CHICAGO, IL – In an effort to raise awareness of the emerging food truck industry in Chicago, local resident Andrew Wolohan conducted an independent study to explore the unique characteristics of Chicago’s food truck environment. The below infographic illustrates a snapshot of the research findings, which detail Chicago food truck operational information, consumer demographics, and sales transaction data.
These findings are based on a survey of 21 Chicago food truck operators conducted during summer/fall 2013. All demographics and sales figures shown are calculated in aggregate, based on reported estimates by the food truck owners and representatives interviewed as part of this study. A special thank you goes out to each of the operators who have participated in this research—it is your risk-taking and entrepreneurial drive that allow Chicago consumers to enjoy such a diverse, high-quality offering of mobile cuisine.
