Food Trucks Are Not a Fad (Infographic)
Remember the “roach coach” of days gone by? These trucks parked outside an office or a job site to cater to the poor saps who forgot to pack a lunch for the day.
In the past, those folks were faced with the choice of going hungry or shuffling over to these mobile sustenance stations.
