Food Trucks Hit The Streets In Brookline

BROOKLINE (CBS) – The food truck invasion is taking over Brookline, at least temporarily. Brookline Patch reports that the first of five trucks have hit the streets after the town approved a six-month pilot program allowing them to set up shop.

The proposal for Brookline’s pilot program has been met with some opposition, particularly from local business owners who would have to compete against the trucks.

Food trucks have become extremely popular in Boston.
