Franklin officials chew over where to allow mobile food carts

If you want a hot dog for lunch, dinner or at 1 a.m. in downtown Franklin, one city resident wants to be there with his food cart.

The only problem is that city rules haven’t caught up with the new trend of mobile food vendors, including food trucks. So right now, under city rules, Leon Joiner can set up his cart only on private property.

But Franklin officials are considering changing that rule to allow food carts or trucks to be able to set up on sidewalks or roadways downtown to give workers and visitors more options on where to grab something to eat.
