By Sam Seliger |


What if food truck owners could monetize their Facebook Fans? What if food truck owners could create a branded, GPS-enabled iPhone app so that their customers could order ahead? What if food truck owners could create a database of their customers to use for promotions? Sound too good to be true?

ChowNow, the online ordering system for restaurants, takes food truck’s Facebook pages and enables online ordering in minutes. That way, food truck’s most engaged customers (Facebook Fans) are able to order through Facebook and have their food ready when they arrive at the food truck. Paperless, wireless, easy.

Custom mobile apps also come standard as part of ChowNow’s online ordering and marketing system. Apps are enabled to take, accept and process orders, but more importantly, they act as mini-promotional machines, walking around in customer’s pockets. Push notifications reach customers when they’re primed for a sale or promotion, so customers are never out of touch.


For many food trucks ChowNow works with, the biggest struggle is acquiring and maintaining customer information for use in campaigns and promotions, menu analysis and rewards programs. ChowNow’s Dashboard acts as hub that not only gathers information, but allows for easy analysis. With the ChowNow marketing team create targeted, effective and results-driven marketing strategies.

ChowNow works with restaurants and food trucks across the country. The service costs $89 per month with a one-time setup fee of $199. Digitization of menus, design and submission of the custom mobile app, and unlimited orders through all three channels. Additionally, a Wi-Fi and 4G enabled iPad mini is provided to accept orders. A wireless standalone printer is in the works for easy transfer to food preparers.
