Engage With The Customers

Ask your customers how their day is going, give them ideas for the meal they ordered — well, if extra options are available, that is — and simply be an all-star in every sense of the word when it comes to engaging with the customers.

While the food itself has to be up to par all of the time, doing something as simple as engaging with the customers can really stick out to, well, the customers, and it can also make the food truck environment more enjoyable, which could attract more customers.
