Are you thinking about entering the food truck industry, an industry that is filled with passion, people and great food? If so, then great! In terms of planning, and the first thing prospective food truck owners should be looking at, figuring out the price of a lunch truck is step No. 1. So, how much does a food truck actually cost? Like all things in life, it depends.
One of Prestige’s food trucks can cost a prospective owner $80,000, or it could be over $150,000. It really just depends on how advanced you want your truck to be.
Let’s look at some examples.
Right now, Prestige Food Trucks’ inventory consists of a truck as low as $80,000 and as high as $165,000. If you want to have your truck custom built, then it is likely going to run you anywhere in between those two figures.
Just to get an idea of some of the features of what a $165,000 food truck has, check out the bullet points below.

Realistically, the price of a food truck is up to the buyer. If you want a custom built truck that is going to do you wonders in the food truck industry for years, then it is going to cost quite a bit (side note: that’s the type of food trucks Prestige specializes in). However, if you are looking for the cheapest possible option, well, that is also an option, but Prestige might not be the best answer for you. Prestige is all about quality and a high-end product. Considering your food truck is going to be your office, in a sense, you should want the best. After all, you are going to be in your mobile food truck a lot.
Things like cooking equipment, generators and the actual design of the truck are all going to affect the cost.
If you are looking for a Prestige food truck, a high-end product, then you might want to save up a minimum of $80,000 to $100,000. Remember, paying a little more initially could end up saving you a ton in the long run. For example, if you buy a cheap truck, but parts (or perhaps the actual truck) keep breaking, then that is not only going to be a pretty penny to fix, but you are also going to lose revenue every single day your truck is out of service.
