Data can be uploaded to any windows based laptop. $695 is cheap insurance to secure detailed proof that time/temp logs are being maintained as per HACCP regulations.

    Dear NFTA Board of Directors & Staff:


    Does the NFTA have a policy in place with regard to drug & alcohol impaired driving and the grounds for the suspension, probation and termination of association membership? In 2016, a U.K. ice cream truck driver was twice found to be under the influence of cocaine, while serving ice cream to children on his regular route. The company allowed him to return to work following the first offense, so it may be beneficial to consider updating your policies with regard to DUI and DUI-D among your association members. Illicit drugs were also found within the ice cream truck at the time of at least one of the arrests for cocaine DUI-D.


    The following City of San Diego and SDPD roadside drug testing initiative is generating positive results for DUI-D enforcement and road & community safety:

    http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/public-safety/sd-me-pot-test-20170316-story.html


    For the first time in U.S. history, more fatally-injured drivers tested positive for drugs than for alcohol, with 43% positive for drugs compared to 37% for alcohol, according to the GHSA. Both the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety and GHSA have recommended drug & alcohol screening all DUI and DUI-D arrestees, as well as all fatally-injured and surviving drivers involved in fatal collisions.


    Thank you, and I hope that this is beneficial information.


    Best regards,

    Hello,

    I hope you are having a wonderful day. I was wondering how to go about starting an association for Arizona. Many people in Phoenix, Flagstaff, and Prescott have been having difficulty setting up shop, do to city councils fear of hurting brick and mortar businesses. We would like to rally and try to negotiate and would be easier with a little guidance from NFTA. Thank you so much for your time.

    Hi there,

    Are their opportunities for vendors within this organization? I offer a variety of sustain-ably sourced, high quality smoked salmon and seafood options that would be incredible in menus. I’d love to work with you guys on something.

Currently there are over 20 food trucks in Lubbock, Texas and we just recently divided into two groups.

    Food trucks are often plugged into untested and questionable power sources. Yes they all have generators but for organized events the norm is to plug in where available. There are a host of electrical problems that can damage property and present safety hazards. Progressive Industries Electrical Management Systems can protect a food truck in the same way as we have been doing for the RV industry for years. Check out our website to see more details or feel free to email or call me. I would be more than happy to organize a webinar to educate your members about the pitfalls of temporary power sources or simply help you educate your members.

    Hello,

    My name is Steve LaRosa. I am currently working on building a food hub in Pittsburgh that would include a food truck commissary, and aquaponic farm and a workforce training program. As of this moment, I am working on this project at a local startup competition, and I was hoping I might be able to get your support for the idea. The more people and organizations I have backing this, the more likely it is that this concept will move forward. Any help or support you could give would be phenomenal.

    Food Truck Evolution into a Gathering Place – the Oahu Factor


    History

    A food truck is a large vehicle equipped to cook and sell food. Food trucks are on the front line of the street food industry that serves an estimated 2.5 billion people every day. In the US, food trucks are a $1.2 billion industry.


    A modern-day food truck isn’t just an ordinary taco truck one might find at a construction site. These gourmet trucks’ menus run the gamut of ethnic and fusion cuisine. Often focusing on limited but creative dishes at reasonable prices, they offer customers a chance to experience food they otherwise may not eat.


    Oahu Factor Evolution

    The humble food truck however can be the platform on which to build a Gathering Place which we call the Oahu factor named after that Hawaiian island whose name means the Gathering Place. Communications technology is getting smarter, lower in cost and physical size and presents a great opportunity to upgrade these mobile food dispensers so they can serve the communities they visit with a far greater range of services and even serve in times of disasters as a Point Of Presence for the victims of earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados and more.

    The evolution in wireless technology and the diminishing cost of digital storage devices opens amazing opportunities to equip food truck with devices which can revolutionize the role of the truck from simply functioning as a place where people ‘grab and go’ with their food.


    Imagine a food truck equipped to function not only as a mobile restaurant but also as a mobile wireless TV station, a local social media center enabling people in the vicinity of the truck to meet each other and also distribute to them information about local happenings. The addition of this these new services will attract people to gather near the food truck to be entertained, socialize and be informed and in the process create a captive audience to which other services can be added by for example the installation of small vending machines to the truck to sell consumer products.


    Enabling Technology

    Our company, Chatting Spot Limited, markets a patent pending technology which can provide the mobile TV station with curated media content and a social media hotspot delivered through its Chatting Spot ® Wi-Fi smart hub.


    The Wi-Fi smart hub is a shoe size box which is battery operated, weighs less than 3 pounds and can be attached to a food truck in a matter of minutes. The Chatting Spot ® Wi-Fi hub provides a browser based service so that anyone that enters its hotspot simply selects Chatting Spot on their smartphone or IPad Wi-Fi selection and they are immediately connected to the service without having to download an APP. This makes the service truly anonymous and so users do not have to identify themselves when they view television programs or post text messages on the electronic bulletin board provided by the service or even purchasing consumer items from vending machines placed on the truck.


    The truck operator is provided with Chatting Spot ® scratch cards which visitors to the truck can purchase with cash to access pay per view movies and TV programs, purchase consumer items from the vending machines or use the private text chad mode on the social media bulletin board. The Wi-Fi hub works with all major brands of smart phones, tablet and laptop computers so that users can access all these services on their own devices.


    Media Content Service

    Chatting Spot ® has arrangements in place with licensed movie and TV show content aggregators enabling it to provide both the equipment and the content for a food truck to function as a mobile Wi-Fi based TV station. The Chatting Spot ® Wi-Fi hub has both a wired and Wi-Fi connection which enables the truck owner to update overnight via the internet the contracted curated movies and TV shows when the truck is parked at its garage.


    Connections
