Food trucks may no longer have to have a home base


Date: Monday, July 23, 2012, 1:09pm EDT




The state of Florida may no longer require mobile food trucks to have a “commissary,” or home-base restaurant, if they’re fully self-sufficient.
Currently, the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulations Division of Hotels and Restaurants requires food trucks and theme park food carts to have a commissary, even when they’re fully self-sufficient. The food trucks go to the commissary daily to get rid of garbage, prep and store food, etc.
The department is accepting comments until Aug. 10. To weigh in on the proposed rule, contact:
Michelle Comingore, Operations Review Specialist, Division of Hotels and Restaurants, Department of Business and Professional Regulation, 1940 North Monroe Street, Tallahassee, Florida 32399,
(850)488-1133, Michelle.Comingore@dbpr.state.fl.us
For the latest on Central Florida food trucks, check out the newest stop on the Food Truck Bazaar's itinerary.

Food Truck Wars is Back!!!!


Food Truck Wars II  - the Battle Rages On



Florida Foodies will have a 2nd chance to experience FOOD TRUCK WARS July 15th, 2012
FOOD TRUCK WARS II will be held July 15th, 2012 at Cranes Roost Park / Uptown Altamonte in Altamonte Springs, Florida.
40 Gourmet Food Trucks from all over the State will be on site to compete once again in 6 categories. There will be some new trucks debuting and some from the 1st round seeking revenge.

The competition has been extended this round to include your Favorite Desserts along with the original categories of Peoples Choice Award, Top Sales, Largest Single Food Item, Chefs Taste Off, and the Most Fun Food Truck Appearance.
The Altamonte Springs Optimist Club will be at the event working along with the shows promoters to raise money in support of its’ local charities.
The phenomenon of Gourmet Food Truck rivalry (all in the name of good fun, of course) has been a Huge Hit. At the inaugural event in March 2012 an estimated 30,000 people turned up. 37 food trucks sold out of food completely. How much food can 30,000 people eat?How about a 4 foot x 3 foot trough of nachos, 40 lbs of Gator 40 lbs of shrimp. In addition to an amazing event, food trucks and foodies donated over $3,000 through the Oviedo Optimist Club.
“Food Truck Wars I was an amazing experience” said Liz Otts, President of Food Truck Crazy, Inc “and Food Truck Wars II will be event better.
