3 Golden Reasons To Become A Food Truck Owner
Written on Aug. 30, 2017
We love the food truck industry.
We love everything about it. We love the uniqueness and creativity that goes into each and every food truck concept (and meal), we love the communities that food trucks tend to create, we love seeing people follow their dreams (and make all of those dreams come true), we love great meals, awesome food trucks and the list could go on and on.
We love this industry, which is why we encourage chefs to join the mobile kitchen industry.
While there are a million different reasons to join this fine industry (sure, that might be exaggerated a bit, but there are still so many reasons to become a food truck owner), we are about to drop three golden reasons to become a mobile kitchen owner.
Check them out below!
3 Golden Reasons To Become A Food Truck Owner
- You Want To Cook Food For A Living
- You Want To Own Your Own Business
- You Want To Be In Control Of How Much Money You Make
You Want To Cook Food For A Living
This is probably the No. 1 reason why you should become a food truck owner. After all, your passion is likely cooking food (and of course making people happy with said food), and you have every right to do it for a living if that is the path you desire.
As a food truck owner, and especially when you are first starting off, you are going to be cooking constantly, which should be music to your ears. As a food truck owner, you get to create the menus, recipes, specials and everything relating to food, really, because you are the one who calls all of the shots. You run the kitchen as a food truck owner, and of course, you get to cook food every single day, which is a dream come true for so many different people.
So, if cooking amazing food every single day/crushing it in the kitchen sounds like a dream come true, then the food truck industry is perfect for you.

You Want To Own Your Own Business
There are many different mindsets/people that enter this industry. Some people want to be a food truck owner because, like we stated above, they love to cook. Some people join because of the opportunity. Some people join because they want to own their own business (calling all entrepreneurs!).
Nonetheless, if you become a food truck owner, then you will, no matter what your desires might be, become a business owner.
That, in a nutshell, means you get to make all of the big decisions, and you don’t have to answer to anyone. You are your own boss, and that is reason enough to become a food truck owner for so many different people, and we don’t blame them.
Owning your own business is a dream come true, and when you add that on top of the fact that you get to cook food for a living, it’s a no-brainer why so many people are turning in their dead-end jobs for a prosperous food truck career.
You Want To Be In Control Of How Much Money You Make
Now, this reason might not be the main reason why chefs join this industry, but it certainly doesn’t hurt. In fact, it is quite the cherry on top.
If you have ever worked for someone before, then you probably weren’t in control of how much money you made. Let us explain.
If you work on salary, then you are literally capped out, and you have to work as much as your employer tells you to (of course, raises and bonuses do exist, but those are things you aren’t 100 percent in control of). At other jobs, you can only work a certain amount of hours, because your employer doesn’t want you to get overtime, or is only allowed to offer so many extra hours.
The biggest thing here: If you aren’t a business owner, and if you work for an employer, then you aren’t in control of how much money you make (sure, you can negotiate, but you literally can decide how much you make as a business owner). The opposite rings true if you become a food truck business owner. Heck, the sky is literally the limit when it comes to how much money you stand to make in the mobile kitchen industry, and how cool is that?
Your passion is cooking food, and you want your work to become your passion above anything else, but it probably doesn’t hurt that you also control how much money you make.
If everything above sounds like a dream come true, and if you are wanting to join this industry in the future, whether near or far, then make sure to check out the article below, as it is flooding with advice that will help you during the food truck buying search.
How To Take Your Food Truck Buying Search To The Next Level
“Finding the right food truck that fits your needs is not easy. Heck, simply finding the right car to take you from point A to point B can be quite the journey. Finding the right food truck is that much tougher. Not only is a food truck more of an investment than a car — well, typically, that is — but there is more you have to look into. After all, you have to make sure you purchase a food truck that will house all of your equipment.”
