Showing Love For The Food Truck Industry

Food Truck Industry

With the busy season right around the corner (for some food trucks, the busy months might have already started), it would not be a surprise to see more and more food trucks hitting the streets on a daily basis.

So, with that in mind, we wanted to show some love for the food truck industry, and we plan on showing this appreciation by highlighting FoodTruckr articles that have specifically focused on this love for mobile kitchens.

Below, foodies will find previews and links to articles that show, in one way or another, love and appreciation for the food truck industry/food trucks/this career path.

Why do we love the food truck industry? Find out in the articles below!

2.) They Provide A Lot Of Freedom And Creativity For Owners

A food truck owner calls all the shots, and this opens the door to freedom and creativity. After all, a food truck owner has to worry about managing, leading, marketing, anything relating to the food, etc.

If an owner wants to add a new item to the menu, then he/she can. If an owner prefers to work at nights, then he/she can. If an owner wants to try out a new strategy, then he/she can. If an owner wants to put in double-digit hours every day during the summer and take the winters off, then he/she can. If an owner wants to … well, you probably get the point by now — food truck owners can do whatever they want with their mobile kitchens, which means they can be as creative as they would like to be.

Food truck owners can travel to many different locations and serve the food they love to cook, and they can also serve whatever they want … whenever they want. This industry, believe it or not, is flooding with creativity, and a whole lot of happiness, freedom and people doing what they want to do for a living.

3 Reasons Why You Should Feel Accomplished If You Are A Food Truck Owner

Sneak Peek:

1. You Didn’t Let The Naysayers Persuade You

There are many different reasons why people decide to not follow their dreams, and one of those reasons is this: People are afraid of what the naysayers will think. You typically can’t win with said naysayers, which is why, spoiler alert, you should eliminate said naysayers from your life (as well as negative mindsets).

These people don’t walk in your shoes. They might pretend like they do by giving their take on everything, but you are the one who has to live with your decisions — not them. Even still, it’s tough to follow your dreams when you have people criticizing you every step of the way … but you didn’t let the naysayers win — you made a plan, took action and became a food truck owner.

Reasons Why We Love The Food Truck Industry

Sneak Peek:

Because Food Trucks Go Where The People Are

Instead of traveling far and wide to get to a restaurant, food trucks go where the people go, if you will. Okay, so food trucks technically don’t go door to door (although catering is a big thing in this industry), they go where the most people are. Hear us out.

Food truck owners tend to set up shop at a place that is flooding with foot traffic, a place that attracts a lot of people, a place that is big for tourism and you likely get the point. You can find food trucks at business districts, at events, at festivals, at bar scenes, downtown — everywhere. Heck, you can even find lunch trucks at weddings nowadays. In fact, food truck weddings are becoming more and more popular.

Here’s the thing, if you plan on going downtown on a Friday night (or any night), then there’s a good chance that you will find a food truck somewhere along the way. Given the fact that food truck food is flooding with deliciousness and food trucks tend to go where the people are, they are perfect for foodies. What’s not to love about that?

If Food Truck Owners Are Lacking In This Area, They Will Not Succeed

Sneak Peek:

Whether you are a food truck owner, entrepreneur or just a person trying to chase his/her dreams, there is one thing you cannot lack if you plan on bringing your success to the ultimate level.

That one thing: Passion.

Passion is what drives food truck owners. In fact, it’s what got you into the food truck industry to begin with. Without it, you wouldn’t want to conquer your dream of being the best chef in the business, and you surely wouldn’t have taken the risk that is buying a food truck/starting up your own business.

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

Sneak Peek:

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.
