Factors that MatterDepending on the owner or show, the venue and volume or who your friendly competition might be, are all factors when building one of their series of trailers. These series are tailored to fit and fill the customers specific needs. From the “sturdy and purposeful” SUPERLite Series to the “Soaring in Stature” 8 Series, all these trailers are considered the best in their class for mobile food prep and service.
Forward MovingIn the main hall of the office building is a very long display, that is a wall of Hitch-Hiker history. Times change and Hitch-Hiker is proud of the progress and milestones they have made as they have changed with it. In seeing the evolution of design and developments of their trailers over the years the progression is amazing. The time Jeff Swartz and his team puts into their research and development has paid off exceedingly for anyone who has purchased a Hitch-Hiker trailer.
ExpectationsAs the years and the generations have changed in the amusement industry, the prospects of better equipment also have changed. The expectations of excellence has been raised over time and Hitch-Hiker achieves this standard with a solid process, award winning graphics and the use of relevant technology helping fulfill these visionary needs.
Hitch-Hiker helps with these expectations as they collaborate in the vision of the concession trailer buyer. This is done on many levels and they call that the Hitch-Hiker Process.
Happening NowIn house developed Digital Menus by Hitch-Hiker have been a hit since day one when offered. These menus are like no others on the food midway. They are designed and created to be attractive and complimentary to the aesthetic of each trailer. They are also interactive for the owner's complete control of changing menu items and pricing! Their daylight readable monitor, along with the Hitch-Hiker phone app gives the customer control of their menus in the simplest way to change and update content at the push of a button anytime, anywhere.
Are You Ready?The landscape of the midways will be changing again as concession trailer buyers see the amazing benefit and potential in the all new Full Scale Digital Marquee option. This marquee will be so much more than what a traditional trailer top has been. This will feature an LED system that will be able to run through multiple content in a way that fair patrons will have to stop and watch “The Show”! Instead of one marquee a buyer will have many “marquees” and not just static graphics. The Hitch-Hiker team makes this a win/win by offering a content creation aspect so that the buyer is able to utilize their potential to “wow” the midway. Trailers that feature this option will now be an attraction that draws in the fair patron and advertisers alike.

If you are in the market for a food trailer, large or small, and are ready to work with professionals that are proven to be dedicated to the mobile food industry, and want a top-quality unit that will hold its value for many years to come, give Hitch-Hiker Mfg. a look today!
