A new weekly food truck festival begins in Akron this week, which could lead to a relaxing of the current rules.
The food trucks will be at Cascade Plaza in downtown Akron on Wednesdays, near the main library and the FirstEnergy building. Few of the trucks have been visiting downtown since the city enacted stricter rules in 2014. But those may be revisited if the summer “Cascade Cucina” is a success.
Shannon Brends owns The Slop Truck, and says the timing is right for the program.
