It provides similar service to fast food outlet- serving convenient, quick, tasty and mouth-watering food. Mobile food truck operates using miniature commercial kitchen and therefore it must meet the state’s sanitation requirements of a brick-and-mortar restaurant. Furthermore, the mobile food truck operators must comply with the additional local ordinances. Recent study found that there was an encouraging demand from the consumer for this type of food service.
