FOODTRUCKWIREThe Statesman reports on the complicated world of food truck health inspections. More food trucks fail their health inspections than brick-and-mortar restaurants, in part because operating a food truck can be a logistical nightmare. A regular restaurant does not have to worry about finding a water supply on a regular basis, for instance. Also, the Austin Health Department's standards are very, very high. Brain Rauschuber of Nutter Buster BBQ & Comfort says, "If you pass the Austin inspection, you can pass the inspection anywhere." [Statesman]
