Use them well, and use them wisely.

Food Truck Tips For Success

Social Media

Every single business needs to use social media. That is especially the case if your business is planning on taking over the food truck industry. The benefits of social media are endless.

Basically, if you aren’t using social media, then you are missing out on many opportunities, and customers.

Going back to the food aspect of things, daily specials are great for your repeat customers. Sure, they keep coming to your lunch truck because they love your food, but that doesn’t mean they don’t want to try something new.

Not to mention, absurd — yet delicious — daily specials can really get the attention of future customers.

Food Holidays

Food holidays are on the rise. After all, people don’t feel guilty when it comes to eating donuts on National Donut Day — because it’s National Donut Day.

If you need a reason to serve up some guilty pleasures, or just want to change it up, food holidays could be your ultimate weapon.
