    At Bruce Taylor’s store at W. Lane Avenue and Kenny Road, he offers everything from convenience-store goods and U-Haul truck rentals to auto repair.Now he has added a pavilion so food trucks can congregate at Campus Pitt Stop, 868 W. Lane Ave.

    Will have to head over there today. Pretty cool to have a pod closer to campus. The mom&pop nature of this one appeals to me.

    There appears to be no overhead to pass onto customers/cut into vendor’s profits. I guess that means no amenities either, but I usually bring truck food home or to work, where I can enjoy the beverage of my choice, anyway.

    This is a good spot. The amenities issue is tricky – it can depend on who owns the amenity. Current interpretation is that trucks, carts and trailers can not have chairs, stools, tables, etc., outside or associated with their business….but if another business nearby owns them and customers just happen to walk over there….no problem.

    This is a good mix of vendors so I think this spot will do well over time.

    That seems like a rule that should be changed. As long as the ‘amenities’ aren’t blocking a public right of way it doesn’t seem it should be an issue. Does this have more to do with protectionism for b&ms?

    It is a zoning issue.
