The mobile food truck industry is in its 7th year of monumental growth. Once referred to as roach coaches, that moniker no longer fits. Mobile food is the fastest growing trend in the food service industry. Broadcasting their whereabouts on Twitter and other social media networks has replaced the need of a culinary entrepreneur to maintain a brick and mortar store front.
Aside from the assistance of social media, it’s their unique options like; Korean Tacos, shredded BBQ Pork on a Waffle, Creme Brulee, and Kobe Beef Sliders, that has been the key to success for these mobile food businesses.
Klout is a San Francisco based company that provides social media analytics that measures a user’s influence across their social network. The analysis is done on data collected from sites such as Twitter and Facebook nd measures the size of a person’s network, the content created, and how other people interact with that content.
Just as we have since 2010, Mobile Cuisine has kept an eye on this tracking and investigated the Klout statistics to see which food truck would be the most influential in 2015.

Please note: You may have noticed some glaring omissions from this year’s list. Due to the number of truck’s that have gone brick & mortar, or switched over to focus on their food brands, we’ve excluded some of those accounts to concentrate on food truck accounts only.
Also, Klout updates their scores daily, so these results will change throughout the year. We arrived at our list based on the Klout scores from 7/23/2015.
