Mobility is Cashing in during 2017

The food truck industry continues to build with an increasing demand within large cities, as well as at outdoor events nationwide.

Recently, foodtruckoperator.com published an infographic highlighting that the food truck industry is expected to grow by 4x during 2017 in comparison to 2016. Browse over their infographic below.

Food trucks in New York City are so popular they have an annual competition called the Vendy Awards. This event takes place on September 16 from 12:30 – 5:00 p.m. at Governors Island.



The Vendy Awards helps aid the Street Vendor Project. The SVP reported: There are as many as 20,000 street vendors in New York City — hot dog vendors, flower vendors, t-shirt vendors, street artists, fancy food trucks, and many others.

This community of startups is often overlooked as the backbone of the labor force. Food trucks fuel a large amount of working class individuals.

It is important to always check the food and safety conditions surrounding the work stations.
