Food trucks take Tucson by storm

Video Posted on Updated on

Food vending is on the rise in Tucson and it’s coming on wheels.

Food trucks are making a move right now and it’s more organized than one would think.

Instead of competing with one another, many food trucks have decided to work together in order to promote their movement.

They are doing this by holding food truck roundups.

A time and place are determined; the word is put out through social media and a communal website (; and the participating food trucks meet up and sell food.

This has been a successful business strategy that looks to be evolving at a tremendous rate.
