FS036: The Hard Work of a Building a Dream – with Sharon of Magic Coffee Truck

Magic Coffee Truck

Today’s guest is in the midst of building her dream. Magic Coffee Truck is about to hit the streets of Atlanta, thanks to the hard work of owner Sharon Turner.

Many of my guests on the FoodTruckr School Podcast are already living the dream: Their trucks are up and running, and the hurdles of getting their business on the road are behind them.

Sharon, however, is right in the middle of those early struggles, and she’s gained insights every FoodTruckr should hear. She’ll share her tips on navigating strict codes and permits, reaching out to local food truck associations, and finding the right legal help.

If you’re an aspiring FoodTruckr like Sharon, listen up! Her advice will help you spend less time reinventing the wheel and more time turning your dream into reality.
