The sooner the better, I say. Chicago needs to legalize these new-generation food trucks, and here’s why:
We already have food trucks; we just need some good ones. Technically, food trucks are already legal, provided they dispense food that was prepared in a licensed commercial kitchen. This is why we already have the Flirty Cupcake truck, dispensing baked goodies to a growing fan base, and various lunch trucks delivering pre-made food to construction sites.
This is an excerpt from a Phil Vettel piece about food trucks in Chicago (a subject you should read up on by the way). The link urging you to get home delivery of the Tribune is, of course, not part of the story. However, these gentle little reminders have been popping up all over the Tribune’s web copy. At first I thought it was a good idea, but now I find it jarring and disruptive to the reading experience. But maybe that’s just me. What’s your take?
