Plus, the app provides an alert for when your food is ready, so you can pick it up, easy-peasy!

So far, this L.A.-based, food truck inspired Planet has more than 10,000 combined app downloads of Bistro Planet and Bistro Connect; distribution partnerships with property management companies like Sequoia Equities and Lakewood Apartments; a strong social media presence with 36,000+ Twitter followers and 16,000+ Instagram followers; and 300+ food truck partners in Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Orange County.

It helps streamline the whole food truck experience, so you have more time to test out those carnitas tacos...and that taco truck can set up more easily. Everyone eats -- and everyone benefits.
