An article today in the Wall Street Journal speaks to the battle that’s starting between food trucks and traditional bricks and mortar restaurants. Traditional restaurants are feeling the squeeze by the innovative food truck entrepreneurs. Several cities in the U.S. and have enacted challenging parking laws and time restrictions for food trucks. With the popularity and demand for easy to access street food, more issues will no doubt emerge. Here is a link to the story http://ow.ly/cT2H8
Toronto City Council recently voted to expand the menus of Hot Dog carts to include some pre-packaged items. As the demand number of food trucks continues to grow in Toronto, we will continue to support the vendors and hopefully get support from Toronto City Council with issues such as parking and designated area for the trucks.
