Just this past August, the Kalamazoo City Council made operating a food truck in the Michigan city's streets legal, and Coffee Rescue jumped into action.

Kalamazoo has a new "emergency vehicle" that people are happy to see coming. In August, the Kalamazoo City Council unanimously adopted a food truck ordinance allowing the mobile vendors to operate on public streets. Coffee Rescue is one of three trucks so far to rev up their engines locally, in addition to the Organic Gypsy and local street food veteran Gorilla Gourmet, which opened in 2010.
