Cart Spaces for Rent

alberta-for-rent

Spotted on NE Alberta Street between 15th and 14th next to an auto repair shop. Although I have no other info, it would be great to have some more carts on Alberta St. Except, no more Mexican or Thai eateries please, the street is already swarming with those choices. My ideas?

  • Vietnamese Pho and Noodle Bowls
  • Indian Food
  • Ethiopian or African
  • Kebabs /Falafel/ Gyros/ Middle Eastern

  1. is this space still available? i didn’t see this empty lot after I ate at the Grill Cheese Grill

  2. help.anybody know of any new spaces for rent?

  3. Hi Ryan,

    Cart spaces generally don’t get advertised or listed like normal commercial leasing opportunities. Your best bet is to look at geographic areas you like, check the zoning and approach the owner of the property. Many owners of commercial properties might be more than willing to lease out space to a cart. Expect to pay anywhere between $200-$700 per month, and don’t forget to negotiate for things like water, electricity and garbage.

    Good luck!

  4. HI. How would you go about checking the zoning and then approaching the owner?

  5. I would recommend calling the number listed.

  6. Chris. http://www.portlandmaps.com

    Numbers aren’t listed, but I do think Multnomah County has them on record.

  7. You can find out zoning of a specific property at portlandmaps.com — this is an official city-run site using city,county, etc GIS data. Search for the address, then click on “Maps” on upper right hand side of page to pull up a zoning map. If you click on the underlined zone type, it takes you to the code that explains what is allowable in that zone.

    You also could check out the pods around town and see if any of them seem to have extra spaces or vacant carts. The ones near SW 9th/wash seem to change frequently, but I know there were issues there with the electricity — don’t know if that was resolved.

  8. Mr. Nuevo Mexico says:

    City Center Parking are in charge of most of the downtown lots. The guy in charge is Al. His number is 503-803-3959. He will run down a list of addresses downtown that have spots available.

  9. I have a property on SE Division (near Stumptown Coffee) and I am considering lease out a portion of the site to a few food carts. If you know anyone interested have them send me an email at pdxfoodcarts@gmail.com. Thanks

  10. Hey Rob hope all is well, i just started a cart on 3rd and Stark and am looking for another site for one more cart, we feature all American fusion funky burgers and sandwiches that are huge to the belly, so what is your property like and what are you thinking about lease options????

  11. Hey Stellas,
    How did you get the spot on 3rd and stark? That’s where we want to be. Any info on the owner, prices, etc.? Thanks.

  12. If any of you are feeling a bit crowded in Portland I know of a great location on TV Highway.

    Plenty of walk-up and drive by traffic and plenty of parking.

    The owner is looking to get the place rented right away so he is willing to negotiate first months rent etc.

    If you are interested email Max at tvhwyfoodcarts@gmail.com

  13. Hey all,
    Well, I’m hoping that Portland has enough room for a new food cart with a great idea. The one problem is that we don’t have a space. We were working on one, but it seems as if it’s falling through. We are approaching spots we like, but wanted to put it out there to the FCP community to see if anyone knows of anything.
    Thanks,
    Heather

  14. other food choices says:

    what about american homestyle cooking?
    would that be a good choice?

  20. I am looking for a location for a food cart near PSU. Any ideas?

  21. im hoping someone can give me an estimate of what a food cart space costs on average

  22. Bradford Brooke Howes says:

    @ Nate. Rent is 500.00 a month including electric. The other costs depend on your product and systems. First and last rent is all you need to get in. Electric hook up is 1,000 to 2,000. And then the bills really start. Good luck. P.S. get ready to work 80 hour weeks.

  23. hi looking for space food cart available papo ba for ICE SCRAMBLE…? and how much po ung rent and ung deposit po?

  24. Hey everyone, in case someone is still looking for a space, we have one on Belmont which is just starting up. We are already established on 700 SE 39th St, but are losing our lease which made us have to move. The new place is in a high profile area on Belmont. If you are interested in vending there, we would like to get around $550, which includes hookups to sewer and electricity.

  26. Greetings Food Cart Crusaders,

    We’re opening a craft brewery in the inner SE, and we want YOU! and your top-notch food cart.

    Here at Base Camp Brewing Co., we’re focused on creating awesomely exciting and innovative lagers and ales, never compromising on quality and flavor. As OLCC requires, we’ll be providing a limited menu of taproom snacks, but we’d rather concentrate on making beer!

    We see this as a great opportunity to showcase Portland’s incredible food-cart culture. Base Camp brings in a steady stream of hungry beer-lovin’ foodies, you provide them with delicious sustenance, and BOOM! everyone happily profits.

    If your forte is wood-fired pizza, awesome sandwiches, or delicious empanadas, and your mantra is “Local, fresh, and delicious,” then we’d love to hear from you!

    Shoot me an email at:
    info@basecampbrewingco.com

    Thank you thank you thank you all!
    - Joey

  37. Jack Mayhew says:

    Hello,
    I own an Alberta commercially zoned space next to my house. I’m thinking of having a nice pod of food carts. I picture a small pod of three or four carts. The advantage of my space is the great central Alberta location, plus there is space for a quiet, intimate garden area for outdoor eating like the Tin Shed Restaurant has. (I am a block from The Tin Shed) Please message me with questions. I’m in initial stages of this. If I find interested parties who are a good fit I am open to moving quickly. Regards, and fun carting!
