Food trucks have been popping up all around the country (for that matter all across the world). Since this past June we have tried to keep an eye on the trucks surfacing on the streets and to our surprise, there has not been much of a slowdown of trucks or cities around the country that have spawned new trucks (we have seen an average of at least a half dozen new trucks every week).

2011 Food Truck Rookie of the Year

Because of this we wanted to ask our readers to share their favorites with us. We are asking you to submit your choice for the 2011 Food Truck Rookie of the Year. You may submit your choice via the poll below.

We will collect your submissions through the remainder of the year, and in January we will present a poll of the top ten trucks or carts submitted, so that you may help us choose the Rookie of the Year. You may submit as many trucks or carts from your area as you like, but they must be submitted separately to be included. There are no requirements to the location (hint hint to Canadian and overseas food truck owners), type or style of food this mobile vendor sells, so feel free to submit a new savory food vendor, dessert truck or even a mobile hot dog vendor. The only stipulation is that they opened for business after December 31st of 2010.

UPDATE: We would like to thank all of those who voted for their choice of rookie food truck of the year. We originally had planned on only allowing 10 trucks into this poll, but due to the fact that we had a large number of trucks tied with over 50 votes each, we have opened this poll up to 15 trucks. We will keep this poll open for the next 2 weeks to make sure you are all able to get your votes in. Once the votes are counted we will announce the winner.

So get out and let everyone know…tell us who your Rookie Mobile Food Vendor of 2011 is.
