food truck

Welcome Food Truck Operators

The Chicago Department of Aviation invites you to consider operating at our O'Hare International Airport and to serve the thousands of taxi drivers and limousine drivers who provide passenger transport to/from O'Hare every day, as well as airport personnel.


In order to operate your business at the airport please see the links below. Confident that you can operate within the rules and regulations, submit form and fee.

Participation in the program and/or payment of the access fee does not provide mobile food vendors with rights to participate in CDA’s airport concessions program.

Free diagnostic review



The City of Chicago’s Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection, offers a free diagnostic review of any food truck that desires to be licensed and operate under the City’s Mobile Food Truck Program.

Operators must be licensed under the mobile food truck program operated by the City of Chicago Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection, in order to operate at O’Hare.
