I'm all for competition but there is something to be said for level playing field.

Food tricks don't have to pay property taxes and utility costs at the same rate and are using public infrastructure for free.

Would it be fair for a printed tshirt vendor to setup tables on the side walk outside a printed tshirt shop? That's not competition, that's freeloading by pushing your infrastructure costs onto the public and avoiding taxes, fees, and other costs the brick and mortar business has to account for.

Food trucks should be zoned like temporary farmers markets are zoned.

A very well put together vid. Clever move on their behalf using the Game of Thrones theme because it'll probably make a lot more people watch the whole thing and listen to what they have to say.

Plus cupcake girl was cute.

Cupcakes aren't the only things you can get off of food trucks.

Their vehicles are registered. They paid the fee for that. They are also not personal vehicles, so the registration costs take into account that they are commercial vehicles. Brick & Mortar restaurants do not pay those fees.

They are inspected by health inspectors and must pay the fees for those inspections. They pay the same as a restaurant in that regard.

They pay for the public infrastructure they use (roads) by paying exactly the same amount that any other commercial vehicle would pay for the use of that infrastructure via taxes on fuel. Thus they do not use the public infrastructure for free.

So it seems to me that your complaints are invalid. You might as well complain that a restaurant which has standing bars for eating is also not competing fairly with sit down restaurants because they can serve more people with less square footage and therefore pay less property tax. Maybe there should be a minimum amount of time that each patron must sit at a table to avoid the unfair advantages enjoyed by eateries whose customers eat their food in less than 30 minutes?

In short:

If your restaurant is so god damned crappy that you can be outperformed by a food truck, then the food truck is doing a service shutting your lousy ass business down.

In short:

No place to wash your hands.

No place to use a bathroom.

So, basically, the toilet is where they cook.

Hey, go ahead, eat where you shiat. I will pass on that.

So vote Republican?

If you consider vehicle registration fees equal to the costs of a building, you may be a moron. Ask your doctor if euthanasia is right for you.

Sanitary stations on trucks, public restrooms, so, no.

Well, maybe that is true in New York...
