Food Truck

food truck is a large vehicle equipped to cook and sell food.Some, including ice cream trucks, sell frozen or prepackaged food; others have on-board kitchens and prepare food from scratch. Sandwiches, hamburgers, french fries, and other regional fast food fare is common. In recent years, associated with the pop-up restaurant phenomenon, food trucks offering gourmet cuisine and a variety of specialties and ethnic menus, have become particularly popular. Food trucks, along with portable food booths and food carts, are on the front line of the street food industry that serves an estimated 2.5 billion people every day.

A popular food trend across the country are mobile food truck restaurants. The benefits of food trucks include low cost and low overhead, making it one of the easier ways to open a new restaurant. Other advantages of a food truck business include its mobility- it can go to where the customers are. It also requires far less staff. However, a food truck is still a business that requires a lot of work and attention- especially in the first couple of years. Read more about starting a food truck business.
 While far cheaper than a brick-and-mortar restaurant, a food truck itself will costs thousands of dollars, even used. Unless you have a lot of extra cash lying around, you will most likely need to look for financing either through a bank, small business bureau or investors. Read more about finding financing for your food business.
