An unresolved permit issue has left the owner of a local food truck begging for action.

“I want to do it here, very badly,” said Chris Hodgson from Dim & Den Sum. The Cleveland-based food truck has been in operation for a year, but the rolling restaurant was sidelined by the city after Chris discovered his paid permits aren’t good enough.

“We have a permit to be servicing food in Ward 3,” said Hodgson. “However, it has come to our attention there’s a little part that says ‘no CBD.’ I don’t know what CBD means, we know now it means Central Business District, that’s all of downtown.”

Hodgson has been waiting for the city to change the law. Ward 3 Councilman Joe Cimperman tells FOX 8, “The city loves Dim & Den Sum and food trucks, but we’re dealing with a licensing policy from the 1950’s that’s now being converted to make it up to date.

“Last year,” said Hodgson, “It was pretty much the same thing, that we’re introducing legislation, we’re working on it and a year later, we’re listed in Business Week, Food & Drink, as one of the top ten trucks in America and we’re not even allowed to be on the streets in Cleveland.”
