Rock The Last 3 Months Of 2018 With These Food Truck Tips

  • Set Up Your Catering Gigs For The Rest Of The Year (And Beyond)
  • Don’t Forget To Winterize Your Truck
  • Find Central Locations

3.) Set Up Your Catering Gigs For The Rest Of The Year (And Beyond)

The reasoning behind this is simple: As the temperatures start to drop, it’s going to be harder to attract people to your food truck. Your revenue could take a hit as a result. Of course, you will always have loyal customers who travel to your mobile kitchen, even in frigid temperatures. However, you can supplement your income (and know you have money coming in) when things get slow if you set up catering gigs ahead of time.

This is easier said than done, but if you have a good track record and a following, then setting up catering jobs might come easy for you.

Adding a catering service during the offseason can help you make more money and can lead to you reaching new customers who have never eaten at your truck before.

2.) Don’t Forget To Winterize Your Truck

While getting your truck ready for the winter might not sound glamorous, it’s something that needs to be done, whether you plan on staying open during the winter or not.

Routine maintenance will make the process that’s winterizing your food truck easier. You’ll also want to make sure you have good snow tires and windshield wiper blades (something that tends to go under the radar far too often with vehicles).

1.) Find Central Locations

What do we mean by this? Find locations that are flooding with people no matter what time of the year it might be, such as downtown hotspots, business districts, apartment buildings or outside of gyms. Being able to rely on a few (or even one) location where there are a lot of people will help ensure that money is coming in no matter what time of the year it might be.
