Why Being A Food Truck Owner Should Be Looked At As A Dream Job

Dream Job

What is the No. 1 reason why you want to become a food truck owner?

Is it because your passion is cooking food, and you’ve always dreamed about taking it to the next level by cooking for a living? Perhaps you want to own your own business, and you see food trucks as reasonably priced and a great opportunity. Maybe you are looking for something new and you think it would be fun to be a food truck owner.

Whatever the case might be, we want to make this point perfectly clear: Being a food truck owner should be viewed as a dream job.

After all, as a food truck owner, you can run your own business and don’t answer to a boss. You can work whenever you want, plus you get to be a manager and leader (if you hire employees). The list could go on and on. These reasons alone make this a very exciting industry for so many different people. And then you add the chef aspect into the equation…

Once you do that, then this truly becomes a dream job for an overwhelming amount of people. Some people dream of running their own kitchens and being able to focus on their passion of cooking every day. Well, the food truck industry provides that opportunity.

Not only that, but the food truck industry tends to be a friendly. This is because of the simple fact that so many owners are building amazing communities at their food truck businesses.

Add in the fact that an owner gets to be as creative as he/she wants to be. It’s no wonder why food trucks are popping up all across America.

The really cool part? You can be as successful as you want to be in this industry. There is no cap on how much money you can make. As an example, plenty of food truck owners end up opening multiple food trucks. Some owners even add on a sit-down restaurant on top of the food trucks they already own and operate. Some owners also franchise their trucks. Needless to say, the possibilities are endless in this industry.

If you are willing to work hard in this industry, the sky is truly the limit. That is one of the many different reasons why being a food truck owner is so fulfilling. Not to mention, every day provides a new adventure.

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

Sneak peek from the article:

Acceptance From Everyone You Know

There are likely two different kinds of people in your life: (1) The ones who support you, and (2) the ones who don’t, which is why you are going to deal with the issue of acceptance from everyone you know when trying to break into this industry.

Needless to say, you are going to have plenty of naysayers — you know, people who don’t support your dreams, and tell you they can’t be done. This is quite the challenge because these naysayers are going to be people you love, people who you thought believed in you.

We are here to say this: Don’t let the naysayers take you down with them — always follow your heart and your dreams! This is your life. And you can do anything you want with it, such as becoming a chef in the food truck industry.

Cons Of Purchasing A Cheap Food Truck

Sneak peek from the article:

A cheap food truck might be unreliable, and if that is the case, then it is eventually going to break down. Not only is that going to cost you a ton of money to fix — well, depending on what breaks, and how frequently things go out of commission on your truck — but you will be losing money every single day your truck is getting fixed/not selling food.

If your truck breaks down more often than not, or if you miss a food truck event/catering gig as a result of something breaking down, then you could lose credibility. Not only could that lead to you not getting hired again by the person who hired you in the first place but it could hurt your chances of landing catering gigs in general.

7 Random Things All Prospective Food Truck Owners Need To Consider

Do I Need To Move To Run A Successful Food Truck Business?

You say you want to run a food truck business, and that’s great! However, if you don’t live in an area with a lot of foot traffic/tourism/a busy area, then you should probably think about moving.

Your return customers (which might only be friends and family in the beginning) are not going to eat at your lunch truck every day. Therefore, you need to be in an area in which a ton of people cross paths with your food truck business. If that is not the case/if you live extremely far from this type of area, then you might want to think about moving.
