With another year almost in the books, we decided to give aspiring (and current) food truck owners a treat in the form of information galore.
One might be wondering how he/she is going to receive said information galore.
Here’s the answer to that question: Below, we are going to be providing every article from December 2016. On top of providing a link, we will also be unleashing a preview.
Nonetheless, we hope everyone can finish 2017 on a strong note, and start 2018 with some serious momentum on top of that.
Everything Published At Prestige Food Trucks From December 2016
Are you in the market for a food business? If so, then you might want to steer clear of a sit-down restaurant and dive right into the food truck industry.
Sure, a sit-down restaurant can provide you with everything you need when it comes to making your dreams come true (such as running a kitchen, making all-star menus and making people happy with your homemade dishes), but so can a food truck. There are many different reasons why you should purchase a food truck over a sit-down restaurant, and we will be providing you with the three main reasons.
Of course, no matter which path you decide to take, you will be taking a risk. Both business ventures are going to cost you a lot of money in the short-term and long-term. However, if you give your business — in this case, a mobile kitchen — everything you got, then you will achieve a massive amount of success, and a ton of money could follow. Not to mention, the reward will be well worth the risk.”
There are so many decisions you have to make when it comes to starting up a food truck business. Not only do you have to worry about the meals you will cook and the menus you will have to make, but you will also have to create business plans and eventually be a manager to multiple employees — and that is just the beginning.
Future food truck owners also have to think about where they are going to set up shop. Heck, some people might move because of that factor alone. The location factor is a big one.
This industry might be thriving and there might be plenty of hungry mouths to feed, but this industry is also very tough to succeed in if you aren’t business savvy. Not to mention, you have to always be on your A game when it comes to motivation since you will be putting in 10-plus hours six to seven days a week.”
With 2016 almost in the books, people from us to you are likely starting to create their New Year’s resolutions and goals for 2017. This is no different for folks who own food trucks.
In fact, food truck owners are some of the most motivated people out there. After all, successful mobile kitchen owners are constantly at the office putting in the long hours, if you will. Not to mention, they are entrepreneurs and business owners in every sense of the word.
You see, mobile kitchen owners are taking a major risk when it comes to entering this industry since they are typically the ones who are using their money for the mobile kitchen and all of the equipment/supplies, and they are, of course, running a business on top of that.
As you likely already know, entrepreneurs and business owners tend to be very motivated people, and lunch truck owners fit the bill as well. They are dream-chasers, and they will stop at nothing to make their goals and dreams come true.”
How are those New Year’s Resolutions and goals looking for 2016? Did you achieve everything you wanted to achieve? Did you become the person you wanted to become, the person you were meant to be?
If you slipped up in 2016 and fell short on some of your goals, don’t sweat it. Now is not the time to get unmotivated. The exact opposite is actually the case. Therefore, look at the year you just had, do some reflecting, see what you can do better and what you should continue to do, and then get ready for a big 2017.
After all, 2017 could finally be the year that you enter the food truck industry. If you already own and operate a mobile kitchen, then 2017 could be the year that you turn your food truck business into a real success. Perhaps 2017 is the year you bring expansion to the table. Everyone’s situation is different. Nonetheless, make some amazing goals for 2017, preferably ones that will help you and your food truck business grow.”
While we are all about making goals (especially ones that are measurable, challenging yet attainable, feature deadlines, amazing plans, etc.), we are also about consistency.
In fact, consistency is going to get you into the food truck industry. Better yet, your habits are going to get you into the food truck industry.
The point being … what are you doing to make your goals and dreams come true?
Yes, a food truck is quite the investment from a money standpoint, but if you really want that dream to come true, then it is up to you to acquire the necessary funds to purchase a food truck. What are you doing to make that happen?
Are you networking with investors? Are you saving up your own money? Have you created your business plan yet? Have you tried taking said business plan to the next level by perfecting it? Have you looked at all of your options (for example, you can finance a food truck)?”
