Customer-Driven Apps & Technology Trends for Food trucks

Most food-related industries rely heavily on apps, social media, and technology. QSR insists that technology, especially social media, are quite important in the food truck model. Operators once just relied on social media standbys such as Facebook and Twitter, but the market has grown over the last several years. Social media outlets like Snapchat and Instagram are becoming important platforms for food truck associates since these social media tools are now major players for their consumers. Food truck operators can use these platforms to share their truck locations, menu specials, and other important news. Building a following on one or several of these channels can increase exposure and eventually business.

12 Mobile Food Trends for the Future

1. Food no longer has to be sold from the truck. 

Gone are the days of food-truck food sold exclusively out of trucks. Eager to earn additional income, food-truck operators are increasingly dishing their menus at markets, food fests, and pop-up stores, says Ben Goldberg, founder and president of the New York Food Truck Association.

2. Branded promotions are on fire.

 When big companies have major new product launches, they are increasingly bringing along food trucks to the rollouts to add to the excitement, Goldberg says. For example, when AME Network had an event with its media partners, the New York–based company linked with locally popular Katz’s Delicatessen. The New York Food Truck Association helped to organize nine Katz Deli food trucks for the occasion.

Technology is critical. 

Several newer technologies are becoming second nature to food trucks. While many food trucks formerly relied mostly on Twitter and Facebook, others today are mostly turning to Instagram and Snapchat to let customers know when they are at a certain location, Goldberg says.

Meanwhile, Ingram says that one of the most popular features of his New Bohemia food truck is the free WiFi that he offers. “We give them reason to want to be close to our food truck,” he says.

Food Trends in India- Chris Cattini

Current restaurant trend is fusion foods – some restaurateurs are adding international ingredients, such as truffle oil, to Indian dishes, creating new flavours that are both interesting to Indian diners and popular with foreign tourists, who find an element of familiarity in such foods.
