Top Tips From The General Manager Of A Successful Food Truck

Sneak Peek:

Just like any small business or startup, owning a food truck is a huge commitment. There’s no getting around it: you will need to compromise on sleep, personal time, social time and freedom.

“I wouldn’t jump into it unless you’re ready to live the lifestyle,” Walling advises. “It’s relentless… To be a great owner, you have to be fearless.”

And staying afloat isn’t enough. You need to keep your people skills sharp, dealing constantly with vendors, customers and employees. At Arlo’s, Walling manages payroll, scheduling, ordering and delivery, among many other things, leaving the owners with the mental energy to make the bigger decisions. It’s important to ask yourself who is going to do all the dirty work, the paperwork and the grunt work, because if you don’t want to do it, it’s best to hire general managers and shift managers who can.

Food Truck Advice From Real Mobile Kitchen Owners: Part 1

Sneak Peek:

If you are an aspiring food truck owner, then you have likely been browsing the web nonstop for advice when it comes to breaking into the food truck industry. You might have even ventured to a few food trucks and asked the owners how they broke into the industry, what their biggest struggles were, etc.

If you haven’t, then that is okay, but know this: If you want to become a food truck owner, and especially if you want to succeed in the mobile kitchen industry once you finally set up shop, then you have to study the competition and the industry itself. Believe it or not, that should be an ongoing process (yes, even after you become a lunch truck owner).

Why A Food Truck Is A No-Brainer For Catering An Event

Sneak Peek:

Everyone doesn’t have to eat at the same time. After all, your guests can order food whenever they would like. This is, of course, big when it comes to the freshness department, and it can also help you cut down on seats/everyone crowding around in a big line to get food.

Your event/venue can be anywhere. There are no restrictions when it comes to a food truck catering your event. After all, a food truck is on wheels, so it can go anywhere, and the kitchen is, of course, in the food truck.

3 Things Food Truck Owners Can’t Forget To Do

Sneak Peek:

Many food truck owners are afraid to take their foot off the gas pedal, and many food truck entrepreneurs have an entrepreneurial mindset, so hustle is always the name of the game. Those are both awesome mentalities, but as a food truck owner, you need to learn how to take breaks throughout the day and vacations every now and then.

You are in this for the long haul, so if you are work, work, work all of the time, you will burn out. No matter what industry we are talking about, everyone takes breaks on a daily basis, and food truck owners should — and need to — as well.

10 Ways Food Truck Owners Can Break Up Their Days

Preview: “There are many benefits to journaling, and one of the biggest ones is reflecting. This is a step that not enough people do, a step that we should incorporate into our routines more. You see, most people only reflect once per year — around New Year’s Eve, that is — and while some reflection is better than no reflection, if you make this a more routine practice, you will be able to catch mistakes and problems quicker. You might even be able to stop something bad from happening or turn your sales around well before the year is over.”
