Local chain Z-Burger will hit the streets in the first week of January with a new food truck. The burger-mobile will operate in DC and Montgomery County, offering a street-friendly version of its restaurant menu: beef and veggie burgers, hot dogs, and 14 varieties of milkshakes.

Co-owner Peter Tabibian has been diversifying the fast food joint’s reach, including numerous giveaways and the addition of the health-minded Z-Sandwich in Tenleytown. The first truck is meant to be part of a growing fleet that will expand in 2015, along with more brick-and-mortar locations of Z-Burger; six currently operate in the area.
