Food vans and trucks that have been serving Wagga since the start of the year have been given additional time to trade as a final council vote on their future looms.
Wagga councillors this week voted to extend the mobile food vehicle trial until August 15, noting that the nine participating businesses had built up a loyal customer base.
Wagga's Woodfire Wagon owner Jay Vidler, who has been selling pizzas by the roadside during the trial, said he was glad to hear of the extension.
"I think it's a great decision given that the overall policy (to make the trial terms permanent) will take several months to come into play, if it were to become policy," he said.
"It is going to help with a smooth transition if the decision goes ahead.
"It allows our staff to remain in employment during the summer and winter period."
Lucid Kombi Cafe owner Emma Moss, who this week was selling coffee during the morning at Lake Albert, said the trial "had gone so well for us".
"It is definitely starting to account for a lot of our income," she said.
"If the (permanent food truck rules) get approved, it will ensure the longevity of Lucid as a business.
"Our biggest fear was for the trial to come to an end while that decision was still being made and our regulars would get out of the routine of coming to us."
Ms Moss said mobile food was "a new thing in Wagga" and "it took us a while to build a following".
"People weren't use to pulling up to the side of the road and getting coffee from a Kombi van," she said.
"Our goal was to cater for under-served markets like Estella and Lake Albert and by no means do we want to infringe on anyone else."
During a debate on extending the trial during Tuesday's meeting, Cr Kerry Pascoe said he had visited one of the food trucks and he had seen "three young people working hard" and "not disturbing anyone" or other businesses.
Cr Paul Funnell said he was "wrong" in his previous level of concern for bricks and mortar hospitality.
