PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - Portland's first food truck is open for business.
"Love Cupcakes" opened on Wednesday.
The owners had previously been operating the food truck in Falmouth.
They are renting a small plot of land on the corner of Commercial and Center Streets, which means the business has fewer regulations to follow than a food truck on city property would.
Operators still have to make sure Love Cupcakes is at least 65 feet from other restaurants.
Co-owner Jenny Spear says that navigating the city's regulations was tricky. "It's been a kind of slow process," Spear explains, "but as soon as laws changed in the city, people have been super supportive in getting us going."
So far, Love Cupcakes is the only business to apply for a movile food vendor license.
