Charlotte Food_truckCHARLOTTE, NC – Mobile food truck owners want Charlotte officials to lessen regulations on their business.

David Stuck opened the Tin Kitchen food truck when he moved to Charlotte from Portland, Ore.

“Food trucks like this really add to the vibrancy of a city and the rules do need to be loosened up so people can enjoy them during evening activities,” said customer Ellen Engelhardt.

Stuck said stiff city rules can sometimes make business stale.

Food trucks can’t park with 400 feet of another truck, restaurant or residence.

“If you’re parking right in front of their entrance that can cause problems with taking business from them,” said customer Edwin Thompson.

Mobile food vendors can only operate between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m.
