Accordingly, we believe that catering truck owners/operators have the right to make an honest living in their line of work. Furthermore, the members of the Asociación de Loncheros contribute to the well-being of the communities they operate in by complying with the regulations put forth by county and city agencies, as well as fulfilling their commitment for industry regulation.  The Asociación de Loncheros La Familia Unida de California formed in 2008.
