Food trucks have grown in popularity over recent years as more restaurants are looking for creative ways to provide an added touch of fun and whimsy to their food menus. It seems as though as the popularity of these mobile catering businesses has grown so have the uses for them.
As technology advances, we are seeing more inventive uses for Taco food truck and even mobile catering businesses. As you may be aware some truck owners started their businesses to simply do transportation work. However, they quickly found other uses for their unique equipment which led them to become food truck distributors.
What are some of the uses for your food trucks? First, consider what you need and then think about how you can supply it. If you are simply looking to supply a mobile catering service to events then you may not need much else. New Mexican locavores fare just nicely along with rugged-chic interior (redwood tables, an old Indian drum set), rough wood benches (for seating), and colorful bolsters for serving. You may even want to add a small air table for serving finger foods or cold beverages if you plan on serving alcoholic beverages.
If you plan to distribute to local events you may also need additional supplies such as disposable tableware, non-skid utensils, and garbage bags. For events where disposable tableware is needed you may wish to look into some of the many available food trucks that come with a choice of different styles. Your event planner may be able to help you decide which styles are best for your customers’ needs. Disposable tableware and utensils are especially important items because of the sanitizing process involved.
Now let’s consider some other uses for food trucks for your events. Are there particular cuisines that you cater to that could use a mobile catering unit? Are there sandwiches or pastries that you would prefer to have made on-site? Food trucks are ideal for catering corporate events as well as school proms. You will find they can cater a wedding reception as well.
Some people do not understand the financial benefits of having a mobile food truck at their events. Although the initial investment can be substantial for most food truck owners, some benefits will become apparent over time. When you add up all of the costs of a catering service, party rental, and serving personnel you will quickly see how affordable having a food truck can be.
There are even mobile pizza shops that offer gourmet pizza and pasta that are delivered right to your customer’s home. The majority of event planners that own food trucks say they get better customer service than they might from a caterer. You can’t go wrong by investing in a quality food truck for your next event.
So what does all this mean to the event planner looking to hire a mobile catering unit? If you aren’t already aware of the number of advantages there are to having food trucks on your payroll, then you are truly missing out! When you have an event with numerous people, food trucks can make every experience fun and memorable.
