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 SD Food Truck Facebook page began in June 2010 and this blog several months later. Please note that we are not official representatives of any trucks, we do not speak for any trucks, and we do not run/own a food truck or cart.
Which trucks are the best?
We love all the trucks! I recommend filling out this form to find a truck for your event.
Did you organize XYZ food truck festival/event?
Nope, we don’t organize any truck events.
Can you get my truck into XYZ event?
In most cases, I don’t know who organizes which events. 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.
Will you list my truck on your site?
If you consistently serve food and/or beverages at different public locations around San Diego, email email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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? What permits do I need? Where can I park?
We are a fan site and don’t own a truck, so unfortunately, we can’t help you with any of these things. Sorry!
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. I take no responsibility for sending you somewhere that is truck-less!
Why don’t more trucks park downtown/North County/East County/etc?
I don’t own a truck, so I can’t say. I imagine they need to go to locations that are successful for them with enough customers to warrant the trip out there. They also need to be able to find a place to park legally. I have heard in some locations that brick & mortar restaurants will call the police and have them kick out the trucks (like downtown). I would be happy to hear a truck’s opinion on this issue because I only have my assumptions.
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!
