The food truck craze first took the nation by storm in 2009, and now, two years later, it shows no signs of stopping. In fact, as the world is introduced to more and more specialty food trucks (think beyond tacos to grilled cheese sandwiches and cupcakes), the trend is evolving.
The latest role of the food truck is that of party caterer. Instead of hiring a caterer to do all the cooking for a birthday party, engagement dinner, or anniversary, many people are letting food trucks do the work. It's hassle-free and you won't end up with any dirty dishes to clean at the end of the evening!
