Restaurants Fed Up with Food Trucks in San Francisco
It seems that restaurants and food truck aren't getting along so well these days. In San Francisco the trucks are stealing the regular restaurant business, and the brick and mortars and feeling the loss pretty hard. Stacy Finz at the San Francisco Chronicle has the story:
At first, the Tempest Bar's Tony Cooney welcomed Off The Grid, a convergence of five to six food trucks that parked several feet away from his Natoma Street restaurant every Wednesday.
"Our lunch crowd was down by about 75 percent," he said. "But it was cool. They were bringing people to the area and it was good for the community."
But when Off The Grid's food trucks began coming on Fridays, too, Cooney's business plummeted to the point of serious concern.
