History




In 2009, TheDailyCity.com's Mark Baratelli created Taco Truck Taste Test, a monthly food truck meet-up and TheDailyCity.com Mobile Art Show, a monthly art show in a moving van. In 2010, he wrote about Hell's Kitchen Food Truck Bazaar and suggested someone bring the idea to Orlando. No one did. In January 2011, someone suggested we do an event like the ones in Miami. Mark did it on March 29, 2011: Orlando's first food truck event. Later that year, he had the idea to take the event on the road. Now it travels to 11 towns a month.
