How can I get a truck to serve food at my event?
Go here.

Our mission:
To inform about and promote gourmet food trucks in San Diego.

Who are you, anyway?
We are food truck fans who want to share information with the community! The San Diego Food Truck Facebook page began in June 2010 and this blog several months later. Please note that we do not run or own a food truck or cart.

Did you organize [insert name] food truck festival/event?
Nope, we don’t organize any truck events.

Will you list my truck on your site?
If you consistently serve food and/or beverages at different public locations around San Diego, email sdfoodtrucks@gmail.com and let’s talk about it.

Will you list my event on the calendar?
If you know of an event with 3 or more food trucks in San Diego, email sdfoodtrucks@gmail.com and we’ll try to get it up there. Include the event name, date, time, address, web link, and number/names of trucks attending.

Can you give me advice on how to start a truck?
We are a fan site and don’t own a truck, so unfortunately, we can’t give you advice on starting a truck. But you should check out our resource page for new truck owners.

I went to find a truck that you said would be there, and it wasn’t there!
Always check a truck’s Facebook, website, or Twitter directly to ensure they will be where you think they will be–you never know, things can change.

Can you get my truck into [fill in name] event?
Your best bet is to contact a truck that has participated in the event in the past and ask them how you can get in the rotation.

Where did you get that super cool logo?
The SDFT logo is thanks to talented artist Sarah Bond. Check out more of her work at Paper Salad.

Who did the nifty website design?
Zack from Six 5 Web Design redesigned the site in June 2012. Check him out!

Hi, I am looking for a food truck that does private parties at homes. Do you have any information on which good trucks might be available for something like that?Thank you!

I think most of the trucks are more than happy to do catering! Just give them a ring or send ‘em email! Good luck!

To all Food Truck Owners,

We are purchasing a beach parking lot at one of the busiest beaches in the San Diego market. We are looking for a long term relationship with several food trucks to serve thee2 million people who visit this beach each year. Do food trucks pay to have prime locations? We are open to any arrangment that would be mutually profitable. This is an awesome opportunty for an aggressive vendor.

I would love to have one at Mission Bay Automotive. Perfect place! Best automotive shop in town. I’ve taken my cars there for well over 15 years. Okay, enough compliments… but that would be a great place for a food truck. I’d bring about 25+ people from my MeetUp group (PB: 50+, single and fun) plus clients and friends. Troy has a ton of customers he could bring. And it’s so close to the USD students.

My family and I are in process of writing a business plan for a gourmet food truck that we would like to serve North County Coastal. Although, we have learned that there are many regulations prohibiting trucks in San Diego County, we were excited to learn that Del Mar granted business licenses to 6 trucks participating in Curbside Bites on Wednesday evenings and were hoping to be able to join this gathering. However, due to pressure from Del Mar restaurants it appears the City Council is considering placing a moratorium on licenses for trucks in Del Mar. They will be discussing this issue at their next council meeting on Monday, November 19, at 6 p.m. I am writing to urge the trucks currently serving Del Mar to ask their customers to attend the council meeting and speak out on behalf of the food trucks.
Council members need to hear not only from restaurants but also from community members who appreciate food trucks and want a greater variety of food options available to them by the beach.

Deborah,

Did you had a chance to finish your business plan? If so, would you like to expand your business with as many as 10 food trucks? I’m an investor……contact me asap!

Thanks,
Rob

Please remove the K’Paza food truck from your listing. The Truck now is in Texas. Thank you.

Hi, how come you don’t list the trucks that came to Torrey Pines today and yesterday?
An inaccurate list is worse than no list at all….

We are having a fundraising event called the Barefoot BBQ on Aug. 24th at Spanish Landing and would like to have food trucks present. We have announced the event through local media as well as social media and expect over 500 attendees. The beneficiary for every Barefoot BBQ is local children. This year’s event is focused on the San Diego County Foster Youth Mentor Program (FYMP). We are committed to continuing to supporting underprivileged local youth. If you are part of a similarly-focused organization serving local youth, please let us know. We are a completely 501c3 non profit organization and would like a percentage of your proceeds to go to our charity. There will be music, entertainment and a great time to be had by all… Your presence will help to enhance our vision. Thank you

Hi. I am interested in getting more information on hiring a food truck for my wedding. I would like the food truck to arrive towards the end of the night a few hours after dinner almost like a midnight snack only it would be around 9-10 p.m. The wedding will be in San Marcos on Saturday February 14, 2015.

I have a great site (big parking lot and lots of traffic) at the East end of Garnet next to the Night Owl bar. I am interested to see if any trucks would like to set up shop there?

Do any trucks make lunch rounds in the Clairmont Mesa area that would be willing to traverse down Copley Dr? We have zero lunch options in the area and have to drive to get lunch. There are several business here that love to have some options. I personally would love to see something every Thursday.

I am organizing a fundraiser and was interested in seeing if I could get a food truck there to help support. Since we are fundraising we are looking for something that is cost effective and will help us raise money not spend it. Any ideas?
