Food Truck Frenzy
We live in Oregon right? People think of a lot of stuff when they think about Oregon and one of those things is the extreme abundance of food trucks! Food trucks are so much fun! It is awesome that there are so many different types of food available prepared in a truck! But how is it soo successfully done? One of the reasons we believe that they are so successful is that many of they are powered, at least partially, by propane.
You may ask, “what might a food truck use propane for?” That is a great question with an easy answer! They use it for all sorts of things! One thing that a food truck might use propane for is to power their cooking sources. This could be an stove or oven or even other cooking/heating appliances! Obviously, the cooking station is a key part of the food truck if they want to cook food!
Something else that propane might be used for on a food truck is the refrigeration system! Some trucks also have other cooling systems, such as freezers, ice makers, or ice cream machines! These can all be powered by propane.
So basically everything about a food truck can be run on propane. I mean literally all the electricity as well. Even some are switching to propane powered vehicles rather than gasoline powered. The reason they are doing this is because propane is cheaper than gasoline, they run much cleaner, and they have engines that last longer.
We feel like the food truck industry is really making a great choice by switching to propane for their vehicles and other accessories! Because the food truck industry is such a huge support of Propane we want to support them as well so here is a list of different food trucks and food truck hangouts that you can go and enjoy an array of food at.
