Maybe freeloading isn't the right word, since trucks have to pay for a space. But it seems a majority of food trucks only come out for the food truck rallys. Short Order put a blog post. A couple of weeks ago the for a Friday round up 40 trucks were attending and 33 were put on a waiting list. Did the other 33 trucks spread out across Miami and open? No. Do most of the trucks go out if there isn't a rally? No. Are food trucks making money hands over fist at these rallys so they only have to work 2-4 days a week?
Now I know there are problems with parking. In a twitter post BurgerBeast said the South Miami and Coral Gables are off limits. I'm going to assume South Beach is off limits too. But what about the places other people have found. Shell lumber (not on saturdays, that's the big 3's day), behind the dryclean usa on coral way and 12 or behind the publix on biscanye and 48 (of course not when ms cheesious is there). Behind the mayfair. Are the "Only rally truckers" even looking for new spaces. Many haven't gone out onto the streets by themselves. Its disappointing that for sucha mobile fleet of food trucks they seem to be stuck at the same places.
