  2. Got this in the e-mail this week. I know there are a lot of food truck fans on HAIF. And if you have any pictures of food trucks, send them to our sister site http://lunchtim.es e-mail editor@lunchtim.es Houston Mobile Food Units Seek Changes in City Regulations HOUSTON (August 29, 2012) – The Houston Mobile Food Unit (MFU) Collective will present City Council Members with stakeholder-driven Ordinance changes in September, which will further promote business growth and entrepreneurship in Houston. The proposed Ordinance changes will eliminate the 60-foot distance between Mobile Food Units; allow 1 propane (LP) permit to cover multiple locations; provide access to existing seating areas and provide limited seating of their own; lift the LP ban within the District of Limitations, opening up the downtown area for service. “Currently, propane use is restricted in Houston’s central business district, which limits most mobile food units from operating in the area. MFUs attract crowds and bring activity to the areas they occupy; the proposed Ordinance provides a unique opportunity to revitalize and reenergize spaces that could benefit from increased activity,” said Joanna Torok, co-owner of Oh my! Pocket Pies. In an effort to promote controlled industry growth, the Collective believes the Ordinance changes will strengthen Houston’s economy by directly contributing to the success of local businesses. The MFU business model offers affordable access to the city’s rich culinary culture. These changes will add to Houston’s current successful reputation in entrepreneurship, and will further increase the city’s standing as a desirable travel destination in Texas. “Houston has earned a reputation for supporting local establishments and fostering the growth of businesses, both large and small”, says Joe Phillips, co-owner of Oh my! Pocket Pies. “Approving changes to support mobile food units will directly contribute to the success of local, small businesses, and will allow them to grow, strengthening our city’s economy.“ The MFU Collective is scheduled to present the Ordinance to Mayor Parker and City Council Members on September 26, 2012. To support the ordinance, the MFU Collective suggests attending the City Council meeting, sending in a letter of support to the Mayor and Council Members, and signing the public petition at participating mobile food vendor locations. Additional information can be found online: www.MFUHouston.com # About Houston’s Mobile Food Unit (MFU) Collective We are a collection of micro-entrepreneurs looking to further increase our city’s unique and affordable food options and business successes.
