I operate a campus chip and burger truck operation at our local college. We’re allowed to set up almost anywhere as long as we don’t interfere with the pedestrian or vehicle traffic. I found the ideal location, but there is no shade at all. To attract customers and provide some shade I attached a bright yellow retractable Aleko awning. The aluminum arms support the canopy so there are no posts for pedestrians to walk into. It’s even water resistant if it’s light rain however it does not protect from heavy rain. The university kids love it since they can wait in the shade for their orders. It handles only a very light breeze but begins to flap if it’s slightly gusty. I’m worried it won’t survive any amount of wind since the frame and fabric are both thin and fragile, but so far it’s holding together. I will update this review in a few months.
