DENVER — Two Colorado food truck fabricators have received an injunction from the U.S. District Court, District of Colorado after allegations by the state's Attorney General's Office that the company made false promises regarding delivering finished food trucks to purchasers, causing financial harm.
According to the Colorado Attorney General's Office, Denver Custom Food Trucks, Brothers Custom Food Trucks and their owners promised ready-to-go, "government safety inspected" food trucks in six weeks but, instead, did not deliver the trucks or delivered "faulty" trucks that were not operable. The owners were also not licensed to sell trucks and failed to get "clean titles" for the trucks in order to evade the government, the Attorney General's Office said.
Many of the customers who purchased the food trucks had used their savings and 401k money to buy the trucks and, in some cases, the customers had quit their jobs and planned to have a ready-to-go food truck to start their business, said the office of Colorado Attorney General Cynthia Coffman.
Both food truck companies have been shut down for tax evasion and are prohibited by the recent injunction from working in any fabrication, repair or sale of food trucks, according to the Attorney General's Office.
