Mission

cartattack thinks finding and eating at food carts should be easy.

Why

The idea for cartattack came while showing off Portland to my visiting friends and family. They wanted to try out some of the famous street food in this city, but it was unclear how far we'd need to walk and what kind of food we'd find once we arrived. I wanted a way to figure out what food carts are near me, so when I'm out exploring somewhere new I'll always be a click away from finding a delicious and affordable outdoor meal. So that's what I created.

Local

Food carts are all about the food. They survive removed from the decorated dining room, servers and hosts, targeted advertisements, and branded cups and napkins. But a business so small can be elusive; sometimes relocating, opening at odd hours or closing early for the day. cartattack sources social media to make eating local easier.
