This summer marks the tenth anniversary of the modern food truck movement. As National Food Truck Day approaches (June 29, 2018), Roaming Hunger has set out to make it the biggest Food Truck holiday ever. Over 800 food trucks across the country are participating and providing deals and discounts. Roaming Hunger has also invited partners from the industry to join in spreading the word and getting customers and food trucks involved, including the original creator of “National Food Truck Day” Rick McNeely.
Food trucks have proven they are not a fad; Food Truck Nation, a study conducted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, found that a city’s openness to food trucks is indicative of its overall entrepreneurial growth.
“This year is about celebrating the entrepreneurial spirit of our industry,” says Ross Resnick, Founder and CEO of Roaming Hunger. “Our goal is to make National Food Truck Day a holiday that the entire food truck industry can own. Whether you’re a food truck or a service that supports the industry, we want it to be bigger than Roaming Hunger.”
This National Food Truck Day, say ‘Thank you’ to this small army of entrepreneurs. Thank them for their hard work, for making our communities a better place to live, and above all else, making life more delicious.
