Throwback Thursday

For this week’s version of Throwback Thursday, we decided to go way back in time to the most popular/viewed article ever posted on FoodTruckr.com.

To get to that article, we had to go all the way back to Oct. 1, 2013. The article is titled 50 Food Truck Owners Speak Out: “What I Wish I’d Known Before Starting My Food Truck.”

As you can imagine, it’s flooding with invaluable knowledge/advice/tips, and it comes from food truck owners.

So, if you’re trying to succeed in this industry (why wouldn’t you be?), then you’re going to want to sink your teeth into this article, and take all of the wonderful advice to heart.

Okay, without further ado, let’s go back in time, and in Throwback Thursday fashion.

50 Food Truck Owners Speak Out: “What I Wish I’d Known Before Starting My Food Truck”

“Do you remember the enthusiasm you felt upon that initial spark: “Hey! I should open a food truck!” What would you say to yourself now, these many moons later? Would you warn yourself off, or encourage yourself forward? We at FoodTruckr wanted to know, and we bet you do too. So we asked food truck owners from across the country one simple question: What’s the one thing you wish you’d known before you started your food truck? Oh boy, did you all deliver with the advice! From the cynical to the hilarious, you shared tremendously practical insights for any aspiring food truck owner (or those that may want some reminders). This is precisely the type of knowledge we here at FoodTruckr aspire to curate and share in our quest to offer the ultimate business resource for the entire food truck owner community. The advice starts with can’t miss business fundamentals.”

“Look back at your goals now, and preferably on a daily/weekly basis for the rest of the year. Too many people create goals, write them down, get super motivated for a few weeks … and then that comes to a screeching halt in no time. That’s because they take their eyes off of the prize — which is making their goals come true — and they stop looking at their actual goals.”

“Everyone wants more customers, and everyone wants to increase their sales, but so many people just say they want those things, and then they back that up by going through the motions/not taking action.
