Re:What is wrong with Chicago?
I am not trying to get anyone upset, and I am certainly not saying that this person is right and that person is wrong with their particular actions, but over the last few years, since mobile food dispensing (hot dog cart, food truck, trailer, etc.) owners have been posting on Roadfood, I have observed that a few of them seem to have no problem setting up near a brick and mortar restaurant (and effectively going into competition with the brick and mortar) but will get very upset if another mobile food dispensing unit with similar food to theirs or (heaven forbid) a non-profit organization selling anything sets up near their location on the street or at a festival, to compete with them.
I hate to tell you this, folks, but these two scenarios are just two sides of the exact same coin. It is no different than a city having a "restaurant row" with a variety of restaurants in the same area, sometimes with two or more restaurants of the same type. If you are going to compete with the brick and mortar, then expect others to find it perfectly acceptable to compete with you.
