"The appearance of the new Curry Up Now food truck in downtown Burlingame ... has irked some restaurateurs and business leaders who pay high rents in the area," Rosenberg writes. "City officials and police, meanwhile, have begun fielding complaints and investigating the legality and rules surrounding lunch trucks, and they may ask the owner to move to an industrial area near the Bay."
The Kapoors argue they're not stealing business away from anybody. Rosenberg reports that Akash Kapoor reckons some 20 to 30 percent of diners come from dozens of miles away -- visitors who are likely to patronize Burlingame's brick and mortar shops. Customers can keep up with Curry Up Now's shifting whereabouts through tweets, some that list its GPS coordinates.
A planned meeting with city officials, business leaders, and the Kapoors might result in Curry Up Now having to move out of downtown. Read an interview with Akash Kapoor from early October on Cyrus Farivar's California Taco Trucks blog.
