National Food Truck Day started in 2016 and – since then – the event has attracted hundreds of participating vendors each year. Now, the holiday is taking on special significance given the pandemic’s effect on the food industry.
Fortune recently reported 10% of restaurants nationwide closed since 2020, 22.5% of which were mobile vendors. Now more than ever, it’s important to support and celebrate the essential workers and small business owners who kept their service windows open during this trying year.
This year, National Food Truck Day (happening June 25) will become a weeklong celebration from June 20 to June 27.
For food truck owners who wish to participate, it’s FREE and takes 2 minutes to sign up.
