GPS & Tape-measure on board!

Why would a Chicago food truck need a GPS and tape measure? Because of red tape!

Chicago food truck owners know a thing or two about perseverance. They have to, in order to get their permits. They often find themselves mired in red tape Ė excessive regulations that dictate how they run their business.

What's at the heart of these regulations? Protecting customers?

Maybe. Maybe not. Consider that a food truck caught parking within 200 feet of any establishment that sells food, from a white-tablecloth upscale restaurant to a gas station convenience store, faces a $2000 fine. Picking food up off the floor and serving it to a customer is only a $250 fine. So what's the real story here?

Order lunch as we talk to these entrepreneurs and learn about competition, lobbying, special interest groups, and what may be behind the roadblocks they often encounter.
