5 Things Every Food Truck Owner Can’t Live Without – November 2015 Blog Post
Writers need paper and a pencil (or a computer), dog walkers need a dog and a leash, pilots need a plane and basketball players need a ball and a hoop.
What about food truck owners, though? A food truck would be a great start, along with all of the other utensils needed to operate a food trunk business.
Taking that a step further, here are five things every food truck owner can’t live without.
5. Out-Of-This World Recipes
Okay, so your food doesn’t have to be the most unique of all time, and it doesn’t have to be the best-tasting foods in the history of food.
Although there is more to running a food truck business than just cooking, food is your product and product is what makes your company money. Therefore, and it goes without saying, great recipes are a must. At the same time, don’t be afraid to be experimental with your recipes and a little exotic.
4. A Unique Brand
Don’t be the same as everyone else.
On top of having a unique brand, having an awesome looking food truck never hurts. After all, if your food truck stands out, why would people not keep coming back?
If you have amazing food, a unique brand and your food truck looks awesome, you are going to be set.
3. The Perfect Spot
Let’s just put it this way: If you set up camp in a terrible location — like a place that doesn’t attract people — it doesn’t matter how amazing your food is.
Do some research before picking the perfect spot. Jumping the gun on this step could be lethal.
2. A Solid Business Plan
Just like with any business, having a top-notch business plan for your food truck has to happen.
Rainy days are going to occur (figuratively and literally), but a solid business plan will make said rainy days (and any day) a whole lot easier.
Owning a food truck business is going to be tough, you are going to lose sleep and you are going to be constantly doing things for your business. Therefore, dedication is something a food truck owner can’t live without.
