When you have a game like this in which the items (the trucks) can be used multiple times while being placed into the groups (the buildings), it is easiest just to start a 3X6 grid.  Then, when a truck can be at a building, the appropriate box gets a "Yes." If a truck cannot go to a building, the appropriate box gets a "No."  This will give you a real nice picture to start with.

As a second option, I set up six columns, one for each truck. In each column, I start off with one slot, leaving room for more. Turned vertically, it would look like so:

F: _
H: _
I: _
P: _
S: _
T: _

This way, if something is known (such as the hot dog truck getting Y in the first rule), I just write Y under the appropriate column. Then, for numbers rules (like the second one), I can draw as many spaces as I need an close off the column. So, in my sketch, I'd have two spaces in the falafel column, and close it off like so:

F: _ _|


If you wanted more information, such as key deductions, let us know (or send a PM) and we'll be happy to give you more.

Since we're given the exact number of trucks that serve building Y, consider using the buildings as your base:
