Gourmet food trucks have been popping up everywhere, and recently they have become increasingly popular in Salt Lake City.
Julie Sheehan cooks out of and drives Torta Truck, her Italian-food business that she started in November, a few months after Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker gave public assurances that the city’s food-truck ordinances would be loosened.
Gourmet food trucks have been driving the culinary scene in Los Angeles, New York City and other metropolitan areas for several years. Salt Lake City joined the trend in 2010 with one truck that sells Asian tacos and sliders and another that sells cupcakes.
Food-truck culture is slowly rolling into Kansas City, four wheels at a time. The Good You opened in December and began parking next to 3 Girls Cupcakes, which has been wheeling around since last year.
