10 Awesome Reasons To Become A Food Truck Owner

“You Will Finally Get To Be Your Own Boss

Why should you become a food truck owner? For starters, you will get to be your own boss, which means if you don’t feel like working, then, well, you don’t have to!

Okay, so you probably shouldn’t be taking off days left and right (especially if you are new to the industry) for a number of different reasons, but you do get to call all of the shots.

You Get To Be Around Food All Day — And Cook It

Everyone loves food. It’s just a fact of life. When you are a food truck owner, you get to be around food all day, and you also get to cook it, which is the ultimate win for aspiring chefs.

You Will Get Creative Reins Over … Well, Everything

When you own a food truck, you get to, once again, call all of the shots. This is a huge bonus when you are in the market for running your own kitchen. After all, you will get to experiment with meals, the menu and everything in the kitchen, really.

Not only are you the boss but you get creative reins! How many people can claim that?

You Get To Be A People Person

If you like to interact with people, then you are in store for quite the treat. As a food truck owner, you will get to be a people person. In fact, that is kind of in the job description since you will be counting on your customers to buy your product (the food).”

Why New Food Truck Owners Have To Study The Competition

“If you are a first-time food truck owner, then you likely don’t know a whole lot about this industry. Yes, you have probably done your homework and asked around, but doing that and actually being an owner is a completely different story. Your competition, on the other hand, should know exactly what they are doing if they have been in this industry for quite some time. Learn from them!

Studying your competition in the form of asking questions could lead to networking opportunities. Networking is huge in any industry.

Because the seasons change, and so will your sales. What do we mean by this? Well, there is an offseason in the food truck industry and then there is the busy season, and they are completely different beasts. Sure, you might have no problem attracting customers in the summer (aka the busy season), but what happens when the days get shorter, the temperatures get colder and snow starts lurking around? How do you make money in the winter (aka the offseason)? Spoiler: Your competition has likely battled many winters, so learning how they survived them would be a great start.

In any industry, it is rather wise to study people who are already succeeding at what you want to do. This helps you get ahead of people who are at the same level as you. Not to mention, there is always, always, always something to learn from a person who has already gone through what you are currently going through.”
