Tuesday Trends: Food Trucks
Jan 15, 2013 6:21:41 AM Mahaffey Tent & Event Rentals
This new trend has become one of our absolute favorites. Who would have thought that food trucks would be the new thing for 2013. Mahaffey has fallen in love with the idea of serving hors d'oeuvres, entrees and late night munchies right out of a van, taking catering to a whole new level!
The possibilities for your event are endless...you could have the food truck serve entire meals, or surprise your guests with a late night service, driving in and serving coffee and donuts (possibly even inside your venue during colder months). Two local food trucks that we recommend are Graze Food Truck and Fuel Food Truck. Neither will disappoint in service or food!
Graze Food Truck is the cutest moving vehicle we've ever seen, and could add that perfect touch to your spring or summer event! Graze can provide everything from classic Southern comfort foods to soups, salads, sandwiches and everything in between. It started with the purchase of a 1983 Chevy Step Van in 2011, and in September 2012, Graze Food Truck hit the streets. They seek to use fresh, locally grown ingredients whenever possible and can cater your next private event, corporate party or wedding.

Fuel Food Truck is another favorite; they even catered our Safety Luncheon last fall. The food, made from scratch, is to die for. Only organic ingredients are used, including antibiotic-free, humanely raised, grass/vegetarian fed meat and poultry. Not only can this truck be at your next event, but it can also be seen driving around Memphis, serving spots all over our great city. Mahaffey's two favorite dishes are the Grilled Cheese and Bison Tacos.
