Change Up The Menu/Incorporate Seasonal Food Items
While you should still get a good amount of business during the fall, because the temperatures aren’t that cold yet, it is still important to keep things interesting. During the summer, more people tend to go outside, or take their vacations, which is one of the reasons why business is typically booming in the summer for most lunch trucks.
To attract more people to your food truck, make your menu as interesting as possible. One way to do that is by incorporating seasonal food items. For instance, people tend to go crazy over pumpkin spice lattes in the fall. Use this to your advantage. No, this does not mean you have to serve pumpkin spice lattes, although it would certainly help. It is important to find the trends/seasonal food items during this time, and then fit them into your menu.
If you don’t take your food truck to a lot of events, then now is the time to start venturing down that path. There tends to be more events during the summer, but that doesn’t mean these things are obsolete during the fall, or even the winter.
Naturally, events have a lot of people, and these people get hungry. Luckily, your food truck business is there to save the day. Not only does this keep the money coming in, but it allows you to tap into a different market, in a sense, and gain new customers.
Get Your Catering Side Of The Business Going
Similar to events, catering allows you to serve more customers outside of your regulars, and outside of your usual location.
Catering also brings in more money to your business, and it helps with growth. With catering, you are getting your name out there, making your brand more recognizable and adding another source of income.
Fall might not be the busiest time of the year for certain food truck business owners, but there are still plenty of ways to thrive during this time.
