Food Truck Branding
FoodTruckr School Podcast Artwork

In this second episode of FoodTruckr School, we chat with Chris Adams from Rocketman Creative, a branding expert and strategist who helps food trucks new and old establish their identity and focus or re-focus their branding efforts for maximum impact.

It’s so much more than just designing a cool logo – there’s an entire culture that can be created based on how well your brand is established. Think about brands like Apple or Starbucks – powerful brands with cult-like followings that people are proud to support, and will often go out of their way to.

After listening to this episode, you’ll know exactly what it takes to create a brand that succeeds, and have a marketing education that will help you stand out from the crowd. And the best part – this podcast, as always, is free! 🙂

More Specifically, in this episode you’ll learn about:

  • The important elements that need to exist before even a logo or any designs.
  • 4 core elements of an outstanding, memorable logo.
  • The true definition of brand and the most important word that you need to know that relate to it.
  • Characteristics of food trucks with poor branding, so you don’t make these same mistakes.
  • The importance of the “tone” and “flair” that you have within your brand.
  • The exact step-by-step process Chris uses to help food truck owners shape their brand.
  • How to validate your food truck business idea before you spend money on a truck.
  • Positioning and developing your “unique offering” and personality as a food truck.
  • How to craft your menu to truly support your brand and message.
  • The secret of “easter eggs”.
  • Plus so much more…

    Thanks for a great interview, Pat. Great fun! Sorry about the 1/9 and 9/10 iceberg math. (I’ve always said I’m more of a “pictures” guy rather than a “numbers” guy…) Looking forward to more valuable content ahead on the site!

      Hi Marsha,

      I’m glad you’ve been enjoying the podcasts! I just tried to download the file by clicking the Smart Brand Flight Plan FoodTruckr Edition (Free Workbook Download!) link above, and it seems to be working just fine on my computer. If you’re not able to get that link to work, email me at [email protected] and I’ll help you get a copy of it!
