COLLINS – Why downtown food trucks if you can’t get to them?

I’VE NEVER BEEN a food truck kind of guy. My work place just isn’t conducive to checking out food trucks at breaks or at lunch.

collins-colhedBut I’ve been following the food truck debate in council fairly closely because I’ve always liked the concept of the hot dog stands at some shopping locations around town, and having some of the specialty foods that food trucks make their living from.

So it intrigued me that the food truck owners seemed happy with recent developments at council that would provide better opportunities to have more food trucks available in the downtown, where they would be well used. At least theoretically.

  1. . So far , the rules for Food Trucks, seem to be more about protecting brick & mortar restaurants than anything else. it is time that these B&M establishments learn to adapt, and compete rather than trying to stay protected by council.
