Miami’s laws make it impossible for food trucks to operate outside of special events. The city prohibits trucks from parking in public parking lots and metered and unmetered parking spaces. This seriously hurts the food trucks’ ability to earn an honest living, and is denying Miami’s communities of the many benefits of food trucks. The trucks shouldn’t be limited to operating at scheduled special events—they should be able to roam freely in the city, only restricted by legitimate public health and safety regulations.

Anthony Fellows is the owner of the HipPOPs food truck, from which he sells fresh, made-to-order, all natural gelato bars. They are enormously popular—even Andrew Zimmern of Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods sang their praises. Anthony said, “I’d love to bring my creative confections to my customers—after all, we’re on wheels—but sadly, Miami law makes that impossible … not being able to vend in the streets of Miami has been a huge roadblock.” “If the streets were opened up to food trucks, the possibilities for success would be limitless,” he continued.
Miguel Kristaly owns The Health Nut on Wheels. A competitive athlete since he was a teenager, Miguel now sells high-quality, sustainable meals perfect to re-energize someone after a work-out. Miguel said, “Food trucks have great potential to make Miami and the rest of South Florida an even better place to live. Since we’re on four wheels, we can better reach and serve neighborhoods that don’t have so many dining options. By cooking up mouthwatering dishes, we expand consumer choice.”
