Food Truck Finder
How can we discover and track our favorite food trucks?
The food truck business is a rapidly growing $1.2 billion industry, serving loyal customers, adventurous foodies, and on-the-go students looking for a quick bite to eat. However, these customers often struggle in locating a food truck that will satisfy their appetites.
Students developed the Food Truck Finder app to connect users to food trucks, using information collected from local vendors to provide accurate menu descriptions and location schedules.
Food Truck Finder's User Interface
The app locates the user and maps all food trucks within a set radius, indicating which is open or closed using red and green tags. Users can review a detailed menu of each vendor by clicking on a pin or viewing the menu listing. The app eliminates the guesswork that often restricts consumers looking to grab a meal from a local food truck and fosters a sense of community between foodies and mobile chefs.
