Good news for those of you who love food on wheels: the city council passed the ordinance that lifts restrictions on food trucks. I’m looking forward to mobile tacos in Memphis soon.
Under current law, food trucks can only sell their customers pre-packaged food, but a proposed ordinance, sponsored by Ald. Scott Waguespack of the 32nd Ward, seeks to allow vendors to prepare their product inside their trucks, as long as they abide by specific health standards.
The food truck scene in Chicago, relatively in the newbie stage compared to other American cities, is awaiting city council approval of a “Mobile Food Facilities” ordinance.
It seems that tailored food safety regulations are closely following behind what has become a nationwide phenomenon: food trucks. Santa Monica is the latest municipality to adopt health standards specific to the trendy food establishments-on-wheels.
The dream of mobile food trucks operating on the streets of Chicago took a big step toward reality back in July.
