Philly loves Food Trucks! And what's not to love - they are normally run by creative, dedicated foodies who want to bring unique flavors to the public. And with lower over head, there's more time to talk to their customers!
At a recent XPN Key Studios Session (Lenfest Plaza) I got a chance to talk to 3 great food truck owners. Later, I sent each an email asking if they wanted to participate in a new series on Tinsel & Tine profiling Food Trucks. My first response was from FARM TRUCK.
Farm Truck is run by Kris Pepper & Eliot Coven, look at these guys - if they serve 300 meals a day, then I'm sure they get at least 100 phone numbers as tips. They're so cute they should have a TV show on the CW.
Yet style over substance is far from Kris and Eliot's mission, instead Farm Truck is all about being a healthy alternative in the Food Truck biz, they use local, in-season produce, buy from local bakers, serve organic coffee and go green in as many ways as possible!
The Farm Truck is also a Tailgate Gallery displaying the work of local artists. If you want to know more about Eliot and Kris, they've recently been featured as alumni of their school Philadelphia University and on Grid Magazine.
