  • Treat This Venture As If You Were Doing It For The First Time
  • Don’t Lose Sight Of Your Current Food Truck
  • There Are Many Ways To Expand

3.) Treat This Venture As If You Were Doing It For The First Time

While you now have more experience when it comes to starting up a food truck, we encourage you to treat your expansion as if you were doing it for the first time. After all, you don’t want to rush through this process and you also want to make sure this new venture fits all of your wants and needs.

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. If you treat this venture as if you were doing it for the first time — and also learn from your mistakes from the first time — you should have a successful expansion.

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.
