A popular local food truck is hoping to expand its reach with a business boost from an online competition.
The Drift food truck is looking for a cash infusion from software company Intuit, who are sponsoring a competition to grant business wishes to 11 small businesses.
To win the contest, Drift needs to get the most votes on an online poll the company has set up, which features many Alberta businesses.
Truck owner Kara Fenske said if they win they will be using the prize for an expansion adding a smaller food cart to go along with their current truck.
“It would just be a cart not another truck, but I don’t really want to say what we would be serving. That is still a secret,” she said.
She said their current business works, but it would be nice to be able to be more flexible.
“The truck is mobile but it is large so it costs a lot to run, this one would make it more flexible for us.”
