“Whether it’s locating a truck to grab lunch from or finding a truck to cater at an event, there’s an increasingly high demand for food trucks nationwide,” said Resnick. “This is an industry that’s bringing in over a billion dollars and there are still some aspects that are relatively untapped, including the off-premise catering, which is a $150B market opportunity. Money is not only being made from street services, but catering opportunities is really where it’s at for food trucks. It’s a great time for foodies and food trucks!”
