The entire site is a hub for all things street food, the blog being an essential element (along with the food truck map, book a vendor and build a food truck options).

Q4: What is the importance of building connections on the web?

Building connections on the web is one of the most important things we do. Food trucks have an incredibly large online presence (Twitter, Facebook etc) that serve as the foundation for communicating with their consumers. We use these online platforms in the same way. Our main service is based on our interactive food truck map, which we aggregate food truck locations to. Thus, our entire existence is based on building connections with food trucks and the foodies who frequent them.
