Today, I decided to create an organized list of the best food-truck infographics I could find from across the internet. And in case you’re not familiar with what an infographic is, it’s essentially an online poster that provides a lot of statistics / data about a certain topic in a visually appealing manner.

Surprisingly, you can learn a lot about the industry just by browsing these different graphics. For example, did you know that street food is consumed by 2.5 billion folks every single day? Or that the average hotdog stand costs about $2,000? Or that the busiest day for the typical food truck is a Monday? Fascinating stuff.

I learned each of these figures from the Food Trucks and Social Media graphic at in case you’re interested.

As mentioned earlier, I’ve organized links to my top picks below. Also, if you’ve got any recommendations with graphics I’ve missed, feel free to email me directly to support -AT- I want to make this the most comprehensive list available online. I hope you enjoy it!
