The gourmet food truck industry is steadily growing across the country and even the world. Once referred to as roach coaches, within the last 4 years mobile food has made a strong comeback to become the fastest growing trend in the restaurant industry. Broadcasting their whereabouts on Twitter and other networks has replaced the need maintain a brick and mortar business.
These trucks cover the full gamut of cuisines available including vegetarian and vegan delicacies. This year Mobile Cuisine Magazine has tracked and investigated the Klout statistics to see which vegan food truck is the most influential for 2012.
