Time flies, doesn’t it? Can you imagine it’s already the tenth anniversary of the modern food truck movement? We can’t…And we also can’t wait for National Food Truck Day ! Happening this Friday, June 29, 2018, Roaming Hunger has set out to make it the biggest Food Truck holiday ever.
There will be more than 800 food trucks across the country that’ll be participating and offering delicious food of all tastes.
At the beginning, people thought they’d disappear within a few years, but Food trucks have proven they are not a fad. According to a study conducted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, 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.”
National Food Truck Day Across The Country
These 800 food trucks (and more!) will be roaming in more than 20 major cities all across the U.S., including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, Austin, and many more. Many will be offering promotions such as BOGO items, free drinks, and discounts.
