Food truck rules move towards finalization at Cape Coral


A decree inspired by the regulations of Lee County and Bonita Spring finally aims to regulate and set standards for food trucks in Cape Coral.

The city will establish minimum standards for both stationary and mobile food trucks and provide consequences for violations.

At the first public hearing on the decree on January 11, some members of the public opposed these changes.

“Why make it harder to start a business, let’s not add more barriers,” said Gabriel Denny, who strongly opposes the transportation of food trucks every day.

Another resident, Cathy Stout, worries about chasing food peddlers.

“If you make such a strict ordinance, you’re not only chasing small business owners, you’re also firing your community,” he said.
