As of 2015, the Roaming Hunger and Used Vending websites are two sources individuals can use to search for local listings of used catering trucks in their areas. The websites allow users to search for food trucks and vans according to location, price and the duration of the listing.
The food truck industry has existed in America for quite some time, but has seen exponential growth in the 21st century. The increasing popularity of the industry may be linked to the busy schedules Americans face in the modern age, according to Entrepreneur. Many individuals forgo making breakfasts and taking longer lunch breaks in favor of picking up a quick meal from a local food truck. From a food trucker's perspective, the ability to constantly move the restaurant to wherever business is best is an advantage over traditional restaurant owners, who must invest large sums in stationary businesses.
Roaming Hunger caters its services to consumers and prospective and current food truck owners alike. Consumers are able to search through the vendor listings on the website to hire catering for an important event. Current owners are able to sell their trucks or apply to be catering vendors.
Used Vending offers listings for restaurant owners. Listings include vending machines, concession kiosks, heavy-duty restaurant equipment and limousines.
