Food trucks in Calgary

Are there any food trucks in Calgary? I'd like to start one, and want to research this area first.
Any suggestions/tips/leads are welcome!

  1. Stephen Avenue has food carts/trailers (not trucks) when the weather is nice, e.g. the wood-fired pizza place that was there last year. I don't know if that will get you any closer to the answer you want, but mobile food does exist here in some form.

    1. Well, Jo Jo's BBQ was supposed to open this past weekend, but got delayed, so I guess technically that food truck isn't here, but she is trying! Other than that, I don't personally know of any others.

        Thanks for the info! Where was Jo Jo's going?

          She has a website here to give you more info on her and her truck.

      2. The only one I know of is Mario's aside from the ones that go to construction sites. I would recommend starting with finding out health department requirements and they might be able to tell you who has permits.

          In the summer there's "The Fry Guy" in Dover/Forest Lawn. 36 st and 26 ave SE.

          Rocky's burger bus, Manchester Road? just a few blocks east of Blackfoot trail on the street between Shaw GMC and Mary Brown's.

          The was a burger van by the Aero Space museum on McKnight but have not seen it for a while. That seems like a good spot to me.

            Not necessarily a full-on food truck, but the hotdog guy at the Southland & MacLeod appears to have upgraded to a larger trailer style setup. IIRC the trailer is painted with a "Fry Guy" logo, but I'm pretty sure it's the same guy who has been there before because he is still selling the Bulgarian sausage (which is AWESOME!)
