Food trucks and concession trailers are inherently social.  They gather in densely populated areas, lead to communal eating and rely on social media and word of mouth to spread their business.  Did I mention that 47% of millennials have eaten at a food truck or concession food trailer and 88% are interested in trying new food experiences? (Technomic).  In other words, concession food trucks and university campuses are a match made in foodie Heaven!

The school food trucks culture is a reflection of the values of the Millennial Generation.  It places a premium on individualized experiences over the mass produced, relies on social media to interact with the community and allows for easy feedback.  The arrival of a custom made college food truck or concession trailer on campus will further foster the engaged, communal spirit unique to college campuses while creating a new gathering spot to sample diverse, delicious dishes that will keep the student body happy and well fed.
