Customers

Every food truck owner has different managing techniques and handles customers in different ways.

Therefore, we aren’t saying every single food truck owner should deal with angry customers in the same manner, not to mention some situations need to be handled differently than others.

However, here are three strategies mobile kitchen owners can incorporate when dealing with angry customers — use these strategies whenever and however you see fit.

3 Ways Food Truck Owners Can Deal With Angry Customers

Sign up to receive the FoodTruckr Newsletter and we’ll throw in our free guide: 6 Free Social Media Tools to Get People Talking About Your Food Truck.

3.) Realize There Will Always Be Rude People & It’s Not Typically Personal

Unfortunately, there will always be rude customers — there’s not much you can do about it.

Sure, you can teach your employees how to properly take people’s orders and make sure the food meets your standards (and reduce mistakes), but some people, simply put, are rude or easily triggered. Not to mention, everyone has a bad day from time to time and some people take those bad days out on others.

Just know that, no matter what the rude customer says, it’s not typically personal. This person is mad at someone else (or, once again, is easily triggered) and is looking for someone to take his or her frustrations out on.

Are you currently doing any kind of email marketing or social media marketing? If so, then you should also be doing Facebook Messenger Marketing! Click here to find out more.

2.) Listen To The Customer & Offer A Solution

It’s hard to listen to a rude person who’s not being reasonable or is yelling. However, you have everything to lose — like customers — while the rude person can just leave a bad review and never eat at your truck again.

That’s why it’s so important to listen to the customer in question and try to offer a solution. Not only can this lead to the situation not escalating, but it can also lead to the customer not leaving a bad review, the problem being solved, and customer satisfaction.

A solution doesn’t always have to be a free meal (although it can be if that’s your strategy) — it can also be calming down the customer, seeing where he or she is coming from so you can solve the problem and ensure it never happens again, and giving the customer an explanation.

Looking to take your food truck business to the next level? If so, then The Food Truck Growth Kit has your name written all over it!

1.) Move On & Don’t Dwell

This is way easier said than done, especially if a customer says it is personal, tells you he or she doesn’t like your food, yells, doesn’t listen to reason, etc.

However, you can’t let one bad experience lead to another. If you dwell on the rude customer, then you will lose focus to something that happened in the past and is over. You want to make sure the problem doesn’t happen again and also correct the mistake, but once it’s over, you’ve talked to your employees (if they were involved), and a new strategy is in place, you have to move on.

Don’t let one person ruin your day, the mood and vibe at your truck, or possibly future meals because you and your team can’t stop focusing on the rude customer.

Once again, this is easier said than done, but do your best to move on and don’t dwell on a resolved situation.

Videos

As you’ve likely noticed on your social media networks, videos are powerful.

They’re interesting, informative, and so much more.

With that in mind, we pose this question: How do you structure your videos?

Do you do recipe videos in which you show people how you make your food? Perhaps you do a montage and show pictures of your food, your truck, customers, etc. You might not even post video content on your website or social media networks.

If you do or if you’re interested in this form of content, then we have a treat for you today.

Sign up to receive the FoodTruckr Newsletter and we’ll throw in our free guide: 6 Free Social Media Tools to Get People Talking About Your Food Truck.

How Food Truck Owners Can Structure Their Videos

FoodTruckr partner Ian Smith recently published an article on his website, Evolve Media, that explains how to structure your scripts for Facebook and YouTube videos.

Want to learn how to build a subscriber list for your food truck business? One of our managing partners here at FoodTruckr has put together an AMAZING FREE GUIDE that will teach you everything you need to know about getting started with Messenger Marketing! Click here to get your free guide.

Without giving too much away, the article, titled How To Structure Your YouTube or Facebook Video Ad Script, dishes out these steps when creating your script: Pattern interrupt, hook, ask for engagement, body content, incorporating a call to action, and properly ending the video.

While the main purpose of your videos might be to show off your food and give your truck some exposure, it’s important to persuade your customers and followers to visit your mobile kitchen, and a powerful video can help to achieve that goal.

To see a step-by-step guide on how to structure your videos, we encourage you to read Smith’s article here. You can also watch the video version by following this link.

Food Truck Owner

There are many things to value as a food truck owner.

After all, you’re cooking food for a living. You created a menu that’s yours. You get to make people happy with your food. You work for yourself. You’re in a thriving and lively industry. And, of course, you own your own food truck business.

What Do You Most Value As A Food Truck Owner?

Sign up to receive the FoodTruckr Newsletter and we’ll throw in our free guide: 6 Free Social Media Tools to Get People Talking About Your Food Truck.

If you could pick one thing, what would it be?

Why do we ask this question? Well, it’s because this is the thing you should keep in mind when things aren’t going according to plan. When you don’t necessarily rock a catering gig. When a location gets rained out or bad weather affects your business in some way. When you’re dealing with an angry customer or employee. When you’re burned out and don’t think you can work another double-digit day.

Are you currently doing any kind of email marketing or social media marketing? If so, then you should also be doing Facebook Messenger Marketing! Click here to find out more.

Practicing mindfulness and being grateful for what you have can, of course, help you appreciate what you have and where your food truck journey has taken you. It can also lead to a bad day not turning into a bad week.

Problems will always arise, but how we handle these problems is what’s important.

As an example, if a golfer hits a bad shot and can’t stop focusing on that bad shot after the fact, then he or she will follow it up with another bad shot … and then another … and perhaps another.

We aren’t saying you should shrug off your problems, but you can’t bask in failure, no matter how big or small. You have to bounce back as quickly as possible so you can counter failure and not let it compound.

Looking to take your food truck business to the next level? If so, then The Food Truck Growth Kit has your name written all over it!

Being grateful for what you have and looking at how far you’ve come can help you appreciate your food truck business more.

So, what do you value most as a food truck owner?

Let that be your inspiration when times get tough or when you simply need a burst of motivation and energy.

Knowledge

All industries, businesses, and markets change. That’s why food truck owners have to think of new ways to learn and expand their knowledge.

After all, if something changes, such as the way an industry operates (or rules and regulations), then you have to adapt if you plan on sustaining and growing your success.

Luckily for food truck and business owners, there are plenty of ways to expand your knowledge.

Sign up to receive the FoodTruckr Newsletter and we’ll throw in our free guide: 6 Free Social Media Tools to Get People Talking About Your Food Truck.

Expanding Your Knowledge As A Food Truck Owner

For example, you can enroll in an online program and learn about running a business.

You can take courses on becoming a better marketer and remote worker (we encourage you to check out The Free Boss Lifestyle Course, which was created by Ian Smith, who’s a partner of FoodTruckr).

You can read business and entrepreneurial books.

You can read an unlimited amount of articles online… such as this one.

You can ask other food truck owners in your area how they get through the busy and slow seasons.

Are you currently doing any kind of email marketing or social media marketing? If so, then you should also be doing Facebook Messenger Marketing! Click here to find out more.

Needless to say, there are many different ways food truck owners can expand their knowledge. It’s important to make learning a never-ending process as things don’t stay the same forever and certain trends and new strategies can have a major effect on an industry.

Continuous learning can prepare you for what’s ahead as well as keep you relevant. It can help you change your perspective. It can teach you new strategies and tactics that will benefit your food truck business.

While we aren’t saying you should go with the flow and change your business every time a new trend or change appears, it’s important to know how to handle these trends and changes and to also implement new strategies when old ones are no longer working.

Looking to take your food truck business to the next level? If so, then The Food Truck Growth Kit has your name written all over it!

The food truck industry is very competitive and you have to constantly think of new ways to stand out and improve your business.

How will you expand your knowledge?

Gratitude

Living in the moment and being grateful for what you have is a trending topic nowadays and that’s for good reason.

After all, if you can’t be grateful for what you have now, then it’s going to be tough to be grateful for what you will have in the future.

In this case, you have a food truck business and you’re working at, more likely than not, your dream job. There’s so much to be grateful for … and below you will find out how food truck owners can practice gratitude.

How Food Truck Owners Can Practice Gratitude

Sign up to receive the FoodTruckr Newsletter and we’ll throw in our free guide: 6 Free Social Media Tools to Get People Talking About Your Food Truck.

Look At Your Challenges In A Different Light

When things aren’t going the way we want them to, it’s easy to feel down and bad for ourselves. However, it can always be worse and it’s important to celebrate where you are now and the path you traveled to get here.

It’s important to look at your challenges as meaningful tasks and obstacles you can conquer.

Sure, you might have a catering gig coming up and a million other things on your plate, but it’s important to view these challenges as blessings. You should be grateful for having a catering gig and a lot of work ahead as these are the things that are going to make you money, not to mention cooking food for a living is your passion.

A year ago, you might have wished for nothing more than to be a food truck owner. Well, now you are one and that should be cherished and celebrated.

Are you currently doing any kind of email marketing or social media marketing? If so, then you should also be doing Facebook Messenger Marketing! Click here to find out more.

Practice Reflection And Mindfulness

Reflection can help with gratitude because it allows you to sit back and reflect on what you have, where you’ve been and how far along you’ve come. During this process, you can reflect on the smart decisions you made and how you handled certain problems at your food truck.

In terms of mindfulness, it’s important to cherish the moment because it can actually lead to your best work and being present. When you’re focused on the task at hand, or simply giving each customer the time and day he or she deserves, you’re likely cooking at a high level and enhancing your customer service.

Looking to take your food truck business to the next level? If so, then The Food Truck Growth Kit has your name written all over it!

While reflection focuses on the past, it’s essential to review your successes so you can duplicate them … and your failures so you don’t make the same mistakes again.

Mindfulness isn’t the opposite of that, although it’s focusing on the present — it’s giving all of your attention to the present moment.

4.) Building An Email Leads List Can Be Beneficial For Your Food Truck Sales

Preview: “Turning it over to Ian Smith, who is a partner of FoodTruckr and owner of Evolve Media, “One effective way to build that trust is to provide them with valuable content, which if done well, results in a long email list of leads, and ultimately customers. If you do the legwork it will lead to more sales” (via an article Smith published on Evolve Media).”

3.) Food Truck Marketing Tip: Use Facebook Messenger & ManyChat

Preview: “That strategy alone can be essential for food truck owners who routinely make visits to apartments, gyms, business districts, etc. After all, this allows the managers and owners of these companies to easily reach you to set up times for your food truck business to serve food.”

2.) How ManyChat Can Help Food Truck Owners

Preview: “If one of your New Year’s resolutions/goals is to increase your sales and gain customers, then you have to make changes. You can’t just hope that next year will be better and more people will come to your truck. Plus, your food probably isn’t the problem. Your product (aka your food) is likely exactly where it needs to be. Unfortunately, there might not be enough people who know about your truck and the competition is also fierce in the food truck industry.”

1.) Benefits Of Messenger Marketing For Your Food Truck Business

Preview: “Not only is Facebook Messenger easy to use but you and your customers are already on it — well, at least the customers and fans who are already following your food truck on Facebook. Therefore, you can easily connect with them since you’re on the same platform.”

Networking gets thrown around a lot in the business world.

How does it relate to food truck owners, though?

Well, networking can come in many forms, from conferences to food truck events to catering gigs to daily locations.

For the purposes of this article, we’re turning to FoodTruckr partner Ian Smith.

Sign up to receive the FoodTruckr Newsletter and we’ll throw in our free guide: 6 Free Social Media Tools to Get People Talking About Your Food Truck.

How Food Truck Owners Can Increase Sales With Networking

Smith published an article on his website (Evolve Media) about networking.

The article, titled “4 Ways To Increase Cash Flow By Increasing People Flow,” is tailored to business owners and entrepreneurs and we believe food truck owners can get a lot of value from it as well.

Want to learn how to build a subscriber list for your food truck business? One of our managing partners here at FoodTruckr has put together an AMAZING FREE GUIDE that will teach you everything you need to know about getting started with Messenger Marketing! Click here to get your free guide.

Without giving too much away, the four ways to increase cash flow by increasing people flow are…

  • Networking on social media
  • Creating content
  • Inviting people to book a call with you
  • Attending events and conferences

While these methods are for companies that thrive online via digital marketing, food truck owners can engage with their followers (aka their customers) on social media, they can create content on platforms like Facebook and Instagram (such as pictures and videos of their food), they can reach out to larger companies and networking events that might need a catering business, and they can, of course, learn valuable business lessons and network with like-minded people at events and conferences.

To see everything the Evolve Media article has to offer, you can read the entire piece here. You can also watch the video version here.

We also encourage FoodTruckrs to visit Evolve Media to learn more about digital marketing and subscribe to Smith’s YouTube page by following this link and clicking the subscribe button.
