Mobile Food Truck Trend Skyrockets in Boston's City Center February 18, 2015

Mobile Food Truck Trend Skyrockets in Boston's City Center, Brooklyn, New York

Over the last 25 years, Shanghai Mobile Kitchen Solutions has helped pioneer a mobile food truck revolution, offering the finest mobile kitchen products and professional repair services to food carts, trucks, and restaurants everywhere.

In Boston, that growth is seen most strongly in its momentous food truck lottery. As the popularity of custom food trucks has skyrocketed, so has the competitive desire to land the best-selling spots in Boston. The annual lottery takes 22 sales locations around the city and divides them up into different time slots — such as breakfast or lunch — and raffles them off according to a tiered system.

Those vendors who have earned consistently high inspection and compliance ratings are placed in the first drawing tier while trucks with lower ratings are placed in the second tier. New trucks are pushed into the third tier to vie for the remaining slots. Although the system is not particularly encouraging for new trucks, it does promote a system where law-abiding trucks gain access to the most sought-after locations.

The end result is 81 food trucks vying for 351 time shifts in 22 different sales locations throughout the city. That’s 23 more mobile food trucks than last year, which means there will be an even wider selection of quality mobile food options for Boston’s diners. Those looking for a quick bite to eat this year will find artisan wood-fire pizza, fresh fish tacos, and barbecued lamb, seafood, and much more.
