If you are thinking about entering the food truck business, there is a key question to keep in mind. Are you going to go with a pre-owned food truck or a custom built food truck? As long as you do your research, you should be fine either way.
However, if you are leaning toward a pre-owned food truck, there are some advantages to that.
First off, pre-owned mobile kitchens are cheaper — well, typically that is. Pre-owned mobile catering trucks can get pretty costly if you have to take out some of the equipment, move things around or add on more equipment. However, you are buying a truck that has been owned before, which means it should be cheaper.
Another reason to join team pre-owned: A lot of the work is already done for you. After all, deciding what all needs to go in your food truck can be a very tedious process, especially if you are new to the food truck industry and really don’t know what equipment you need.
There is no guarantee that a pre-owned kitchen truck has all of the equipment you need. That is why it is so important to be patient when it comes to browsing used food trucks. Like with anything else, it’s important not to rush into the food truck business by buying a truck that doesn’t fit your needs.
Assuming your pre-owned lunch truck does fit most of your needs (hopefully all of them), the process should be faster. That is huge because then you can start your business up sooner than planned.
Future food truck owners, just remember to do your research on your pre-owned trucks. The rest will be smooth sailing from there.
