Tracking Food Trucks — There’s An App For That
MIAMI (CBS4) – South Florida is in the midst of a culinary love affair with food trucks, but with dozens of food trucks serving up your favorite grub, it can be hard to keep track of them all, until now.
South Florida’s first iPhone app for finding and mapping the vast fleet of convenient cuisine on wheels is now being launched.
“It’s the best way if you live in South Florida to find where the food trucks are right now,” said Davide Di Cillo, the creator of the Burger Beast Food Truck Tracker App.
The Food Truck Tracker app lists all Miami food trucks, their menus, and a GPS tracker helps you locate the trucks at all times of the day.
“You can see the profile for each truck, and see the menu, you can see the future location they’re going to be,” explained Di Cillo.
“People are always chasing us, which is a good thing. The app definitely makes it easier for them,” said David Garcia, owner of the Fish Box food truck.
South Florida foodies can celebrate the launch of the Food Truck Tracker App at a launch party Friday night at Tamiami Park.
More than 50 trucks will be there from 6:00 – 11:00 p.m.
“You see all these families, they bring out their tailgate gear. It’s a great experience. That’s what they should do tonight,” Garcia said.
The party also features Burger Beast giveaways, including an iPad2 with the Beast’s app pre-installed.
Entrance and parking to the food truck feast is free, just make sure you bring your appetites. Glass containers and pets are not allowed.
