Mister Softee Fighting Back Against Imitators; Fruit Vendors Feud
Speaking of street vendor wars, two ML commenters pointed me towards these two articles. Last week AMNY posted this story about how Mister Softee is trying to crack down on all the imitators (trucks with names like “Mister Soft, Mister Soft Freeze and Mr. Softee”.) And for those who thought vendors were only limited to those selling unhealthy snacks, NYT’s City Room Blog has this report about two feuding fruit stands in Hell’s Kitchen. And from the sounds of it, they have more than each other to contend with. The Food Emporium they are parked in front of wants both of them gone.
