Eric Weiner, founder of the rapidly growing (and Rhode Island-based) website FoodTrucksIn, spoke with GoLocal about the rising popularity of the meals on wheels.
"We are excited about food truck popularity nationally. Our goal is to be the go to source for locating and learning about food trucks across the country. We are particularly excited to see the recent explosion of trucks and events in our home state of Rhode Island," said Weiner.
He continued, "Just this weekend alone, there are numerous events across the state featuring food trucks. We are happy to have them all listed on our website and are proud to be sponsoring the beer and wine tent at the 1st Ocean State Food Truck Park Round Up. Over a dozen trucks, entertainment, games, beer and wine. What a great way to start the weekend!"
