Food trailer restrictions loosened in Danville


DANVILLE (WSLS 10) – Food trailers may start popping up in Danville now that the city has loosened restrictions.

On Tuesday night, the Danville City Council voted to allow food trailers to park on the street in downtown, just like food trucks.

Up until Tuesday night, food trailers were required to be parked in a private lot and had to abide by zoning restrictions.

Harry Joyner, who owns Harry O’s BBQ in Yanceyville, North Carolina, which is about 15 minutes outside of Danville, said he’s been waiting for this opportunity for a long time.

“I was anxiously waiting. This was a long time coming, but I had faith in Danville and Danville City Council that they would do the right thing and approve for tow-behind trailers to come in,” Joyner explained.

Joyner says he’s not the only person excited.

“There is a big market for it,” Joyner said. “I’ve already heard from Danville citizens, they want to know when was Harry O’s coming to Danville.”

Currently, Joyner is considering setting up on Old Riverside Drive next to Grayz Carwash, but he’s not sure exactly when he’ll start operating there.
