Ding, Ding: Chicago Food Truck Debate

Ding, Ding: Chicago Food Truck Debate

As we noted yesterday, WTTW the Chicago PBS network aired a debate on the Chicago ordinance which would allow food trucks to prepare meals to-go in these mobile kitchens. This ordinance has had coverage in The Wall Street Journal as well as other national media but we believe this may be the first face to face debate on the issue.

The debaters were Ald. Scott Waguespack, the aldermen responsible for the ordinance, Matt Maroni, the owner of the Gaztro Food Wagon, Dan Rosenthal, and Glenn Keefe, Chicago brick and mortar restaurant owners. For those of you not in the viewing area, we bring you the video of the debate in its entirety.

Please share your opinions on the debate. We would love to hear your thoughts.

Richard is an architect by degree (Lawrence Technological University, Southfield, Michigan) who began his career in real estate development and architectural planning. In September of 2010 he created Mobile Cuisine Magazine to fill an information void he found when he began researching how to start a mobile hotdog cart in Chicago. Richard found that there was no central repository of mobile street food information anywhere on the internet, and with that, the idea for MCM was born.
