Arkansans Celebrate National Food Truck Day

BENTONVILLE, Ark. -- Oct. 11 marks a special day for foodies everywhere, as food trucks from around Northwest Arkansas converged in Bentonville to celebrate 'National Food Truck Day.' 

Food trucks set up shop at 8th Street Market in Bentonville.  Though food trucks have been popular in large cities for quite some time now, the trend is taking hold in Northwest Arkansas.

Jennifer Rollins is a co-owner of the Kind Kitchen food truck.  She said that food trucks are not only great for adding variety to an area, but are also a good consideration for people who think they may one day want to open a storefront. 

"Here with the growing population, it's a great way for people to get fed and get a diverse option of food and it's a great way for people that want to get into a brick and mortar to test out their menu," Rollins said. 

Food truck owners also said at the event that one of the best parts about having a mobile kitchen is being able to go wherever the crowds are.
