In 2008, Ross Resnick came up with an incredible idea that would allow him to pursue two of his lifelong passions: food and technology. He combined his love for technology and undeniable excitement for gourmet food to create Roaming Hunger.
In a nutshell, Roaming Hunger connects foodies with their favorite food trucks.The emergence of a struggling economy and the need for a fast-paced progressive community has provided incredible economic opportunities for mobile restaurants. Enter Ross with a way to track, catalogue, feature, advertise and market this fascinating food truck revolution.
Prior to Roaming Hunger, food trucks used the widely confusing world of Twitter to let foodies know where they were parked. Understanding the necessity to simplify this process, Ross developed a way for his site to aggregate these tweets onto an easy-to-use Google map.With the site growing as fast as the thriving industry, foodies can find their favorite food truck while on-the-go with the Roaming Hunger app, which now tracks more than 6,000 food trucks throughout the U.S. Roaming Hunger has become the ultimate food truck authority and currently ranks as one of the top 30 food and drink apps.
In addition, Roaming Hunger provides three additional services for businesses and consumers— the first being Book a Food Truck. Food truck catering is the staple and the future of the industry.
