Food & Drink Digital's February 2012 Issue Explores the Ins and Outs of Food Truck Regulation and How to Get Your Business Fit for the Road

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 22, 2012) - But once the fun parts of opening a food truck are out of the way, there are still some technical details that can't be ignored. Food trucks are subject to health codes and inspections quite similar to brick-and-mortar restaurants, and a disregard for the law can leave your business out in the cold. But we want you to succeed! So this month we talked to Ricardo Encarnacion, Environmental Health Specialist at the County of San Diego Department of Environmental Health, for a few pointers that every future food truck entrepreneur should know when getting started.

"It's a great, innovative way that we've seen retail food industry adhere to the laws of the people, and people enjoy this type of food service," says Encarnacion, expressing a true appreciation for the city's growing food truck culture. "We're here to be in partnership with industry to ensure that you not only have a good experience in getting into the business, but know the rules to make sure that your customers have a safe and good time."
