A Valley News Publication

FOOD. TRUCK. MANIA.

The Hanover High School Broadside reports that Martha’s On a Roll is now open in Hanover.

The Valley News reported earlier this month about the VT Munchies food truck and two food truck festivals this summer, one of which is still to come next month in Lebanon. (We also told you about that on UV INDEX, for anybody keeping score, although our headline was perhaps less traditional.)

According to the Valley News article …

Food trucks are one of the fastest growing segments in the food industry, according to foodtruckoperator.com. In 2012, food trucks in the U.S. generated $650 million in revenue; in 2017, revenue jumped to some $2.7 billion. They have the ease of mobility, adaptability of menu and can target their customers through their smartphones. They also offer less expensive eating options for consumers.

Our GIF-laden report on the August 2017 debut of the Taco’s Tacos food truck became one of our most-read posts of the year. People were also pumped about JUEL Juice + Smoothies.

And the excitement when Pnomh Penh opened its food truck in 2016 seems like a distant memory! (Pnomh Penh now has a brick-and-mortar shop.)

Erik Almestica, left, and Garrett Wilson, both of White River Junction, work together in the tight space of their VT Munchies food truck while parked at Colburn Park in Lebanon, N.H., Tuesday, May 8, 2018. Almestica has been a cook at Dartmouth College’s Thayer Dining Hall, and Wilson grew up in A.J.’s Restaurant, owned by his aunt. (Valley News – James M. Patterson) Copyright Valley News.
