The state of Florida may no longer require mobile food trucks to have a “commissary,” or home-base restaurant, if they’re fully self-sufficient.
Currently, the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulations Division of Hotels and Restaurants requires food trucks and theme park food carts to have a commissary, even when they’re fully self-sufficient. The food trucks go to the commissary daily to get rid of garbage, prep and store food, etc.
The department is accepting comments until Aug. 10. To weigh in on the proposed rule, contact:
