NSVI- St. Petersburg Vending
St. Petersburg, FL
The downtown area of St. Petersburg, Fla., is currently a “no vending zone.” Recently, the city council has decided to open up its downtown to food trucks, but the council is faced with one problem: the disapproval of downtown restaurants. Because of the pressure from the Chamber of Commerce, St. Petersburg is considering a law that prohibits food trucks to vend within up to 500 feet from a restaurant.
In response, IJ has helped the food vendors of St. Petersburg to organize and to get their message out there: It’s not the government’s place to enact laws to protect brick-and-mortar businesses from competition. With IJ’s help, the food vendors of St. Petersburg and surrounding areas are fighting back against government protectionism.
