Every fool thinks they have what it takes to run a food truck. But in reality, theres tons more to the gig than simply flipping Bulgogi burgers, and sitting behind the wheel of graphics-wrapped rig. To help demystify the practice, and all the snags and trappings that go with it, the Philadelphia Mobile Food Association is teaming with University of Pennsylvania's Legal Clinic at its first meeting of the year next week to present a series of seminars related to owning and operating a food truck business in Philadelphia. Its open to all PMFA members, those who want to be members, and anyone with an interest in running a food truck. Keep reading for registration information, and the full schedule of seminars.
