National Food Truck Day was created to celebrate food trucks, and was started by DJ Rick McNeely of the Fishbowl Radio Network in Arlington, Texas. Food trucks vary in the type of foods they prepare and sell, from ice cream to frozen or prepackaged food, to meals prepared from scratch. In the 1880s Thomas H. Buckley was manufacturing different models of these and included in them appliances such as sinks, refrigerators, and stoves. Following this, food trucks started serving at factories, construction sites, and other locations with blue-collar workers. Food trucks have gained in popularity following the Great Recession, and they are now found in more places than just large cities.
