Why now? 

The food truck industry will reach $2.7 billion in revenue in 2017, making it one of the fastest-growing segments of the food-service industry. Despite the industry's success, unfavorable regulatory conditions in some cities are stalling the growth of food truck vendors. 

The U.S. Chamber Foundation is talking to food truck owners across the country about the unique regulatory challenges they face and how they can be improved. This unprecedented study of food trucks shines a light on the diverse set of rules affecting mobile vendors in different parts of the United States. By listening to the stories of food truck owners, we can help aspiring entrepreneurs identify the best cities to start and grow their food truck business. With access to better information, entrepreneurs are equipped with the tools they need to succeed.
