Things to Consider When You Choose a Food Truck Manufacturer
Buying a Food Truck? Do it With Confidence
Starting a food truck business and buying a Food truck is a big investment. First thing first, you should find a food truck manufacturer that meets your requirements and makes the process as seamless as possible for you. A lot of planning goes into creating your dream mobile kitchen and you need to be able to communicate with your prospective builder.
Before you choose to invest with a food truck manufacturer consider these points.
- Years in the Business:
The builder’s experience in the industry has a high impact on the final product. If a company has longevity in the industry, they will likely have industry tips and complete your build in a professional manner.
- Manufacturing Process:
Your food truck manufacturer should be open with you regarding the different stages of building your mobile restaurant and send you frequent progress pictures. Therefore the more transparency when the build is underway, the better!
- Customer Service:
It’s a good sign if your chosen builder pics up the phone is friendly and reliable. Food trucks are an investment, and this should be reflected in the quality of customer service provided.
Ask your builder what kind of warranties are included in the truck and make sure you understand how the warranties work.
The method of delivering the final product and its timeframe is another factor to ask and discuss with your prospective food truck manufacturer. Lead times range from 6 weeks to 30 weeks from some builders. It is your responsibility to plan your food truck launch based on the time required to build.
- Online Reviews and Referrals:
Take the time to check the builder’s Google and Facebook reviews/ratings. You can also ask the builder for referrals from past clients. This is a great way for you to get honest reviews from existing customers!
