You’ve seen them almost every time you’ve visited a brewery. You’ve probably tried their food at community events. Maybe they’ve even stopped at your office to cater lunch.

Food trucks are a rapidly growing industry. Several call the Historic Triangle home, serving their culinary creations all over the community.

As a restaurant with wheels, you won’t find them in the same place every day. That’s why WYDaily puts together its Food Truck Tracker, a weekly roundup of the mobile kitchens’ whereabouts.

Looking to grab a bite from one of the area’s popular food trucks? Here’s where they will be Sept. 27 through Sept. 30:

The Hungry Pug’s logo — a pug named Vega — died last week at the age of 15, said owner Scott Coeln.

“She was quite an inspiration to us,” Coelln said. “I’m never going to forget her because she’s on my truck. I see her every day.”

Coeln said a portion of his Saturday profits will be donated to Heritage Humane Society.
