Food lovers are all about their national food holidays, and it is up to the food industry to, of course, provide the food. Luckily for everyone involved, May is a big month for national food holidays.
Whether you are looking for food trucks for sale or have owned a mobile kitchen for years, these May food holidays will likely be of interest.
May 5: National Enchilada Day
Cinco de Mayo and National Enchilada Day packed into one? Sign us up for that! If you run a taco stand or something similar, this is going to be a big day for your food truck business. If you don’t serve up Mexican food, though, that doesn’t mean your lunch truck can’t join in on the festivities.
May 10: National Shrimp Day
Shrimp pasta, shrimp scampi, shrimp cocktail, shrimp anything — this day is all about the shrimp. Surely, there will be plenty of seafood-like mobile catering trucks out there that will be celebrating this grand day.
May 11: National Eat What You Want Day
National Eat What You Want Day. Sounds like a pretty good marketing strategy for food trucks far and wide.
May 13: National Apple Pie Day
If your mobile food truck can whip up a homemade apple pie for National Apple Pie Day, then there is absolutely no reason why it shouldn’t. Add some ice cream to the mix and then there will really be a (food) party.
It would be so easy for kitchen trucks to celebrate this special day. After all, chocolate chip pancakes, cookies and ice cream exist. Moral of the story, every mobile kitchen trailer in the food truck industry should be going all out with a mouthwatering dessert for this day.
May 16: National Barbecue Day
Gourmet food truck owners, you can really go crazy on National Barbecue Day. Whether you like to keep it simple at your BBQs with hamburgers and hot dogs or make some dripping-with-barbecue-sauce ribs, the choice is yours.
If you are one of the lucky ones who are taking the journey that is browsing custom food trucks for sale, then make sure to celebrate these holidays (and many others) once your food truck business is up and running. The same thing goes for you, current mobile kitchen owners.
