FS034: How to Make a Huge Impact with a Small Footprint – with Phil of Metrofiets

Metrofiets

Does the thought of buying and maintaining a traditional food truck seem daunting, expensive, or simply not your style? You might be interested in this radical food trucking alternative: cargo bikes.

My guest today is Phillip Ross, owner of Metrofiets, a Portland-based company that creates cargo bikes. When food vendors first approached him about creating custom bikes for their business, he was skeptical—would it really work?

As it turns out, serving food from a cargo bike is not only possible, but a successful and totally unique way to make a huge impact with a small footprint. Phil’s here to share how food vendors have used their cargo bikes to streamline their business, bypass expensive permits, and stand out from the crowd.

Let’s get to it!
