With demand high, local developers create food truck apps

Guy Romo likes local.His truck, MotoChef, specializes in serving food that comes from right here at home. He spends a lot of time finding those ingredients."Basically, most of the things you have here came off the farm two days ago," Romo said.Now, two apps are being developed to help people find him and the dozens of other trucks across Oklahoma City.The challenge for hungry customers: finding a truck with something you want, knowing if they're open... and since the very nature of food trucks is being mobile, finding where the trucks are."We were thinking what would make life easier for a food truck owner," Walter Colindres said.Colindres and his team is developing the Lokal Food Truck app. He says his app focuses on helping you find new places."We don't necessarily want to become a locator type thing, we kind of want to become a discovery platform, so you know about MotoChef, or Roxy's Ice Cream, but you may not know about the Saucy Sicilian," Colindres said.Travis Stephens and Josh DeLozier co-found TruckItOKC. Their app has a strong social media aspect, and allows trucks to be creative when uploading menus, for example. "It's all about the trucks, and all about finding where they're at and the style in which they want to be found," Stephens said.Both apps have lots of great features that will help the food truck connoisseur find the perfect meal from the palm of your hand."It's going to revolutionize the food truck industry from a food lovers perspective in Oklahoma City," DeLozier said.For more on Lokal Food Truck, visit: more on TruckItOKC, visit:
