LOCAL foodies will be delighted this Friday evening, with Wafflepopz, American BBQ Chicken and Birdman Food Truck setting up pop-ups at the Gunnedah Showgrounds.
Open from 4pm to 8:30pm, the food vans will offer a range of different items for members of the community to come try out.
This is not the first time they have come to Gunnedah, having also set up shop during the Gunnedah Christmas Markets in the past.
American BBQ chicken specialise in their double stacked burgers, smoked brisket and pork and Birdman Food Truck will aim to please customers with their fried chicken sandwich and sweet n' spicy popcorn chicken.
But local sweet-tooths will no doubt have their eye on Wafflepopz which offers, among other things, waffles, churros, milkshakes and iced coffees in a range of flavours including biscoff, M&Ms and caramilk.
While the community has recently expressed concerns about the amount of pop-up food vans that are coming to town, Wafflepopz owner Deep Shah said his intention was to boost the local economy.
"Where we can we try and buy local produce like bananas and strawberries, we stay in local hotels to try and help the businesses out," he said.
"And ourselves we eat at local cafes and try and support the local community as much as they support us."
The trio of food trucks are doing a tour of the region, travelling to Tamworth on Saturday and then setting up in Scone on Sunday.
Mr Shah explained why pop-ups were so prevalent at the moment, revealing they have been forced to adapt in order to earn an income.
"We used to specialise at major events and festivals, obviously that's not happening at the moment so we're doing regional towns with pop-ups," he stated.
"We're trying to get our food truck out and do some work otherwise we wouldn't have worked for a whole year.
"We've had a great response from the community and the support has been good."
