this summer," stated Colberg. "Let's try it, we've got nothing to lose and let's see how it all works out in the end; and we're going to evaluate it in September."
