Mobile food trucks ready to bring variety to Horry County

Karl Moser has a county-issued sticker to obtain the first permit to operate Horry County’s mobile food truck, and rightfully so.

The entrepreneur was the pioneer that prompted the Horry County Council to consider bringing the wildly popular business model around the nation to Horry County -- with the council finally approving the trucks last week after 18 months of work and debate.

“That’s already reserved,” Moser said of the first permit. “That’s mine.”

The food truck issue began in November 2013 after Moser sought to expand his business into the county. Horry County policy did not permit mobile food trucks, but allows push carts.
