Food truck foodies can now dine at Mad Mac indoors at a brick and mortar locale
Treasure Valley food trucks are fun.
Figuring where they’re parked when you’re hungry is not.
The Southern Idaho Food Truck Association feels your pangs. So its members are making it easy to hunt down your favorite street tacos, pizza or barbecue. They’ve signed on with Street Food Finder, a free app and website that tracks trucks in select cities such as Los Angeles, Nashville, Cincinnati — and now Boise.
“We have been asked many times by our customers how they can find food trucks,” SIFTA president Sid Gauby explained in a media release. “... Up to this time, we have had to tell them to follow each truck on their social media pages.”
Now it’s all in one place — well, much of it is.
More than 30 members of SIFTA plan to add their schedules. Trucks already participating include Atomic Pops, BD Meatwagon, Brown Shuga Soul Food, El Paco, Fly Food Truck, Genki Takoyaki, Grid Waffles, Kilted Kod, Off the Grid Pizza, Rusty Dog, Tiki’s Shave Ice and Gauby’s own Slow River Coffee.
Is your favorite truck near or far? Now you’ll know.
You can even turn on alerts to be notified about trucks in your vicinity during lunch and dinner hours. (Isn’t location-services technology delicious?)
“We believe this app will greatly improve people’s experience with our members and the food truck community,” Gauby says.
