36 Food Truck Innovations

From Yogurt Food Trucks to Eccentric Roadkill Food Trucks

— January 29, 2016 — Autos
From branded food trucks that are a novel way to debut a new product offering to popular mobile dining concepts that are sure to lead to permanent locations, there are plenty of food truck innovations that will spark inspiration regardless of industry.

One food truck that exemplifies greater movements within the food and beverage industry is the Unwanted Animal Kitchen (or 'Keuken van het Ongewenstdier' in Dutch), which transforms "road kill" into an elegant dining experience. With menu items such as geese croquettes and Pigeon Plate, the quirky concept points to a futuristic view of pests and critters that stems from fears around the global food shortage.

Whether you are looking to grab a bite or are seeking inspiration, such food truck innovations are sure to help you gain an appreciation for the fast-evolving concept.
