    My Food truck will benefit the City of Providence in many ways.

    I am creating jobs!
    Paying taxes!
    I AND OTHER FOOD TRUCK OWNERS CAN AGREE we are bring true Entrepreneurship sprite to the city of Providence.

    After all Providence has stated that they are a pro small business city.

    Before a food truck can legally be on the streets of providence they also must pay a few hundred dollars in licenses to the city of providence.

    We cant park anywhere there is a meter so we are not in the way of anyone.

    I just want to share my amazing gourmet streets food to the city of providence.

    While providing the Providence area with Quality, Locally grown, Organic food, RADISH serves on a mobile basis at an affordable price.

    Plus we are creating about 20 Jobs per Truck.

    Hopefully you agree John bring food trucks to Providence wont be such a bad idea after all.

    There fun People love um.
