When it comes to your food truck concept, here is the best piece of advice we can give you: Be unique.
While that might sound vague, being unique is what is going to make you stand out in the food truck industry. Therefore, create your own unique twist for each and every meal, even if your concept itself isn’t really that unique (such as a pizza truck or a hot dog stand).
The key is to make your food stand out, and to also not make it too crazy at the same time. Okay, we know what you are thinking: How are you supposed to achieve that goal? It’s tough — it really is. On one hand, you don’t want to make your food so basic that it can basically be found anywhere, and on the other hand, you want to make sure your food really stands out in the sense that it cannot be had anywhere else other than your food truck.
With that in mind, that is why you need to add your own unique twist on each and every meal, and the menu in general.
Now, we are about to unleash three food truck concepts that aspiring mobile kitchen owners should consider for their food truck business, and they can be found below!
3 Perfect Food Truck Concepts For Aspiring Mobile Kitchen Owners
An American Food Truck
All burgers … all day! Okay, so you can also add hot dogs, fries and things of that nature into the mix. There is a reason why there are so many burger joints lurking around, and it’s because people can’t get enough of them. If you really want to make things interesting, then you can make your American truck a vegan one, or at least offer some vegan meals.
A Mexican Food Truck
Street tacos are very, very popular in the food truck industry; however, if you want to succeed, then you need to come up with your own unique recipes (but that is, of course, the case no matter what concept you decide to go with). You can also add burritos, chimichangas, huevos rancheros and anything and everything relating to the Mexican food concept.
A Hawaiian Food Truck
Is it just us, or is there not enough Hawaiian food trucks? Nonetheless, chicken katsu, spam musubi and short ribs are delicious, and surely your food truck would be a success if you decided to go with the Hawaiian concept.
Of course, marketing, social media, being business savvy and things of that nature will come into play as well.
Now, while these are three perfect food truck concepts to go with, there are so many other concepts that are also succeeding in the food truck industry. There’s Thai trucks, coffee trucks, BBQ trucks, seafood trucks, dog trucks (as in actual food trucks for dogs) and really anything you could imagine when it comes to food. Some people also do a mixture of food concepts, and that is perfectly fine! The choice is yours.
Get creative, have fun and cook the food you love!
