You’ve probably heard the saying, but in this case Lucky’s is a food truck. 

Good Main Street businesses in the Village of Osceola had a rough go of it the last 12-14 months. Revenues were down dramatically, yet they continued to pay rent to landlords and or taxes to the Village if they owned a building. Restaurants and bars kept paying annual license fees and and incurred additional costs to adhere to CDC guidelines for the pandemic. 

Today the Osceola Area Chamber / Main Street organization promoted Lucky’s on their Facebook page. To my knowledge, Lucky’s does not pay any property taxes nor do they pay the required fee to hold a license to sell food in the Village. 

So why does our local Chamber / Main Street organization support a competitor (albeit a temporary one) to established local businesses? 

Good businesses deserve to know the answer. Thank you.
