Monday Motivation For Food Truck Owners

Yet another week is among us.

While so many people dread Mondays, you shouldn’t be one of them. After all, you are a food truck owner, and you chose this life, this dream, this profession. Of course, that doesn’t make your life any easier, because easy is not the name of the game in the food truck industry.

The food truck industry is an amazing one, to say the least, and it’s a dream industry for so many aspiring chefs (and current ones).

Nonetheless, in the spirit of it being Monday, we decided to do a Monday Motivation article (note: we will be providing a preview to previous FoodTruckr articles as well as sharing the links so you can sink your teeth into every article). As a result, below you will find some great articles that will help you, FoodTruckrs, get motivated, no matter where you are in your food truck journey right now.

Good luck, and happy Monday!

5. Become A Food Truck Owner Because It’s Your Dream, Not Because It Sounds Good On Paper

“Many aspiring food truck owners already know what it takes to be a successful mobile kitchen owner, and they welcome the challenge. However, some people think they are just going to be cooking food, experimenting in the kitchen and talking to people all day. Being a food truck owner is so much more than that. Likewise, so many aspiring writers look at Hemingway and they think being a writer sounds awesome as a result. Spoiler alert: Writing is hard, especially when it comes to actually selling books and making a living off of your craft. You might have a lot of flexibility in your schedule, but the actual act of writing can drive a man insane.”

“If you live in a place that gets taken over by bad weather during the winter, then the offseason in the food truck industry can be a very unmotivating time. After all, there is nothing worse than you and your employees cooking up a storm in the kitchen (mostly prep stuff, because you cook your food fresh, right?) and then customers not showing up to eat this delicious food. Even worse is when you can’t even open up your food truck because winter is really taking over.”
