While you will likely be able to skip some steps this time around, make sure to take your time with your expansion ideas and also make sure your passion shines through.

2.) Don’t Lose Sight Of Your Current Food Truck

While you will likely be putting in a lot of time and effort when it comes to your expansion project, don’t lose sight of your current food truck.

The last thing you want is for your sales and quality to drop. Make sure to continue to enjoy the process and do a great job from one location to the next (don’t get complacent).

If you’re going to have a manager take over your first food truck, then that’s perfectly fine, but make sure this person is reliable and also shares the same vision as you.
