You said "keep cook a catering truck" - if you meant cooking in it while parked, that is going to make it a lot harder to find a place.

I don't know what sort of "certification" you are looking from a garage - but presumably you store some of the food in it overnight (not sure if you mean "catering" or a food truck here) so need a secure parking spot (not just a parking garage for instance), and probably also need power connection for reefer/freezer operation, so a couple of types of locations come to mind:

1) a large commercial building with secure (usually lowest level) fenced long-term parking in their parking garage, with overnight and weekend security. you city might have a licensing/permitting registry of such places - also google your locale name plus a phrase like - secure parking

2) an auto repair shop with lots of indoor space - some rent parking space indoors at night (moving the truck out in the morning to their adjacent parking lot, then back in at night/weekend when they are closed). But would only be accessible during normal working hours, which for a catering business is likely not acceptable. plus you risk them forgetting to plug it in when they repark it, and no power whenn outdoors.

3) a towing compoany which has fenced impound yard - though if not open 24/7 might still be an access issue, and would have to arrange for power.

4) rent some local homeowner's garage, electricity included.

5) if in-garage commercial vehicle parking is allowed in your area, build a cheap garage on your property, if you own a house and have room on the lot for one

6) move to a place with a garage large enough
