In 2008, Roy Choi sold Asian-infused tacos from his truck in Los Angeles. Although Kogi BBQ wasn’t the first food truck in American history, Choi sparked a movement that’s continuing to thrive today. According to IBISWorld, the food truck industry is worth nearly $1 billion and has grown by 7.3 percent in the past five years. Currently, there are more than 4,000 food trucks in the U.S. with more than 14,000 people employed in the industry.
