Food Truck Wars: Dispatches from the Front(s)
For more than two years, a number of us (Ken, Jamie, Matt, and Chad) have blogged about food trucks (usually just around lunchtime). Here are some articles updating the situation in Chicago and other cities.
The Wall Street Journal reported on legislation and reponsive litigation involving food trucks back in August: Food Trucks vs. Restaurants (if paywall prevents access, try this Lexis link)
and again yesterday, focusing on legal advocacy efforts by the Institute for Justice: Street Vendors Battle Limits (Lexis link)
Earlier this month, the Chicago Tribune published a story on dissatisfaction among the portable vendors with the food truck ordinance Chicago enacted last year.
"Nothing cooking on food trucks \ Since legalization in July, no one has met city's standard" (Lexis link)
