Curbside Cupcakes in Washington, D.C.

Curbside Cupcakes in Washington, D.C.

About five years ago, food trucks took off as a trend in the D.C. region, competing for hot-spots as they disrupted – and sometimes enraged – brick-and-mortar shops. Today, things have calmed a bit after the introduction of a lottery system for parking at the top locations. And many popular trucks made the leap to opening stores while continuing to operate on wheels. We consider the ways in which our urban landscape drives food truck culture and learn about the ups and downs of transitioning from a truck-only business to one with a storefront as well.
