MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — They’ve overcome Mother Nature only to be challenged with parking problems in downtown Minneapolis. Food truck owners say every weekday can become challenging as they scout for the best spot.
“It’s ridiculous, at 8:30 a.m. trucks will start circling the block,” said Steve Ramlow, owner of Simply Steve’s food truck. “Then around 9, somebody finally parks and then everyone parks.”
Ramlow said the big fight is for spots on Marquette Avenue between 7th and 8th, near the IDS tower.
“Most of us really get along and we try to make sure we’re utilizing the space,” said Cody Allen, owner of the House of Hunger truck. “Sometimes in the morning for about 10 minutes it gets interesting.”
