Become a Member
One of the best investments you can make when operating or starting a food truck is to join a food truck association. We represent you and other owners at the local and state level of government, provide member benefit programs and offer invaluable industry contacts, information, and a knowledge base that can help you be more efficient and profitable in this very competitive industry.
STEP 1: Application
The PMFA reserves the right to deny membership to any applicant. Application and payment are not a guarantee of membership. Additionally, the association reserves the right to revoke (with prorated refund), the membership of any member, at its own discretion. Association members are expected to positively represent the mobile food industry. Association members are expected to work professionally with other vendors, government officials, and to support (and not in any way undermine or hamper), the overall mission and efforts of the association. Association full members are expected to have a valid health license from a governing authority.
I HEREBY AGREE, to make every reasonable effort to positively represent the mobile food industry, including being in compliance with all state and local laws, ordinances, rules and regulations pertaining to mobile food vending and safe food handling practices. As a full member of the Philadelphia Mobile Food Association (PMFA), I understand that I must have a valid health license from a governing authority. I understand and acknowledge that my membership in the PMFA can be denied, or terminated, at any time for failure to uphold these standards.
