Verified BuilderWhen I started back in the summer of 2013, I did so with the goal of building the website into a comprehensive resource to help entreprenuers start and operate more profitable mobile food businesses. Overtime, as more people have continued to discover, I’ve received more and more feedback about the information that would be most helpful when starting a business.

One of the requests that I continually received by email was that there wasn’t any place prospective food truck operators could go to find reviews of manufacturers. While the majority of builders out there are legit and produce a quality product, there are many people that had been burned by shady operators. After being emailed enough times I finally decided to listen to the readers and organize the largest list of manufacturers that I could find online to create a place where people could post legitimate feedback about builders and share their experiences. As a result, the manufacturer directory was born.
