Keep on Truckin’

Near the Mayo Clinic in downtown Rochester, Minn., restaurants compete for lunchtime business. Food trucks are banned on public streets, so the owners of the BB’s Pizzaria food truck got a spot in the driveway of a local church. Restaurant owners complained. “I pay an exorbitant amount of rent,” restaurant owner Deb VonWald said. “For a food truck to be able to outfit a truck and poach business wherever they can talk somebody into letting them be on their property is really frustrating.” The city council ruled that while the church owned the drive, the area past the sidewalk where the truck was parked was public land, so the owners had to leave. But BB’s came up with a different solution: they moved the truck back ten feet so that it was fully in the church’s half circle drive. (MS/Rochester Post-Bulletin) ...A miracle cure worthy of the Mayo Clinic.
