FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Brand Innovation Group (Big) partnered with Fort Wayne Food Trucks, Inc. to introduce an app for Apple and Android phones that will make finding where a food truck is located at a lot easier.

The app, Dash n’ Dine,” is designed to pin point each trucks location, show each truck’s menu, specials and hours of operation. The app also tells users what trucks are open at the time the app is being used and how far away the trucks location is.

Big said they received a lot of positive feedback from people in the community when the app first launched at Foodstock, an event that features food trucks, music, and beer. Big said in its first weekend the app was downloaded nearly 700 times. “Over and over, people mentioned that they’d been waiting for something like this. We were really excited to help make this app a reality,” said Big Strategy Director Ben Gregory.

The ten food trucks associated with Fort Wayne Food Trucks, Inc. are included on the app:
