LOXAHATCHEE GROVES, FL – Celia Martinez says almost 15 years ago she moved her food truck business, Chela’s Mexican Food, to the Red Barn store parking lot on Okeechobee Boulevard. “I would like to stay here, this is my life.”
The business to support her and her children was doing well until last week. That’s when the town of Loxahatchee Groves told her food trucks are not allowed.
“I can’t understand what happened. I don’t know what I am going to do, I’m shocked,” she said.
Town officials said after receiving a complaint about three food trucks operating in town, Martinez and the other two businesses were warned: Leave or risk being fined $250 a day.
