Local restauranteur Taylor Berger and attorney Michael Tauer, business partners in the planned Truck Stop restaurant to be located at Central and Cooper, have withdrawn their application to appeal for a temporary use permit to operate food trucks on their site while they await construction permits.

The pair had hoped to operate a bare-bones food truck court at the Central and Cooper location since it will be at least a year before the Truck Stop's permanent building, to be created from cargo vessels, will be built and open for business.

They applied for a temporary use permit to operate the court this summer, but that was denied
by the Memphis and Shelby County Office of Code Enforcement. Berger said last Friday that they were planning to appeal the code enforcement office's decision at a Board of Adjustment meeting on June 25th. But Berger and Tauer have now withdrawn their application to appeal.

Once the construction permit process is complete, the original plan — with the permanent structure, new sidewalks, and street trees — approved by the Board of Adjustment in January will move forward. Truck Stop will operate as a hybrid food truck court/restaurant concept. Food will be served from both the permanent Truck Stop building and a rotating cast of local food trucks. Customers can dine inside or on a large patio on the back of the property.
