Take That Social Media Game Up A Notch Or Two

Just to kick things up a notch or two, you can also start doing giveaways and/or a countdown. Now is the time to engage with your customers in hopes of luring them in once you open up shop once again. Side note: Whether you stay open during the offseason or not, it’s still important to create some excitement for spring, and to get your customers excited about your amazing food.

Start Prepping Those MenusSpring

Maybe you plan on going with the same menu(s) that you used last year. Perhaps you want to start from scratch and create a new menu altogether.

Whether the case, now is the time to prepare that bad boy. Just remember, your menu needs to be delicious and informative at the same time. In other words, you need to describe your products (your food) in a descriptive/informative manner so a ton of questions don’t remain, but you also need to make each menu item sound like the best food of all time. It’s an art, really.

If you want to get creative by trying some new menu items or put your own twist on a tending food item, then great — prepare now!

Check Last Year’s Numbers And Trends

What worked last year at your mobile kitchen? What didn’t work? Were there specific food items that trended at your food truck or in the food world in general? Nonetheless, check last year’s numbers and trends now. After all, the more research you do now, the more prepared you will be once spring is here, and the easier your life will be.

SpringThe point here is to do a little research in areas where research can be done. Therefore, check your inventory numbers from the prior year and see what you bought an extreme amount of (look for those outliers), and look for the opposite. While your recipes are likely amazing and don’t need any tweaks, your menu might need some minor adjustments.

If you plan on hitting the ground running once spring is finally here/once the weather is nice on a daily basis once again, then it’s important to start planning now, food truck entrepreneurs.

Looking to start your own food truck? Prestige Food Trucks can do wonders for you in that department.
