Spring is already here, if you can believe that, food truck owners. This spring — and all summer long for that matter — don’t be afraid to spice up your menu.
First things first. Mobile kitchen owners can spice up their menus with one simple step: adding something new to the table. This can include something out there like lobster tacos, or something simple like tomato soup and grilled cheese. You’re the gourmet food truck chef. It’s up to you to make the big decisions like what to actually serve.
Another thing mobile food trucks should do: Follow the trends. What food trends are happening right now? Tackle those trends and then try to incorporate them into your menu. They are trends for a reason, and you might as well use said trends while they are still, well, trending.
Here’s another easy way for customized trucks to spice up their menus: Serve up a special that incorporates a National Food Holiday for any specific day. Believe it or not, there are a ton of these food holidays going on every single day. And, there are plenty of food lovers who would love to sink their teeth into them. The food truck industry has to catch on to little things like this.
If lunch truck owners want to really get fancy with the menu, and bring specials to a whole new level, then they can add two specials every day. Simply put, people like to try different things when it comes to their food, and adding the word “special” to it certainly doesn’t hurt.
Here’s another idea (and easy one to follow at that) for your food truck business: Follow the seasons. What do we mean by this, one might ask? Well, if it is cold outside, serve up foods that people associate with cold weather, and ones that will help keep them warm. Since the temperature is going to start heating up (beach season is just around the corner), serve up things that people tend to eat during these hotter months. For more information on this concept, we have you covered in the link below.
There are plenty of ways to spice up your menu, which is what mobile catering trucks are all about (the food, that is). As a result of this industry booming, more and more food trucks are going to be popping up. That means your mobile kitchen has to stay on its feet. On top of serving the delicious recipes that got you here in the first place, you have to adapt. One easy way for chefs to do that is by simply spicing up the menu.
