You might have tried this tactic already, and maybe you haven’t. Let’s start this twofer off with the selling-product-in-bulk aspect.
We aren’t breaking new ground here. Plenty of restaurants sell their food in bulk, or make it accessible, if you will, outside of their business. While it might be hard to sell your food in stores, and you might also not want to take that drastic of a measure, you can still sell your food in bulk.
As an example (and one we have used in the past), if your food truck business specializes in, say, jam, you can sell your jam in jars to your customers on top of making food as customers order it. The key is moving more product, which will lead to an increase in revenue.
We have said it so many times before, but we really can’t hammer this point home enough: Your customer service has to be leaking with quality, from how you treat your customers to how your employees treat your customers.
No, you are not going to make every single customer happy, because customer disputes do happen, but the main point is this: If your customers are not happy, then they might not return, they might tell their friends about their, in this case, lousy experience, they might leave a bad review or all of the above. All of those things could damage your credibility at your mobile kitchen business, so do everything in your power to become an expert in the customer service department in 2018.

If you want to make it as a food truck owner, then you probably have to take a step back on your social life. This means going out on the weekends less. In general, you should be doing things to make your business better during your free time, whether that means updating menus, coming up with social media strategies, planning the employee schedule for the upcoming week, finding more catering gigs or whatever it might be.
While every business is different, and you might have less to do in the beginning depending on how much you delegate, every business owner should be pretty hands-on in the beginning. This will ensure that your vision is being created, and your food truck operations are running smoothly. Not to mention, you joined this industry because you wanted to be a cook, and that is a daily job when your truck is open.
