We had the good fortune of connecting with Ellen Gugenberger and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Ellen, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
We created NOMAD Food Truck App because we wanted to bring convenience to ordering from our favorite food trucks. Houston has thousands of delicious food trucks, but long lines (and unpredictable weather!) make ordering from them challenging. Plus, we never know where our favorite food trucks are. My husband, Walter, is a software developer, and we decided to create a mobile app that allows customers to find their favorite food trucks and order from them right from their phones. You receive a notification when your order is ready, and you can even leave a tip that goes directly to the truck. With the pandemic, contactless ordering and social distancing became extremely important. So, not only does our app provide a more convenient experience, it provides food trucks with an important tool to safely serve their customers.
What should our readers know about your business?
We are really excited to help connect customers to their favorite food trucks. We hope that, in light of the new needs created by the pandemic, we can help support the food truck industry as it strives to overcome the challenges COVID-19 imposed upon the mobile food community. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
We’d like to thank the three dozen food trucks (and counting!) who have joined the NOMAD Food Truck App Caravan.
