Visit the ATK food truck parked in front of our offices at the Innovation and Design Building!

When parked outside our Boston test kitchen (see schedule below), this vintage food truck sells one lunch special (an ATK recipe, of course) as well as branded merchandise (shirts, hats, and more), books, and magazines. The truck is equipped with iPads so you can rate the recipe (of course) and tell us what you think. Occasionally, the food truck also hosts special events like book signings or tasting demos. Come visit the truck! It’s a great opportunity to meet staff members and take Instagram-worthy photos! Share your posts at #atkonwheels.

About the Truck

The 1972 Citroen H van was purchased from a vintage food truck dealer in London, where it was completely restored. They then shipped it in a container to Creative Mobile Systems in Connecticut, where it was outfitted for kitchen use. After that, it took a leisurely four-hour drive at 40 miles an hour to America's Test Kitchen's headquarters in Boston. (Our drivers wore motorcycle helmets since there are no seat belts!) We then hired a local sign company to do that beautiful hand lettering.
