If you have not seen a Pop-Up Food Truck in your area – you are missing out!
The all-encompassing man who invented this phenomenon was Charles Goodnight back in the 1860s; feeding the working cattle-wrangling men of the roads in rural America with his “Chuck Wagon”
150 years later, ‘Chuck Wagons’ are feeding global ‘foodies’ of the 21st century and have been creating quite the business for the Food Truck Industry. In 2015, the Sydney council-built Sydney Food Truck locator app reached an all-time high with 194,000 downloads - triple the amount of downloads from the year before.
With the boost of #foodphotography taking its toll on social-media platform Instagram, Food Trucks uncover a whole new chapter of unearthing new food haunts, buzzy trends and culinary happenings.
There is no cultural restriction or limitation to the food offered by these food trucks. These businesses have personality, and thrive on the hype of multicultural cuisine that attract the local, the critics, the admirers and the tourist alike. A fleet of food trucks appeared at Vivid Sydney 2016 which transformed Vivid from not only becoming a Light Show spectacular, but becoming Sydney's most popular visual feast and dining.
