IT’S HERE!! Our free iPhone app that uses GPS to display the location of nearby food trucks just hit the app store!
Follow That Food Truck! just launched in the food truck-friendly city of Lexington, KY. Lexington is a perfect proving ground for the app because over 30 food trucks currently thrive in this city of 300,000 people. The food truck scene in Lexington has exploded over the past couple of years and, as a result, thousands of diners are now scrambling every week to find these mobile culinary stations.
Thanks to the iPhone app, finding food trucks will no longer be a problem. Diners can simply open the app and see the location of every nearby food truck. Follow That Food Truck! simplifies the once tedious process of locating the trucks.
The app is also great for food truck owners. It connects them to thousands of new diners at the flip of a switch, and it allows them to customize their truck profiles with whatever information they’d like to share. Truck owners can run daily specials or coupons, list a website or contact info, or even post a menu. The display options are entirely up to the truck operator.
We’re very proud of the app, and we’re excited to share it with everyone. And this is just the beginning. We’re in the first (or alpha) version of the app. We have big plans coming down the line and updates scheduled that will bring all kinds of exciting features.
We would love for you to give the app a try and make any suggestions about how we can make it better in future versions. Just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In just a couple of days, over a dozen trucks have already created profiles on the app and begun using it! Many more to come. In fact, any truck in any city can use the app. It started in Lexington, but we intend to grow fast. Just download the app and start telling people in your area about it. That’s all it takes to build a following.
