Omaha Sees Continued Food Truck Industry Growth

OMAHA, NE – It’s been about a year since the Omaha city council approved a list of food truck regulations. After so much discussion, back and forth arguments and sometimes controversy – nearly a year later there have been no complaints from the food truck owners. It’s still business as usual for many of them. In some cases, in downtown Omaha, business has been even better.

For the past year Omar Garrido has been frying up tacos, rolling up churros and blowing up business.

Garrido is the owner of The Churro Truck. He’s turned this once, part-time gig, into a full-time job. He started right around the time a new ordinance went into effect last year. The ordinance stated that food truck owners have to pay at least a $100 dollar licensing fee every year and potentially more depending on location.
