In this episode of FoodTruckr School we have a very educational chat with Jessica Capistrant, one of the co-founders of the Phoenixville Food Truck Festival in Pennsylvania.

Food Truck festivals are events that are not only a great way to sell a ton of food in a short period of time, but they’re also an amazing way to grow and introduce your business to new customers – customers that can become life long fans and evangelists for your truck.

In this episode you’ll learn about:

  • How to find out about food truck festivals in your area.
  • What you need to do to get involved.
  • Typical costs and requirements in order to participate.
  • Tips and strategies to make the most of your Food Truck festival experience.
  • Plus a lot more!
