    The Street Food finder is up to date, though I don’t know if all of the trucks are represented.

    http://streetfoodfinder.com/

    Street Food Finder is great butr not all of the trucks use it.

    Any other ideas about how to make Mondays, Wednesdays or any other day of the week work better – let us know.

    I would encourage people to use Street Food Finder – its is handy.

    TBF, I think there’s a bigger issue here. While restaurants have a permanent place, no food trucks do. There’s web resources, but those are irregular in their consistency or even presence. What I really think should exist would be a website that would quantify the stuff that bogs the less adventurous down

      [*]Location & hours for day(or, week really)[/*]
      [*]Payment method[/*]
      [*]Menu (text or link, and not a freaking PDF or flash site. OMG those people.[/*]
      [*]Vegetarian/Vegan/etc etc[/*]
      [*]Possible allergens (peanuts, dairy, wheat [ie gluten free])[/*]
      [*]Turn around time[/*]
      [*]Call ahead phone #[/*]
      [*]Links to reviews[/*]

    Because in my experience, it really doesn’t take much to deter some folks from trying food carts (again). There’s a twitter roundup thing, but, eh. I think Columbus has a decent food enthusiast culture, and Food Fort has done great work, but I still think part of the Proper Working Foodtruck Culture Machine of Greater Columbus isn’t there yet.

    Maybe more/better advertising? I know there’s a St. James sandwich board now, but maybe some “FOOD TRUCK HERE” type signs on Detroit at both Summit and 4th ends? Aside from CU posting, what advertising has been tried?

    Good Points. A good Website helps a food truck – if you can find it.

    This encapsulates some of the challenges and approaches to findings a truck or cart.

    Not going into September? I’ve been thinking since you posted Wednesday and it’s a tough call, I love having the trucks out on Monday, but I also know its got to be profitable for everyone. Will consult with the Mr. and see if we can brainstorm something.

    MrsGeedeck,

    Thanks for your ongoing support.

    We have Mondays through September and not sure what happens after that.
