That’s right, FoodTruckrs! Coming up next, we’re proud to announce our brand new blog series: “How to Run a Food Truck.”

All year long, you’ve put so much hard work into starting your very own food truck business. You’ve achieved so much, but more challenges lie ahead. Now that your truck is officially out on the streets, we want to help you prepare to face anything that may come your way.

Let’s take a look at just a few of the topics coming up:

Facing Challenges: How can you keep your business running during a long, cold winter? What truck maintenance tips do you need to know? What should you do if you simply aren’t getting enough customers?

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?
