Food Trucks: Good For The City, Great For The Consumer

Food trucks provide a big advantage to the busy LA area. They are a convenient part of city life, providing a wide range of well-priced food choices to people where they work and play.

At lunchtime, business districts and office managers appreciate the presence of trucks since delicious, readily available food helps keep employees happy and encourages new businesses to locate to the area.

At dinner time, the food trucks gather to form “food courts” and generate spontaneous social gatherings, giving local neighborhoods a lively sense of community. The natural camaraderie that occurs as customers wait in line at a food truck or linger over the condiment area rarely occurs in a restaurant setting. This is more common when diners are walking, talking and sharing details about the foods they are eating.

Since roaming restaurants can’t rely on parking in the same location day after day, they must build a fan base and communicate with those fans via social media. This communication with customers helps them become a part of the communities in which they operate.

Sometimes several trucks offer the same dish, but typically each mobile bistro puts its own spin, spice or seasoning on the item. Whether you’re looking for a burger, taco or hot sandwich, there are plenty of food truck variations to sample.

Foods trucks can serve catered meals to large groups in record time. And many will alter their regular menu to ensure that the client has the ideal food offerings for their special event.
