A proposed food truck version of Blue Point’s popular Flo’s Famous Luncheonette was rejected recently by the Patchogue Village Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA).

The rejection was publicly announced at Tuesday’s Village Board of Trustees meeting, but a reason for the rejection was not given.

Patch will update when it has more information, but a April ZBA meeting regarding what would of been “Flo’s On The Go” was attended by several local business owners and residents who were openly against the truck.

They cited issues such as the business not taking a traditional retail spot on Main Street and its 70 Lake Street location across from Briarcliffe College near some residences. Some of the business owners felt that the ruling over the truck would have set a Village precedent, and said they would consider converting their businesses to a truck model to avoid costs.

Had the eatery been approved, owners David and Connor Vigliotta told Patch in April that it would of been a 18 by 7 foot truck with two to three staff members serving the majority of the Flo’s menu.
