Which US Cities will have the Most Growth in the Mobile Food Industry?

7 105

New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington DC, Portland, Austin, and Miami currently rank among the top in totals of mobile food vendors within their city limits. What we are hoping to find, is who our readers feel will be able to grow into this tier, or even grow faster than these cities are in regards to the number of food trucks or food carts they license.

Currently, there are a number of cities that are re-working legislation to promote more vendors, but is there a diamond in the rough, which already has the proper infrastructure in place?

You tell us. (you may vote for up to 5 cities)

We have left a slot open for “other” cities, to vote for, if you put a vote in for “other”, please share which city you feel ranks in your top 5 in the comment section below.

We will hold this poll open for the next couple of weeks. Once the votes are tabulated, we will share the results in a future story here at Mobile Cuisine Magazine.



  1. There are so many new cities that are starting to grow, the list is almost endless. Other cities of note should include Sacramento CA, Cleveland and Columbus OH.

    • We included them in the top ranked cities at the top of the article. Miami’s growth has been amazing over the last year, and in our opinion, puts them in the top ranks already.

  2. Sacramento, CA – a higher percentage of growth among new trucks in the past year than any other city on the list, according the the California Restaurant Association (more than 300%!).

    • We consider Miami to already to have reached the top tier mobile food cities, and you are right, they are still growing. But we are looking at cities that may only have a dozen or so trucks, and which of those cities the readers feel will grow the fastest in the next year.
