I live in Branson, Missouri(small town w/ 7 million visitors a year) near Arkansas border and they (Health Dept.)do not allow street vendors except for special events. But there is 2 places in town where they have smoker outside in front of a grocery store and a convience store with their stand inside the store.
I will do my food truck in a city north about 30 miles. The city is larger in population and has alot more opportunities. It is a different county, different health dept. They do not have any stands or trucks selling food but it is allowed after jumpimg through a bunch of hoops. I am going to be the first one to break into this untapped city.
