VANCOUVER — Foodservice industry insiders are worried about the City of Vancouver’s plan to add 12 food carts to the streets this spring, bringing the number of vendors to 103, according to the Vancouver Sun.
The B.C. Restaurant and Food Services Association is warning the City of Vancouver to limit new food carts being added to Vancouver streets or risk seeing those vendors struggle in a saturated market and cut into business at established fast-food restaurants. "We're getting to the point now where it's pretty much at the maximum. You don't want the food carts losing business to each other," Ian Tostenson, president, B.C. Restaurant and Food Services Association, was quoted as saying by the Vancouver Sun.
