With a food truck business, career freedom never tasted so good!
Being a food truck business owner is hard work. Beyond preparing an amazing menu, you need to think about local zoning laws, health codes, and employee training. You need to invest in truck maintenance and preparations for when your truck breaks down. And you must be smart about your marketing plans and profit margins.
Many food trucks don’t make it because they ignore or underestimate these business demands. They fall victim to only caring about the meals and menu—the owners’ lack of business savvy and discipline ends up biting them, hard. When it comes down to it, the most mouth-watering fish taco or pulled pork sandwich will never be able to save a poorly run food truck business.
Don’t let your food truck dreams flame out like that. By now, you know better. You know that you can’t afford to cut corners on your business plan. You know that using social media to engage your fans isn’t optional. You know that the most successful food truck owners in the nation diversify their revenue models with catering gigs and community partnerships.
And if you didn’t know all that, you do now. Knowledge is power. We can help you use it.
At FoodTruckr, we believe that becoming a powerhouse food truck owner is one of the funnest (yes, funnest) careers imaginable! Developing business skills and instincts is indeed serious stuff, but it doesn’t have to be boring.
With the right learning program bursting with practical resources, you too can put smiles on your customers’ faces while simultaneously putting a healthy profit into your bank account. Now, that sounds like a perfect way to have your cake and eat it too!

Hello there! I’m Pat Flynn, founder of FoodTruckr. Like you, I’m an entrepreneur who knows just how challenging and rewarding it is to build your own business from scratch. It’s demanding work, but I love it. I do it for the fans. That’s why when I meet a food truck owner, I see myself.
I started my first business after I lost my job at the height of the great recession. Through lots of hard work and trial-and-error, my business is thriving. Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about building businesses that get attention, operate smoothly, and earn the loyalty of raving fans. How to Start a Food Truck: The Definitive Guide is my way of offering that experience to an amazing breed of entrepreneur that I endlessly admire—food truck owners like you.
My team and I have worked tirelessly on this program for the better part of a year. We’ve done the research, conducted the interviews, analyzed the trends, and—most enjoyably—dined at many food trucks. We merged keen entrepreneurial know-how with food truck best practices. It’s the most complete program you’ll find (we’ve looked). I’m so excited for you to try it!
Like all entrepreneurs, you have to take a fair number of risks in your life. So we thought we’d remove one from the equation by making our program risk-free.
