A food truck that specializes in Vietnamese, French and vegetarian food in Keene, N.H. accepts bitcoin, according to Free Keene, a pro-decentralization and pro-bitcoin organization in New Hampshire, a very independence-minded state in the U.S. The food truck features a bitcoin sign and may be the first food truck in the U.S. to accept bitcoin.
Bon Vivant – Gourmet Street Food operated by entrepreneur Isabelle Rose offers Vietnamese, French and vegetarian fare and is open Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Rose began making Vietnamese food for the local farmers market in 2009. She was able to launch her food truck without borrowing money.
