The City of Orlando debuts new concert and food truck event at Lake Eola

Orlando City is bringing a new “signature program” for the Lake Eola Park, called Orlando Sound Byte, in combination with “Orlando’s Hip Contemporary Pak View” with live concerts.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation has released results from a nationwide study called Food Truck Nation, which is an index in relation to overall “Food Truck-Friendliness” in the top cities of the country.

Orlando came in third place because of cheap permits, low operating fees, and navigational municipal restrictions on the city’s website.

Food trucks are estimated to be a $2 billion+ industry in cities across the country, and according to this study, there has been an increase in revenue of more than 300 percent in the industry.
