San Bernardino County may try to get a bite of the increasingly popular gourmet food truck business.
Supervisor Janice Rutherford said Tuesday at the Board of Supervisors meeting that she would like to look at legalizing the businesses -- which are banned -- in the county's unincorporated areas.
"We need every opportunity to create jobs and give people an opportunity to create their own jobs," she said.
Rutherford said she plans to discuss the issue with the county's environmental health department, which regulates food establishments, and interested businesses before introducing an ordinance.
She described the industry as a "perfect opportunity" for those seeking a low-overhead business venture.
Food trucks featuring gourmet menu items such as Korean tacos, Indian dosas and crepes have exploded in popularity in Los Angeles and Orange counties, with dedicated followers tracking their locations on Twitter."
