Florida food trucks

Located half hour outside Walt Disney World at 10 North Forest Avenue in Apopka is a food truck round up that meets once a month. I lucked out and was in the area on the right week.

My friends from Tampa drove out to take me to this, and we arrived late at 8:00pm. Most of the trucks were sold out or close to it. Below are trucks that were in attendance but unfortunately didn't get food.

With a coverage of hundreds food trucks in dozens of US and Canadian cities the app is designed to make communication between food trucks and their fans much easier. 

People have been tweeting about local food trucks, books were written on the subjects, but now the food trucks have a chance to have their voice above the crowds and have their location known on the map.

Food Trucks application from CyberWalkAbout.com allows people follow their food trucks and if the owner chooses so, to see that truck on the map. The app made appearance in several American and Canadian cities, and now it covers hundreds of trucks.

Features of the Food Trucks app include:
- food trucks' Twitter posts
- Food trucks' map with their current location spots (when geo-location enabled by a truck)
- descriptions of the food
- sharing with friends
- tweets from other people about particular truck

The app made their appearance in more than 20 U.S. regions (Atlanta, GA; Baltimore, MD; Bay Area, CA; Boston, MA; Charleston, SC; Chicago, IL; Cleveland, OH; Dallas, TX; Houston, TX; Indianapolis, IN; Las Vegas, NV; Los Angeles, CA; Louisville, KY; Miami, FL; Milwaukee, WI; Minneapolis, MN; New Orleans, LA; New York, NY; Orange County, CA; Phoenix, AZ; Portland, OR; Seattle, WA; St. Louis, MO; Washington, DC etc.)

And now the Food Trucks app is starting covering Canadian cities as well:
  • Toronto, ON
  • Vancouver, BC
  • Calgary, AB
  • Edmonton, AB
  • Ottawa, ON

“The truck owners are eager to join the service because it is a free advertisement for them - all they have to do is turn on their geo-location when they tweet. Yes, it is absolutely free!” said Uki D. Lucas, founder of CyberWalkAbout.com

Device requirements:
* Android 1.6 and up
* 1.7  MB
