The Short Version: When couples want to turn their wedding into an unforgettable culinary experience, they visit RoamingHunger.com. Since 2009, the food truck catering experts have been helping people take weddings, parties, work events, or any celebration worthy of great food to the next level. Roaming Hunger Founder Ross Resnick said the company is all about bringing people together — whether they’re colleagues, friends, family members, or strangers — through unexpected and joyful moments. Food trucks are interesting and memorable places to grab a meal, and Roaming Hunger wants to bring them to anyone who’s hungry.
Roaming Hunger started in 2009 as a passion project to support gourmet food truck owners while also helping people create lasting memories around great meals. As the company grew, Roaming Hunger Founder Ross Resnick expanded his vision to meet the needs of an insatiable user base.
According to Mircea Vlaicu, Senior Growth Marketing Manager at Roaming Hunger, it’s the food fans that inspired the company’s expanded business model.
“People started asking if we could help them find food trucks for their weddings, birthdays, and other special events. That’s how we got into food truck catering and added our Agency and Marketplace offerings,” he said. “We have relationships with the most reliable vendors in the market, and we guarantee service and support in case last-minute replacements are needed.”
People can download the Roaming Hunger app or visit its website to select their location and find nearby trucks, and the company has a team dedicated to serving customers’ catering needs. Katriel Rotramel, Director of Business and Product Operations at Roaming Hunger, said the company takes pride in helping people book the best food trucks for any event, across the county.
“We are proud to be associated with so many special moments — whether it be a wedding, a family party, or work event that brings smiles to faces,” she said.
Based in Los Angeles, Roaming Hunger leverages its network to create unique brand programs designed to inspire action and engagement. Clients, including HBO, StubHub, NBC, Capital One, Ben & Jerry’s, and even famous musical artists, have partnered with Roaming Hunger’s Experiential Marketing Agency to increase their brand awareness.
The platform is designed to make it easy for anyone — from daters to corporations — to find in-demand food trucks, enjoy a great meal, and make some lasting memories.
Roaming Hunger is the leading provider of turnkey food truck catering, concessions, and branded promotions, with a network of over 12,000 food trucks — and counting.
The company taps into that network to customize any event to your taste while managing the entire process. Kat said that customers appreciate the platform’s simplicity in planning special occasions as well as its tool for finding a food truck to catch up with while on a first date.
“People can use our free food truck locator to find nearby food trucks in real time for a delicious first date,” Kat said. “We love being there to help people out no matter where they are in their relationships.”
And Roaming Hunger users seem to agree. Candice B. from Athens, Georgia, raved about the company’s customer service, attention to details, and overall experience, after using it for a recent event.
“Oh my goodness. It was AMAZING. The guests were so happy and everyone enjoyed it! Thank you for your amazing customer service and abundance of joy and enthusiasm for our guests! I am so, so grateful.”
Reliability has always been one of the company’s pillars of success. In fact, the 120% Roaming Hunger Guarantee means that you will receive 120% of the money you paid for catering if a food truck has to back out after you book it — which is rare.
Roaming Hunger is delighted to offer versatile packages for engaged couples and those planning other special events. Kat said that planning food truck-catered weddings can be challenging if you don’t have the right kind of support.
“That’s why we created the Weddings department. Food truck wedding catering isn’t like normal catering, which is why you’re hiring a food truck in the first place,” Kat said. “We’ll help you navigate the entire process to make sure you get the perfect food truck for your special day. Just make sure your venue allows outside catering or food trucks, and we’ll work with you to cover the rest.”
Once couples secure a booking with Roaming Hunger, they are assigned a personal food truck coordinator to help them select the caterer and menu that’s right for their special day. Wedding services can include the reception, rehearsal dinner, late-night snack, or even a next day brunch for family and friends.
“We spend a lot of time talking to our customers. We want to know what their vision is for their wedding day,” Kat said.
When blogger Lauren Kodiak got married, she and her husband quickly realized that using a traditional catering company would likely mean that they’d have to spend a fortune and guests would still likely go home hungry.
“We couldn’t be happier with our choice to have a pizza truck and ice cream truck cater our wedding,” Lauren wrote in a post on TheKitchn.com. “We were able to stay in our budget, serve our guests plenty of delicious food, stay true to our values about food, and enjoy our wedding without all the ‘shoulds’ a traditional wedding forces upon you.”
Jessica B. was grateful to Roaming Hunger for helping her have a successful, budget-friendly wedding. In her Yelp review, she wrote, “Roaming Hunger was a joy to work with and saved us so much time, worry, and money on our wedding day.”

The website lists partner food trucks in the US, Canada, Spain, France, Ireland, the UK, and the UAE, and the food quality has come a long way since the early days. In an article for Thrillist on the Best 21 Food Trucks in America, Rachel Freeman wrote that today’s food trucks are on par with almost any restaurant.
“These 21 trucks take street food to ridiculous new heights, with inventive chefs turning street food into an art form… art that you can eat while sitting on a curb,” Rachel wrote.
When it comes to taste and quality, the company’s clients can’t stop raving. Jennifer M. of Los Angeles, wrote, “I just want to say that everything you did was amazing. People are still coming up to me telling me how good the food was. It was so good [that] no one even noticed the chaos with the other staff I had hired. Thank you so much.”
Roaming Hunger is just as invested in vendors and food truck owners as it is to helping people throw spectacular events and eat exceptional food.
That’s why the company created a marketplace to provide truck owners with the keys to success from the very beginning. People can find information on buying, building, selling, or leasing a food truck. Entrepreneurs looking to start a business can get up and running quickly by tapping into Roaming Hunger’s catering network.
Yoshiteru Ueda, owner of Yo’s Crepes, knows firsthand what it’s like to be an entrepreneur working with Roaming Hunger — and said he appreciated the company’s support. “Roaming Hunger made me more comfortable and confident in starting a food truck,” he said in a testimonial on the site. “Their team is awesome to work with.”
At Roaming Hunger, you won’t just find a team that cares about business — you’ll find a team that appreciates work-life balance. It is a family-oriented atmosphere where employees can bring their dogs to work, take meditation breaks, have a midday basketball game, and still get home early enough to be with the people they love.
“We make sure that all of our clients are well taken care of during our work hours. We try to make every experience memorable,” Mircea said. “We all work hard, obviously, but we are all about balance and family. That’s pretty rare in LA.”
