There's been an ongoing food truck craze in many places across the country, but things have been a little more muted here in Sarasota. In fact, operators like Michelle Boomhauer say city and county rules are preventing the food trucks from operating.
"The rules do hinder our business. I can't pull up my truck and just work every day. I'm limited to working at markets right now," Boomhauer says. "I can't even pull up to a business that asks me to [operate] without the permission of the landlord, and sometime the landlord's are scared of code enforcement coming down on them," said Boomhauer.
