Food Truck Articles To Get July 2018 Started On The Right Track

10 Awesome Reasons To Become A Food Truck Owner


“Unlike a restaurant, a food truck is on wheels, which means you can take that bad boy anywhere (almost anywhere, because there are plenty of rules and regulations in this industry that must be followed). This alone could make the job that much better — because of the change in scenery. This also means it will be easier — and possible — to travel to catering gigs and food truck events.”

Cons Of Purchasing A Cheap Food Truck


“Here’s the deal: Not only are you sinking a lot of time, money and effort into this venture (that’s a huge understatement) but this is your business, and you should love everything about it. You should want to drive your truck, you should want to cook in your kitchen and you should want to spend a good amount of time at your lunch truck in general.”

5 Steps You Can Take Right Now To Begin Your Food Truck Journey


“This is an important step for many different reasons. First and foremost, location is everything in the food truck industry (you know what they say … location, location, location), and if you decide to go with a destination that isn’t known for its foot traffic, then you might struggle to attract customers. Not to mention, you can’t just park anywhere, and things like permits, regulations, laws and rules come into play.”

Questions You Will Likely Have When Trying To Become A Food Truck Owner


“Now, some people might be thinking they already know the ins and outs of business, and that’s awesome. However, everyone is not like that, and many people enter the food truck industry not knowing anything about business. We recommend you doing the research now. Learn how to run a business, how to manage employees, how to do inventory, how to find the best deals on your product, how to run social media accounts and anything and everything relating to a food truck business.”

7 Random Things All Prospective Food Truck Owners Need To Consider


“As is the case with any industry, you should be studying the ins and outs of the mobile kitchen industry before joining it. If you want to succeed, then you have to be knowledgeable when it comes to your profession/industry. Yes, that is the case for the mobile kitchen industry as well, even if you consider your food otherworldly.”

5 Things A Traditional Restaurant Could Do With A Food Truck


“An expansion, simply put, is expensive. Not only does a traditional restaurant owner have to come up with the funds to build a new store (and everything else that goes along with that), hire employees, buy inventory, possibly pay for marketing and advertising, etc., but said restaurant owner also has to continue paying for the restaurant that is already established.”

Why A Food Truck Is A Great Complement To A Brick-And-Mortar Location


“While many restaurants already offer catering, they might have to rent out vehicles to take the food and equipment to and from catering gigs. With a food truck, everything, of course, goes inside the food truck, and you can even cook your delicious meals as people order them at catering events, which brings a freshness aspect to the table on top of everything else.”

5 Issues You Will Face When Trying To Become A Food Truck Owner


“Most people enter the food truck industry with one thing on their minds: Food. Going along with that thinking, most aspiring food truck owners can do wonders in the kitchen … but they don’t know a whole lot about the food truck industry. That is fine, as long as aspiring mobile kitchen owners are open to learning the ins and outs of the food truck industry.”

5 Things You Need To Start A Food Truck


“Everyone thinks their ideas are unique and they were the first people to come across said ideas. However, did you actually do your research to see if this idea was truly unique? There are many unique twists and ideas in the mobile kitchen industry, so it’s important to do your homework on this subject. Of course, if you already have established sit-down restaurants, then you will likely go with the food concept of those restaurants because they already have proven results attached to them (and an audience/customers).”

Must-Have Qualities If You Want To Become A Food Truck Owner


“Risk-Taker: If you want to enter the food truck industry, no matter how big of a bank account you have, then you need to take a risk. There are no guarantees in the food truck industry, and since you are sinking quite a bit of money into a food truck, and everything else that goes along with it, you are, of course, taking a risk. Without this quality, you will never enter the food truck industry. Now, the more you know about the industry, cooking, business, customer service, social media and things of that nature, the more likely you are to succeed.”
