KTVU: Food truck owners begin filing for permits in Alameda, February 6, 2012


Despite numerous businesses on Alameda Point, there are precious few restaurants but that's about to change.

Alameda began taking applications Monday from mobile restaurateurs.

San Francisco's Financial District hosts many exotic lunch wagons because there's more than enough people to patronize them as well as regular eateries.

For existing mobile restaurants, Alameda presents new opportunities.

"I think that's great, the more the merrier for all the trucks," said Josh Yazzie, a food truck employee. "It's a growing business."
