Jacksonville is considered a metropolitan area and just like Raleigh and Charlotte, it offers a cultural experience to many tourists who visit. 

Food trucks and their means of cooking up different varieties of tasty options normally fit into that experience people search for in order to sample the local cuisine. Depending on who you ask you’ll come across different opinions of how food trucks have been utilized within the city limits.

However one thing is certain, Jacksonville was not as “food truck friendly” as other surrounding towns. 

It wasn’t intentional but over a four-year time span there seemed to be a misunderstanding between the city and food truck owners attempting to change the text of the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) so that these restaurants on wheels had more freedoms to operate.
