When you're hungry for a plant-based bowl but your friends crave fried chicken and truffle mac and cheese, there's only one place to go. The Wynwood Yard, which houses more than a dozen semipermanent food trucks, offers Miami a diverse selection of bites.
But for customers, the Yard's popularity often brings surging wait times and difficulty fulfilling large orders from multiple trucks. As of December, guests can use a food-ordering app instead of standing in line.
"It was born out of necessity," Wynwood Yard founder and CEO Della Heiman says. "When it gets really crowded, you can order without the line."
Powered by the South Florida-based SpeedETab, the app, simply called the Wynwood Yard, lists menus from every food truck, such as World Famous House of Mac and Morgan's Pizza. Users can select items from numerous trucks and check out all at once. When an order is ready, a text alert is sent.
