Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Does this place operate legally? Is it subject to the same inspection requirements that are imposed on Florida restaurants that are "brick & mortar" or do food trucks operate under a different set of regulations? I want to open a Food Truck soon in Key West. It is my destiny! Anybody got a vacant spot in their back yard that I can occupy?
