Mobile Food Vendor Madness!

4/6/2010:

Non-competing food trucks chased away daily!

Hoboken411 reader “CL” is a bit miffed that some new mobile food trucks are getting hassled constantly…

“I was waiting for my food at The Taco Truck this afternoon, when two Hoboken policemen arrived and said that the Spa Diner owner had complained, again, and told them that they’d have to move the truck. I asked how many times this has happened and they said that they’d lost count. The Cinnamon Snail guy has been similarly harassed by the Spa Diner owner, and has been ticketed because of the Spa complaints.

I think it’s time to organize a boycott of the Spa Diner. The Spa doesn’t even serve Tacos or Vegan food of any type, why does he feel so threatened by a couple of guys who are trying to make an honest living by gving us more choices?”

Poll: What’s your take on the food trucks?

This makes little sense as the Spa Diner seems incapable of efficiently handling their present volume.

Must be insane to see customers handing money to another business right from your own window. I’m sure if the economy was bustling, they’d to too busy counting their own money to have time to call the police.

I’m way ahead of you with the Spa boycott.

Are we sure these trucks are licensed and pay taxes? Should they be permitted to take up a metered parking space? This kind of tension between restaurants and food wagons is nothing new. I think Spa has a point however the fact that they don’t really compete directly makes Spa seem a little heavy-handed.

I see food trucks all over Manhattan, so how does NYC do it? Some type of vendor fee? Do they want to get rid of Mr. Softie too?
