While many people in Los Angeles support the legalization of street food, some have their doubts. Restaurant owner Michael Zarabian explained to NPR that he's worried about the cost that cheap and readily-available street food will have on his brick-and-mortar business. "You can't afford to sell the same sandwich for $4 with a drink," says Zarabian. "You're going to sell it for $10 to just survive." However, with the new regulation of the street food market, Zarabian and other restaurant owners could catch a break, as street vendors might not be able to keep the prices of their wares as low as they have been in the past. "If we onboard street vendors into a formal economy, they'll be paying taxes, they'll be buying their business permits, and they are procuring their products from other suppliers," Clare Fox of the Los Angeles Food Policy Council tells NPR. This could spark a rise in prices among street vendors and food truck owners alike, lessening the burden of competition on Los Angeles restauranteurs.
