Food trucks: Sparking a mobile retail revolution?

Dallas is considering a new ordinance for food trailers, but will other businesses soon operate from trailers? That’s the hope of Cienda Partners, which wants  to house everything from tattoo shops to professional services on West Commerce and Pittman.

Maybe you’ve heard of (or even patronized) vehicles that travel to homes to groom pets or perform car repairs?

After being approached by a barber who bought an RV only to find he couldn’t cut hair in it, State Rep. Al Williams proposed the bill.
