Real-Time GPS Positions Help Business
One of the biggest crazes currently taking Southern California by storm is the food truck. However, these food trucks aren’t the roach coaches serving up microwaveable burritos on construction sites. Instead, these popular food trucks are offering Korean BBQ, Texas style home cooking and a variety of fusion dishes. These food trucks are mobile restaurants cooking up anything a person can imagine, and doing so with fresh ingredients at reasonable prices. Although many of these modern food truck companies have cult-like followings, having what is essentially a mobile store front can make it difficult for patrons and consumers to know exactly where a particular mobile restaurant is located at any given time. This is the reason why so many mobile restaurants are equipping food trucks with real-time GPS trackers.
GPS Tracking For Food Trucks
Most food truck operations understand their local market, utilize both twitter and Facebook to stay connected with their fans and have to know where mobile assets are positioned at all times in order to maximize potential profit. This is why real-time GPS trackers are the perfect fit for this particular form of service-based business model. Through ShareSpot technology that is free to any user of the SilverCloud GPS system, companies can paste an HTML code on their company website or facebook page that will allow anyone to access the location of any food truck. This data is not only easy to interpret, but it can also be accessed by any mobile communication device or cellular phone with Internet capabilities.
What is even cooler is that the same real-time GPS tracking solution will help mobile restaurants manage food trucks in the field, improve routing efficiency, eliminate excessive fuel consumption and provide auto-theft security.
“Social media has been instrumental in the success of most food truck businesses because the younger generation is more in tuned to using twitter or facebook to access information and food truck companies have been able to leverage that knowledge to better connect with their foodie audience”, said a fleet tracking specialist for a GPS company that works with numerous food truck operations. “Food truck businesses are growing constantly and that has resulted in these food truck operations turning to even more detailed and unique avenues for customers to access food truck locations. GPS tracking has been the tool that helps food truck businesses share locational data to consumers resulting in real-time data and less hungry patrons.”
There are a few different options when it comes to a reliable GPS tracker for food trucks whether it be a tracking device that can be used as a portable unit or one hard-wired for long term use. The best thing food truck businesses interested in equipping their trucks with GPS can do is contact a expert and more details on the available options.
