Duly Quoted: Zane Caplansky, on Useless and Expensive Permits

Not everyone got up at 4 a.m. this morning to get their hands on one of the City's new mobile food vending permits.

“Caplansky’s Deli will NOT be purchasing the most expensive and useless Mobile Food Vending permit in N America when they go on sale … “

-Zane Caplansky, of Caplansky’s Deli, making it clear where he stands on the City’s new mobile food vending permits, 125 of which went on sale today for $5,000 each. There seems to be enthusiasm about the system from some quarters—would-be licence-buyers started lining up at 4 a.m. this morning—but many food truck operators have expressed concerns about restrictions built into the new set of bylaws that they say will prevent the growth of a healthy and thriving food truck scene in Toronto.
