The goal of this Interactive Qualifying Project is to design a food truck that is able to provide food for 500 people per day. It has to present an aspect of entertainment, and be aesthetically pleasing. Food truck operators are forced to work in a cramped environment throughout their working day. Most food trucks today do not provide any level of entertainment and are not aesthetically pleasing. For a better working environment for operators, an expanding mechanism is incorporated into the food truck, in which the passenger side of the food truck expands outward when it is in the operating condition. A higher profile mobile kitchen is more likely to become noticed by pedestrians walking by. This food truck design will be the next step in the evolution of mobile kitchens.
