Food Truck Branding

FoodTruckr School Podcast Artwork

In this second episode of FoodTruckr School, we chat with Chris Adams from Rocketman Creative, a branding expert and strategist who helps food trucks new and old establish their identity and focus or re-focus their branding efforts for maximum impact.

It’s so much more than just designing a cool logo – there’s an entire culture that can be created based on how well your brand is established. Think about brands like Apple or Starbucks – powerful brands with cult-like followings that people are proud to support, and will often go out of their way to.

After listening to this episode, you’ll know exactly what it takes to create a brand that succeeds, and have a marketing education that will help you stand out from the crowd. And the best part – this podcast, as always, is free! 🙂

More Specifically, in this episode you’ll learn about:

  • The important elements that need to exist before even a logo or any designs.
  • 4 core elements of an outstanding, memorable logo.
  • The true definition of brand and the most important word that you need to know that relate to it.
  • Characteristics of food trucks with poor branding, so you don’t make these same mistakes.
  • The importance of the “tone” and “flair” that you have within your brand.
  • The exact step-by-step process Chris uses to help food truck owners shape their brand.
  • How to validate your food truck business idea before you spend money on a truck.
  • Positioning and developing your “unique offering” and personality as a food truck.
  • How to craft your menu to truly support your brand and message.
  • The secret of “easter eggs”.
  • Plus so much more…
