FS028: How to Forge a Food Truck Empire with Jim from Bacon Bacon SF

This week’s guest has taken San Francisco by storm with his ingenious food truck, Bacon Bacon. That’s right—one food truck, twice the bacon!

Jim Angelus started out in the restaurant world, but when he and his wife started a family, Jim started looking for a way to escape the difficult hours so common in the restaurant industry. Bacon Bacon was his solution. He’s watched business blow up (on one occasion, literally!) to include three food trucks, a café, and a mobile trailer.

I asked Jim what he’d do differently if he could go back in time and build Bacon Bacon all over again, and his answers pack some great advice. Jim talks about sticking to a crystal-clear vision, building the perfect menu, where to turn for advice, and letting go of the desire to be everything to everybody.

Jim’s words of wisdom are a must-listen for any aspiring food trucker, no matter where you are in your journey. Tune in to hear Jim’s amazing, bacon-filled story, and enjoy!
