FoodTruckrs’ Top 10 Mobile Kitchen Articles From 2017

Sign up to receive the FoodTruckr Newsletter and we’ll throw in our free guide: 6 Free Social Media Tools to Get People Talking About Your Food Truck.

10.) Street Food Rules And Regulations Food Truckers Should Know About

Preview: “Food trucks seem to be on the rise all over the country as people go down the path of being self-employed and working remotely. In such circumstances, the idea of owning a self-run mobile food business seems like a good one. A mobile food business can take the form of a food truck but like any other restaurant, it can have its own culinary identity and social value.”

9.) Tips For A Successful Grand Opening At Your Food Truck Business

Preview: “Make your grand opening known — over and over again — on social media. Social media networks like Facebook are the perfect platforms to reach your target audience. So, first things first, you need a social media network (or two), and a great strategy to go along with it. In terms of your grand opening, food truck owners need to make sure they are promoting it on social media. Create the hype. Persuade people to come to this big event. Show off your truck and your delicious food.”

8.) Ways To Raise Money For A Food Truck Business

Preview: “If you do go down this road, a road that could easily get you $20,000 or more, you need to be very transparent with your investors (in this case your friends and family). How do you plan on paying them back, and making their investments worth it? With your food truck business, of course, but this is the part where you show off your all-star business plan and really break things down for them.”

7.) The Ins And Outs Of Getting Food Truck Financing

Preview: “If you want a spoonful of success in this industry, you have to come up with an epic business plan — and you have to be business savvy on top of that — and you also have to be a great chef. Those things are invaluable. However, let’s get back to the money/financing issue.”

Success

6.) The Truth About Overnight Success In The Food Truck Industry

Preview: “We are here to tell you the truth about overnight success in the food truck industry. First things first, we want to drop this gem, and everyone needs to take it to heart: Everyone is different, meaning everyone’s path to success is different. While some things might work well for some, these same things will not work for everyone, meaning there isn’t necessarily this easy formula people can follow to achieve success.”

5.) The First Step In Securing Food Truck Financing Is Trying

Preview: “A prospective owner might be saying that he/she has bad credit. Sure, that will certainly make getting a loan for a mobile catering truck an uphill battle, but that doesn’t mean you should eliminate the option altogether. It just means you should prepare.”

4.) Unusual Food Truck Concepts You May Not Have Thought Possible

Preview: “If you’re planning on opening a food truck with an unusual theme or menu, you’re probably feeling a little anxious about whether or not the locals will dig your concept as much as you do. But don’t despair! No matter how unconventional your idea may be, if these five totally weird food trucks found success, then indeed, you can, too.”

3.) How To Start A Mobile Street Food Business On A Small Budget

Preview: “Have enough saved up for not only running your business, but to sustain yourself financially. The food vending industry will only work as hard as you do. All those hours are going to eventually pay off, but in the beginning, you will need to have enough funds to deal with the fact that you may have a long period where you are not raking in any profit.”

2.) Menu Ideas For New Food Truck Owners

Preview: “Of course, one of the things that probably constantly runs through your head is your menu. Here’s the thing: People are going to love your food! You put a lot of time into this, and you surely have some unique recipes up your sleeve. However, in hopes of helping you with the food, we are about to drop five menu ideas for new mobile kitchen owners!”

1.) 7-Step Plan For How To Start A Mobile Food Truck Business

Preview: “The idea of starting a mobile food business attained its popularity among entrepreneurs, as it is cheaper than opening a restaurant. Why do people love food trucks? They create a special atmosphere and sell delicious food/drinks at affordable prices. Swarms of people who want to try something delicious on the go are your potential customers, as well as lovers of taking photos of unusual things.”
