Regulatory Hurdles for Albany Area Food Truck Growth

If someone in the Albany area mentions the term food truck, you are likely to think of the trucks down behind the capitol, and perhaps maybe one isolated truck that parks regularly in a downtown of another city. As food trucks gain popularity nationwide, the patchwork quilt of laws and regulations in the Albany area isn’t helping their growth. 

As Food Truck Festival approaches in Troy, we have been getting to know a lot of food truck vendors quite well and among the things we talk about are the challenges they face in getting their business up and running in good locations. All Over Albany did an excellent rundown of the different laws and regulations that are, in many cases, inconsistent from one city to another.

We are obvious supporters of food trucks and the entire culture that goes with them One of the greatest things about living in the Albany area is the way we celebrate the summer. We have countless seasonal businesses that are specific to summer, which open in early spring and hang on as far into fall as they can. While food trucks could operate all year, summer is prime time for them. Having more food trucks in more places only enhances the experience of living and working in the Albany area.

Hopefully at some point Albany, Schenectady, Troy, Saratoga, and all points in-between can come together at some sort of summit and come up with a set of universal rules for food trucks, in order to help grow our local economy and help entrepreneurs grow!
