The food truck craze has swept the nation, but currently, Chicago’s laws have imposed limitations on mobile chefs. The law that passed in July, continues to make it illegal for food trucks to operate within 200 feet of any fixed business that serves food. The fines for violating the 200-foot rule are up to $2,000—ten times higher than for parking in front of a fire hydrant. Further, the city is forcing food trucks to install GPS tracking devices that broadcast the trucks’ every move.
Illinois Food Truck Association is a community of food truck operators, supporting the well being of mobile food vendors, and reforming restrictions so food trucks may flourish in Chicago.
