Hungry Saskatoon residents lost downtown searching for their favourite food truck may have just found their lunch-time saviour.Snackmap.com, a locally developed website that uses GPS technology to track the whereabouts of food trucks in the city, launched last week. The site uses Google Maps to show where each food truck is located. It also states whether or not the truck is open for the day.
Saskatoon-based Nova-Tek Innovations needed only three weeks to develop the site. They’re hoping to soon launch Snack Map as an app.
“We started by just sitting around the office, wondering, ‘How can we find these food trucks?’ We were trying to following everyone’s Twitter feed. We figured, ‘There’s got to be a better way to do this’ ” said Evan Taylor, a web developer with Nova-Tek.
