Franchise: A Food Truck Evolution

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

These aren’t your typical food truckers— these are the pioneers of the food truck industry who have created brands that extend from food trucks into other offshoots. We will be exploring the role of the food truck in the evolution of these food brands and talk to each entrepreneur about their strategy/mindset when they started their food truck venture and THEN their evolved strategy as they looked to expand and scale into restaurants, grocery stores or food truck expansion. We want to tell the stories of how food culture has been shaped by the modern food truck.
