WHY DO YOU KEEP SAYING "A.L.T.A."? WHAT IS ALTA? "A.L.T.A." Alliance of Local and Touring Artists and it's Lopiez artist support program and way of supporting the artists and charities of the Quad Cities and beyond.
IS THERE A MINIMUM FOR A FOOD TRUCK EVENT? Yes, our food/bev minimum for all events starts at $750 and can go up from there depending the number of anticipated guests. (80% of confirmed guests). For Hosted events, additional service charges, sales tax, & travel fee may apply.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 'HOSTED', 'PRIVATE', AND 'PUBLIC' EVENTS? Basically, it’s just who is paying for stuff. A Hosted event is paid for in full by the event host and the event guests can keep their wallets tucked away. For both Private and Public events, each guest will pay for her own grub. The difference is a Private event is for invited guests only (for example, a company party) while a Public event is open to everybody (such as a carnival or street fair).
IS THERE A TRAVEL FEE?
For events that are outside the Quad Cities area, we may charge a travel/mileage fee to cover labor, utilities and fuel. For events within the Quad Cities metro area there is no travel fee.

DO I NEED TO PROVIDE A PERMIT FOR LOPIEZ TO CATER MY EVENT? We are licensed in Davenport, Bettendorf, the City of Rock Island and East Moline and many other cities and counties in the Quad Cities area may require a permit for food trucks.
