In food truck lingo, I was on the other side of the service window. Or, in this case, the "other side of the microphone!"
Seth who is from Taste Trekkers and runs the website "For foodies who love travel and travelers who love food" asked me to participate in his weekly podcast at TasteTrekkers.com. Seth and I originally met last fall when we helped him secure food trucks for a great event he put on in Providence. It was great fun to be interviewed and to be the subject of Podcast Episode 73: Everything You Want to Know About Food Trucks.
Seth and I covered a lot of ground over the 45 minute interview, covering food truck subjects from the what has helped the gourmet food truck movement grow to the most unique things I have seen at food trucks. I have already received a lot of great feedback that this podcast is one of the most informative and accurate pieces of insight into the food truck business and community.
It was also a lot of fun to be able to include so many of our good friends and experiences in this piece. I hope you enjoy the interview and hope and look forward to hearing any feedback. If you can't take the time to listen tot the entire podcast some of the highlights are listed below.
