1. Rent a Food Truck for Your Mobile Equipment Needs

If you’re a company or an entrepreneur that needs mobile infrastructure for your business or project, then you probably have a few questions.

Can I do short-term and/or long-term rentals?

Short-term rentals are usually for one-off events. For example, a production company looking to rent a food truck for a commercial shoot may pay for a daily or weekly rental.

Long-term rentals and leases are usually a month or longer, and are used by companies that want a mobile food solution or to test out a business idea. A long-term rental will get your business off the ground and start generating buzz without committing to purchasing your own truck. 

Recently we’ve noticed that school and school districts are considering food trucks to supplement their meal programs for students.

Where can I rent a food truck? 

There are several online resources you can use to source a food truck rental:

1. Roaming Hunger – Their Marketplace is a great place to start since it’s a free resource.

No matter where you’re located, you’ll get food truck options for your needs. Or they’ll point you in the right direction if there are alternative choices.

They help with both short and long-term rentals and also have programs in place that help support smaller businesses. And if you’re looking to buy or even build a food truck, Roaming Hunger has resources.

2. – This website has listings that include food trucks ready to lease.

3. Local food truck owners – You can try reaching out to local food truck owners to see who has equipment that you can rent. 

While you can expect to find a car rental place in nearly every city, food truck rental businesses can be hard to find. This is why most people turn to online databases, which can put you in touch with resources near you. 

How much does it cost to rent mobile food equipment?

Short term rentals can cost hundreds to thousands of dollars. Pricing will depend on whether you need to wrap the truck and what it’s going to be used for. The greater the risk to the owner, the higher the cost.

Long term rentals will range from just over $1,000 all the way to over $5,000 per month. Again, it depends on the type of equipment you’re needing, your location, and what the food truck will be used for.

Is it cheaper to rent vs. buy or build a food truck?

For short term use, it’s typically better to rent a truck since you won’t need it for long.

For long term use, you need to look at the financials and determine which option is cheaper. The monthly costs of renting should be compared to what you would pay if you bought your truck outright, including financing costs such as loans, etc.

2. Food Trucks for Branded Marketing Promotions 

In recent years, marketing activations with food trucks and other mobile infrastructure are becoming more popular, especially now that outdoor events are becoming the norm. 

Brands use food trucks for one day activations, pop-up shops in high traffic areas, and for national tours to target specific audiences and customers. 

If you’re looking to launch a promotion, we recommend contacting RMNG, a full-service Experiential Marketing Agency. They have over a decade of experience sourcing trucks for one day events and setting up longer term marketing tours. 

Their clients include all sorts of companies, including Apple, Budweiser, Beyond Meat, Doritos, and dozens (if not hundreds) more. Check out more of their recent projects here

Once you give them your event information they’ll find you local food trucks, trailers, and carts that are available to come feed your guests, along with a free quote from each caterer.
