Qualicum Beach approves waterfront mobile vendor licences

Waterfront will have multiple food vendors this summer

Food and recreational mobile vendors will once again operate at the Qualicum Beach waterfront this summer.

Town council approved three mobile vendors, with a fourth vendor’s application still pending.

Staff had received applications from food vendors The Knockananna Grill, Gypsy Soul Food and Extreme Eatz; recreational vendor Dragon S.U.P (stand-up paddleboard) Adventures; and retail vendor Deb’s Dangly Bits.

Staff recommended that council approve mobile vending business licences to The Knockananna Grill, Extreme Eatz and Dragon S.U.P. Adventures. For Gypsy Soul Food, staff recommend council issue a licence once staff approve the appearance of the truck, as the owners are currently having signage applied, according to a report from planning director Luke Sales in the April 16 agenda.

Staff recommended council refuse a licence for Deb’s Dangly Bits, hand-crafted mobiles from beachcombing. In the report, Sales said the intention of the mobile vending licences is to provide recreational and food opportunities rather than retail space along the waterfront.

Council voted in favour of all three motions.

The vendor trucks will be clustered in an empty lot next to the Sand Pebbles Inn (2751 Island Hwy. W).
