Roaming Hunger’s food-truck locator is rolling in KC
Kansas City’s food-truck scene has wheeled onto the national landscape. Roaming Hunger, a food-truck locator, launched in KC Wednesday. The site, which allows eaters to find the current locations of trucks as well as book them for catering or events (Roaming Hunger derives its revenue from bookings), represents the fulfillment of a pledge that founder Ross Resnick made to lead developer John Morgan Martin as he built the site in 2009.
“I made a promise to John, who is from Kansas City, that we could eventually make it out there,” Resnick says. “We look for cities where there is a collection of 25 to 30 food vendors. It just took a little longer than I expected.”
Roaming Hunger, which is based in Los Angeles, now has dedicated food pages for 33 cities. And each has its own food-truck culture.
