No. 7: Food trucks
As more cities revise regulations that previously restricted food trucks, the number of meals being served on wheels is rapidly increasing. Fueled by consumer support, the popularity of food trucks is moving across cities, large and small. While not all municipalities are treating food trucks equally, some existing restaurants — and the celebrity chefs within them — are capitalizing on the trend by rolling out food trucks as an extension of their brand. As policy makers continue to iron out the details of food truck regulations, the trend continues to expand as more entrepreneurs hit the road.
