About a year ago (on Sept. 21, 2016, to be exact), Custom Concessions did an article on hot food items for fall, and in Flashback Friday fashion, we are about to go all the way back to that article.
The article was titled “Hot Food Items Food Truck Owners Need To Incorporate Into Their Fall Menus.”
While we weren’t trying to step on anyone’s toes then — and we certainly aren’t trying to do that now — it’s always a great idea to switch up the menu from time to time, especially when a new season is rearing its head, and especially when the pumpkin spice flavor is the king of the season (spoiler alert: it is for fall).
In a nutshell, we talked about some trendy foods/hot meals, if you will, that food truck owners should serve up during fall. Yes, the pumpkin spice flavor made the list … so did pot pie and “A Thanksgiving Celebration.” Before we give away all of the gems, though, we are just going to stop there.
Nonetheless, food truck owners would be wise to change up their menus during the fall months, even if it’s just subtle changes, or a meal or two. One of the easiest ways to attract more customers is by incorporating new items on the menu, and then marketing them like crazy, of course, especially via social media networks like Facebook.
Without further ado, we are about to drop a Flashback Friday preview of the article as well as the link so you can dive right in.
Check it out below, and good luck this fall, food truck owners!

“Food trucks are a great place to go on a Friday night (or any time of the week, that is). The food they provide for our taste buds are otherworldly and you also don’t have to go through the trouble that is sitting at a sit-down restaurant.
“However, if you are currently the head chef at your very own mobile catering truck or are browsing the market for food trucks for sale, make sure you keep these food options in mind — because every mobile kitchen truck needs them.”
“If you are thinking about entering the food truck industry, then there are about 1,000 different things you are going to have to figure out. While that might be exaggerated a bit, food truck owners have to make a ton of different decisions before they even get their trucks up and running.
“One of those decisions — and it is a very important one — is figuring out what you want your concept to be. Figuring out your concept and menu might not be the easiest decision to make, but once you have made up your mind, you need to stick with your concept (and love it).
“Branding and marketing aside, your concept and menu alone are going to attract customers. After all, people go to food trucks for the — wait for it — food. And if your concept is good enough, your lines will be flocking with customers in no time.”
