They do all this to maximize profits.

Rolling With the Punches: Food Truck Winners and Losers | C.E. Project | Scoop.it

It’s safe to say that culinary Washington pays more attention to Twitter feeds announcing food truck locations than to Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs regulatory dumps. But last Friday’s release of proposed new vending rules may have been an exception.

So a big debate going on in washington is Food trucks regulations. Restaurants dont like how they have all these strict regulations, when a food truck can pull up to any parking spot and start vending. They are stealing restaurants customers due to the fact that a food truck can pull right in front of the restaurant and start selling there food and only have to worry about getting a parking ticket.
