If you’re looking for more advice when it comes to the food truck industry, then we suggest you reading the three articles below (previews and links included).
“If you really want to be a success in the food truck industry, then you should take the entrepreneurial approach, which is basically hustle, hustle, hustle. There is no time to get complacent in the food truck industry, because on top of running a business, you have to cook up a storm in the kitchen — and that’s really just the beginning.”
“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. We understand, though, because food truck owners literally work 10-plus hours a day, and it’s always go, go, go with them. Breaks and vacations are few and far between.”
