Announcing our new content management system (CMS) for food trucks and food truck parks!
When we launched the site and app in late April we knew that the system we created would only be useful if: food truck and food truck park operators had the power to edit their own information; new trucks and parks could sign up to be a part of what we’d built; and, most importantly, hours and locations could be edited on the fly as these migrant deliciousness-factories drive around our fair city.
So today we’re releasing the CMS system—something that’s been in the works since day 1 but that we wanted to perfect before releasing it into the wild. For users, the CMS means you’re more likely to see up-to-date info on your favorite food trucks and food truck parks. (It also means you should hassle your favorite trucks and parks about updating their info frequently).
For trucks and parks, the CMS offers:
- A quick sign up process to add your truck or park to our system in case we missed you
- An easy interface for editing your truck/park info, including: menu; logo; description; food types; Facebook/Twitter/website links; phone number and a bunch of other things
- A scheduling tool that allows you to set hours and locations up to a week in advance, editing those hours and locations at any time
We’re really excited to get this tool out the door and into the hands of the truck and park operators, who have been hugely supportive so far.
We’re not finished making improvements to the site or iOS app. We’re also still planning on developing a native Android app as soon as time allows (for now, grab our bookmarklet on Google Play). Thanks for bearing with us as we squeeze in time around our day jobs to make this happen.
Yours in good eatin’,
Taylor and the Sweb team
