Mayor Rahm Emanuel may have championed food trucks for the city of Chicago, but a mayor in Florida is giving him a run for his money.

Mayor Bob Buckhorn of Tampa brought in 99 food trucks Saturday, in what organizers called “the world’s largest food truck parade and rally.”

Although Guinness World records didn’t officially award the city the record, Mayor Buckhorn says he wants to be known as the “the king of the food truck movement.”

    Where have these two been for the last 10 years. Food trucks are not new. King of the food truck movement? New York and LA have had food trucks for quite some time. And Chicago, like everything else, has so many rules regarding food trucks, we'll never have that true food truck experience like every other city in the country with trucks.
