Food Trucks for the Future
The Covid-19 pandemic has thrown us into a new, uncertain time. Almost every single industry has been affected. The restaurant and hospitality industry has taken a particularly large hit. What do these changes mean for food truck owners and people keen to get into the mobile food industry? Lets take a look at some of the benefits of food trucks and concession trailers in our world today and beyond.
No Monthly Rent and Other Money Savers
One of the greatest benefits of being a food truck owner is the relatively low costs compared to a brick and mortar location. You can choose where to operate and when, and you don’t have to pay rent monthly. Take some time to evaluate your expenses, and see where you may be able to further save money. This could be food costs, insurance, staff…
You Can be a One-Person Show
Depending on your location and how busy you are, you can operate solo, or with a small crew. You don’t need to hire a big team of servers, bartenders, and chefs. Keeping your employee wages low will help you save money as we all navigate the changing food industry. If you are able to, keep a small staff and do as much on your own as you can.
Consider The Changes you Can Make to Adapt
Maybe this summer we won’t have the big music festivals and special events we’ve become accustomed to for summer months, but that doesn’t mean the season is a flop. A big part of being an entrepreneur is pivoting and adapting to changing times. Consider doing a food delivery program, where you bring prepared frozen meals or dinners to customers, or easy takeout options at a set daily location. Another idea is providing food service or food specials for frontline workers at medical centres or essential businesses. This helps the community and can also be a great way to promote your business.
