Chicago Wins Food Truck Fight, But The Shrinking City May Come To Regret Its Protectionism

Food trucks are an American culinary phenomenon, revolutionizing both how we eat and what we eat. The low cost of food truck ownership allows food entrepreneurs to take risks and sell creative foods that may be too niche to succeed in a brick-and-mortar location. For instance, one of the earliest big food truck successes was Korean tacos, a work of fusion cuisine by L.A. chef Roy Choi. Innovative cuisine made him a celebrity chef with several restaurants and even a movie based on the food truck movement he helped kick off.
