As for summer 2017, well, people can expect food trucks to take over in a big way, and some reasons behind this great occurrence can be found below.
Good luck this summer, food truck owners, and happy eating, food lovers!
Reasons Why Food Trucks Are Going To Really Take Over During Summer 2017
- The Concepts Are Getting More And More Unique
- Food Trucks Tend To Be Where The People Are
- It’s Tough To Go To An Event Without Seeing A Food Truck
- Combined, They Serve EVERYTHING
- More And More People Are Hiring Food Trucks For Special Events
The Concepts Are Getting More And More Unique
While you will still find traditional food trucks everywhere (such as hot dog stands, trucks that serve street tacos, etc.), some rather unique food trucks are sprouting up all across the country. For example, there are food trucks for dogs now. For dogs!
When it comes to food, people tend to like to try new things, which is why food trucks with unique concepts should do wonders this summer (spoiler alert: they are everywhere).
Food Trucks Tend To Be Where The People Are
This is a no-brainer — food trucks tend to be where the people are. After all, food trucks thrive in downtown areas, and places where there is plenty of foot traffic. Combine that with the fact that more and more trucks are coming into existence by the day, and food trucks are bound to take over the food scene this summer (and downtown/populated areas, of course).
Plus, more people tend to go outside and venture during the summer, and summer is when tourism is at a high, and all of this will lead to more people eating at food trucks (we are talking about the busy season in this industry, after all).
It’s Tough To Go To An Event Without Seeing A Food Truck
If you go to an outdoor event this summer, then you will likely see a food truck at the event. At the very least, you will likely see one nearby. Food trucks tend to thrive at events, and that is really starting to be the case. They can be found at concerts, parades, festivals, family reunions, weddings, etc.
In this day and age, it’s tough to go to an event (especially an outdoor one) without seeing a mobile kitchen, and that is yet another reason why foodies can expect to see food trucks taking over during summer 2017.
Combined, They Serve EVERYTHING
But seriously, combined, food trucks serve everything. American food, Italian food, Chinese food, Mediterranean Food, Hawaiian food, dog food, a combination of foods and the list could go on and on. It’s a very beautiful thing, especially if you are a fan of all things food (why wouldn’t you be?).
As a result of food trucks serving anything and everything in the food department, it would not be a surprise to see more and more people venturing to food trucks instead of hitting up sit-down restaurants.
More And More People Are Hiring Food Trucks For Special Events
More and more people are hiring food trucks for special events/catering gigs, and that is especially the case during the summer. Case in point: Food truck weddings are more popular than you might think.
Food trucks thrive at events. Not only that, but they make the perfect catering service for any type of party, whether we are talking about a wedding, birthday party, family reunion or you name it. Food truck owners have certainly taken notice, and that is a big reason why you are seeing so many of them at special events now.
Food trucks aren’t going anywhere, and they are bound to take over the food scene during summer 2017. On that note, enjoy all of the delicious food truck food this summer, foodies!
