(Houston, TX) -- A new study rates Houston above average in terms of regulatory burdens on those who want to open a new food truck business. The yearlong study from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation ranked Houston sixth out of the 20 cities it reviewed.
The study's criteria included permits and licenses, plus various restrictions. For a city with no zoning, Houston got some complaints about regulations about where food trucks can operate, such as distance from restaurants and other food trucks, and a prohibition on street parking.
The study's number-one city was Portland, Oregon. Boston was dead last.
