It always makes me nervous when City, State, or Federal officials take the side of one business, or industry over another. Competition is a healthy part of the marketplace and the real beneficiaries of competition are the consumer. Unfortunately, Los Angeles City Councilman Paul Koretz disagrees.
A quote from Councilman Koretz concerning food trucks, “A lot of businesses in stationary, permitted locations feel it’s unfair competition, and I tend to agree with them,” Koretz said. “There have been problems with these trucks popping up in front of businesses and people’s homes. They’re less of a nuisance in one lot, but I’m not thrilled with that either. I think they work well at construction sites where it’s difficult for workers to have access to other food, but I think that should be their only place in the city.” (Article:)
Councilman Koretz thinks food trucks should be limited to construction sites? He believes that it’s unfair competition? Councilman Paul Koretz is calling the trucks a nuissance.
