For about 20 years, Randy's mobile food trucks have traveled under the radar of the privileged, circulating in neighborhoods and delivering food in Houston and across the state. Randy's and a handful of companies like it — Boxes and Bags Mobile Grocery and Bag Lady on Wheels — go to areas where people are without a car or a local grocery store, or both.
Randy's drivers sell what the company bought from grocery behemoth Sysco Foods — frozen meat, breaded shrimp, catfish nuggets and chicken tenders.
But junk food is the big seller. Pop Tarts, Famous Amos and Oreo cookies. Honey buns, candy bars and corn dogs. Laffy Taffy and cheesecake. Pickles are the only vegetable listed on a Randy's menu.
The food truck craze is sweeping the nation. From thriving cities to small downtown areas, food on wheels is the hip new trend. It’s not just drawing a new crowd of eat-on-the-street customers; it’s bringing in big bucks too. The food truck business pulls in an estimated $804 million in revenue every year, according to an industry report from IBIS World.
