Day-to-Day Operations: Why is updating your location on Facebook and Twitter so important? What apps can simplify your daily life as a food truck owner? What’s the best way to manage your employees?

Marketing: What are the best social media strategies for new food truck owners? How can Yelp help your business? Are there any other marketing avenues you should pursue?

Advancing Your Business: What do you need to do before you can start offering catering? What’s the best way to find good events for your food truck? Where should your business go next?
