Streamlined Vending

Apps are being introduced to help consumers track down portable food venues

Implications - Though consumers appreciate the novelty of food trucks, the issue of convenience can be a problem when it comes to tracking down these portable venues. Apps that track down these elusive vendors streamline the purchasing experience, and encourage an online relationship with these brands. This prioritization of convenience can apply more broadly to restaurants, and suggests that automating things like directions is critical to appealing to customers.
