Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

First Applebee's rolled out a food truck. Then the Gap introduced its own food truck, which will be rolling through several towns (although not Denver) as part of a "tacos and denim" campaign.

Asks Owen:

Where's the Ikea truck?!

Yum -- mobile meatballs!

Here's Jay's take on corporations crashing this trend:

What pisses me off the most is how the corporations disguise their trucks as cute, charming, independently owned business ventures. Why don't they have the balls to use Gap or Applebee's branding?

We've asked it before, and we'll ask it again: Does this development indicate that the food-truck trend has hit a dead-end?

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
