Food Trucks Go Gourmet!

By Juliana Whitney | SoRealNetwork.com

Food Truck: noun. Restaurant on wheels.

Food trucks are NO LONGER the infamous “roach coaches” limited to feeding the men and women at construction sites; they have gone GOURMET. “Food truck” would be better described as a “restaurant on wheels” and surely the owners would agree. The quality of food is now equal to that which you would find in a store front restaurant, and each restaurant on wheels specializes in something uniquely delicious.

The Food Network really publicized the increasing quality of food trucks on the show “The Great Food Truck Race.” It is understandable that gourmet food has taken over the food truck world since, in this economy, placing a restaurant on wheels is a better financial bet than opening a stationary store front. Food trucks have the luxury of setting up shop all around the city, popping up at different locations for lunch and dinner each day. The restaurants go to the customers instead of waiting for the customers to come to them. It’s a win- win situation, convenient for the customers and for the restaurant on wheels.
