You Finally Get To Be A Chef
If you are like most food truck owners, then you have always wanted to be a chef, call the shots in your own kitchen, create delicious menus and cook food for a living in general. As a food truck owner, all of those dreams will come true.
All you have to do is buy a food truck, create a concept and then get to work (okay, so being a food truck owner takes a lot more than that, but that is the gist of it).
You Get To Be Your Own Boss
Tired of getting yelled at by your boss? Are you tired of not being able to do things your way? Well, if you become a food truck owner, you will get to be your own boss.
Gone will be the days of you not being heard, because when you are your own boss — which food truck owners are — you get to call all of the shots, hire who you want to hire, come up with the strategies, etc.
Welcome to the food truck industry, a place where you get to be your own boss!
Talking To People Will Become A Big Part Of Your Job
Do you love talking to people? Awesome! As a mobile catering owner, talking to people will literally become a big part of your life. After all, you will be taking people’s orders on a day-to-day basis.
Spoiler alert: If you aren’t a fan of talking to people/taking people’s orders, then the food truck industry likely isn’t for you.
You Can Change Things Up With Food Truck Events
Tired of showing up at the same location every day for work? Well, in the food truck industry, you don’t have to! You can literally sign up for food truck events, which are all over the country. Not only are food truck events fun for everyone involved but you get to cook up a storm and show off your otherworldly recipes in the process.
In this industry, you can also hold catering gigs, which is yet another way to change up the work scenery/environment/location. Events and catering gigs also add another stream of income, which should be a major goal for any business owner.
Food Literally Becomes Your Life
While you have to be business savvy if you are going to make it in the food truck industry, one thing remains true for every owner — food literally becomes your life. Everything revolves around your product, which is, of course, food.

Speaking Of Food, You Get To Eat/Cook Whenever You Want
This is perhaps the best perk of owning a mobile kitchen — you get to eat/cook whenever you want! Instead of daydreaming and/or contemplating about what you are going to eat at lunch, you can cook — and eat — a delicious meal whenever you want.
Food is the name of the game in this industry, after all.
Your Business Is Mobile, So You Can Venture Anywhere
We kind of talked about this earlier with catering and events, but unlike most businesses, yours is going to be mobile, which means you can take your business wherever you want. Of course, regulations, rules and permits do come into play.
As long as you do your homework on all of the rules, you should be fine, and you can take your mobile business wherever your heart desires.
You No Longer Have To Work In An Office, And You Can Work Whenever You Want
If you were born to be a chef, then the thought of working in an office is likely, well, the worst thought ever.
If you own your own lunch truck, gone will be the days of working in an office, and only being able to do work in said office. On top of that, you get to decide when you want to work. However, it would be wise to come up with a schedule/hours of operation so your food truck customers know when they can venture to your truck.
You Literally Make People Happy Every Single Day
You can’t say this about every job, but in the food truck industry, you literally get to make people happy every single day thanks to your abilities in the kitchen. Sure, you will deal with angry customers from time to time, but for the most part, people will be in love with your food, and you will make your customers happy with every single bite.
How cool is that?

The Opportunity For Extreme Growth
The sky is the limit in the food truck industry. While you are going to have to work harder than you have ever worked before, there is no cap on how much money you can make, and your business could end up being a franchise. Heck, you could eventually add a sit-down restaurant (or two) into the mix.
While entering this fine industry is a risk, the opportunity for extreme growth is very much alive, and that alone should have future mobile kitchen owners excited.
