Finding a food truck in Omaha will soon be easier.
The Omaha Food Truck Association is working on developing an app that will allow food trucks to be tracked across the city.
The “OFTA eat” app – a game with the phrase “off to eat” – will be ready in spring, said group president Kelly Keegan.
The association is also working to build on the downtown weekly Food Truck Thursday event.
Hopefully, on other days of the week, trucks will be brought to various business parks across the city to keep the trucks busy.
The Thursday event was very popular. Keegan estimates it attracts up to 2,000 people during the peak months when the weather is good.
“We want to spread the food and the experience,” he said.
