Hello food truck nation!
2018 was definitely a year of learning and growing for us here at FTG. We figured out who we were as a company and although it wasn’t easy, we finally have the perfect recipe for how we are going to power the food truck nation to new heights with the help of food truck owners and the food truck lovers.
As 2019 quickly approaches, we are working hard to launch the food truck ecosystem that you hear us talk about all the time. Here’s a glimpse into how we are going to make that a reality... First of all, we will be enhancing our website to bring the movement to life! We will be sharing the locations where these food trucks can be found at any time and place. We want to bring these food trucks out of the shadows and into the spotlight by using an amazing map feature that will make them easy to find and contact. In addition to that, we will be creating a platform for these amazing food trucks to grow so that the only worry in the world they have is creating amazing food creations. At the end of the day, we are working to help our local food trucks become more technologically advanced so that the people, like you and me, can always know where to find them.
Technology aside, we want to take you deeper into the food truck culture and really showcase what this movement is all about. We will be adding a page to our website called, "The Culture". This page is dedicated to our blogger initiative. The bloggers who have teamed up with us will be sharing there take on the food truck culture and will be able to post their stories to this page. This page will allow you to see the food truck culture from various perspectives and will be a catalyst for the ongoing empowerment of this movement.
2019 is going to be a big and exciting year for us at FTG. And, with your continuous support, we can make it a memorable one as well! Stay tuned to see what the Food Truck Guys have in store next.
Have a great and safe new year everyone!
Until next time,
