“The Food Truck” is the first restaurant on wheels to ride through the streets of Costa Rica.
The project is an investment and risk by the Salas Barboza family, the first to bring to Costa Rica the popular style of eatery in the U.S. and Canada, but almost unknown in Costa Rica.
Since the beginning, the family has faced all the limitations and tribulations of building in Costa Rica a company from scratch: especially when there is no existing legislation for food trucks. For now, they have a catering service permit and can operate only on private premises, where hired.
In an interview with Amelia Rueda, Yorly Barboza explains her plans for her business, the curiosity of customs workers who ha never seen this type of vehicle up close and the steps taken to protect the food truck brand in the country.
The goal one day, of this enterprising family, is to be able to roll the streets deliering food wherever there is a crave.
