Food TruckToo Much Text, Not Enough Photos

People want to get a taste of their food before actually tasting it, so to speak. One way to achieve that feat is by providing your food truck customers with pictures of your food.

Like the old saying goes, “A picture is worth 1,000 words,” and that concept certainly comes into play in the food truck industry.

Yes, it is great to have variety at your business, but don’t go too crazy. This can lead to uncertainty from the customer, and it could also lead to your lines getting longer and longer during the busy hours.
