Think of food truck cultures, and cities like Portland and Austin and Los Angeles come to mind. Not Atlanta. Blame antiquated vending laws and slow-moving government officials. But six years since people like Greg Smith (an attorney and president of the Atlanta Street Food Coalition) and Carson Young (owner of Yumbii, Atlanta’s first permitted food truck) started pushing legislators, we’re finally seeing some major changes for the better. They can’t come soon enough.
