So Many Food Trucks!

Mark had a long list of jokey food truck name ideas, and Paul had a lot of patience. They needed a side project, and, well… here we are.

Is the humble food truck the ultimate expression of culinary joy? Probably not, but they do have a tendency to have cute names. So Many Food Trucks! aims to salute the whimsical naming proclivities of the world’s food trucks, and maybe make you smile for a moment.

But, we’d be remiss if we didn’t take this opportunity to remind you that the hospitality industry has been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. Many restaurants have closed their doors, some for good, and those that haven't are operating at reduced capacity. This means that most restauarant workers are making a lot less money than they used to, and they didn’t use to make all that much.

If you are lucky enough to have a job that lets you work from home, and you have some disposable income, please consider making a donation to a restaurant worker relief fund in your neighborhood. If you don’t know how to find one you could try donating to Restaurant Opportunity Centers United, the Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation or the Southern Smoke Foundation. And if you live in a place where tipping is the norm then remember to tip well next time you pay for a meal.

Thanks for stopping by.

Special thanks to our food truck name contributors: Nathalie Christian, Mark McBride, Paige Paquette.
