Follow That Food Truck! is a free mobile app for iPhone and Android that uses GPS to display the real-time location of all nearby food trucks. Food truck operators can even customize their truck’s profile by displaying contact info, a website, hours, or menus. And the best part is it doesn’t cost a penny!
The app was launched in the food truck-friendly city of Lexington, KY, where over 30 food trucks thrive. But food truck owners and diners can use the app nationwide. Any food truck owner can download the app and start using it immediately for free.
Over 30,000 people have already downloaded the app to find food trucks in Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, West Virginia, Virginia, Mississippi, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Hawaii, Washington DC, North Carolina, California, Connecticut, South Carolina, Utah, Missouri, and Texas, and that number grows every day.
