On Saturday the Schenectady Gazette published a story about the recent growth of food trucks in the Albany area. We can't say we're surprised, as people want excellent food and a unique experience to go with it. That's why we're putting together food truck festivals - to celebrate this food niche!
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.
