Very well said. Right now, that's one of the problems I have. There are a dozen taco trailers within a 15 mile radius, and then there's me. Out of all the vendors, mine and another are the only one's that are legal. The rest keep moving and only open on weekends, far out of the time limits of the inspector.

Take pics with time and date stamps and give them plate numbers. I would go as far as to confront them and let them know they are on the radar.

I'm done on roadside vending for the season. Looking at a trailer upgrade so there may be an approved trailer available here real soon. Just waiting on quotes on a 38' gooseneck that will have smokers mounted and lots of room for a steam table and lots of vending window space. Also full RV water system that would allow soda machine, etc.

Was looking to start roadside vending from a large ice cream store parking lot. Unfortunately, mobile food dispensing vehicles are not allowed to operate in my city or county.

Wish there was an easy way to determine localities where vending is allowed. Calling up ones county and then every municipality and speaking with permits and then zoning is a pain.

I can't wait to return and nor can my bank manager. Granted I still have a few months to go and only about three to get the job done but I'm chomping at the bit!

Just fired up half pint and running on empty to let the neighborhood know I'm still around. :)
