With catering vans costing much less in comparison, people could turn in this direction instead and still serve their tasty offerings and menus.

It could be believed that living conditions were cramped and a lot of people may not have had the equipment or food to cook their own meals. Especially in urban areas, vendors were able to sell their food from either a small cart or a kitchen. And from there, this trend continued throughout the world.
