Take Advantage of Technology for Your Food Truck Business

Posted by Firouzeh Tahbaz

Technology for Food TruckThe food truck industry is growing, and there are new food trucks on the road every season. To be competitive in this industry you must accept the fact that technology is affecting the way that people are doing business and use technology for your food truck. Knowing and using the technology in your food truck business can be a winning factor. The main way to use technology for business is through social media, but there are other ways as well. Here we show you some of them.

Food Truck Menu display

Your food truck menu presentation is a powerful element that can convince your customers to buy from you. Nowadays the large food franchises are using videos on their drive-thru or their main menu board to promote a special food item. You can improve your menu presentation by digital display screens. Visit Screen to get an idea about the possibilities.

Point of Sale

Since you are a mobile business you need to have a point of sale solution that can be as mobile as your food truck is. There are several websites that offer the point of sale but one that is already in Canada is called Square. According to their website:

Square allows merchants to accept mobile credit card payments via a plastic dongle that can be inserted into the port of a phone. Square, like a credit card company, takes a cut of the transaction (2.75% per swipe or 3.75% plus 15 cents for manually typed transactions.”

Another also takes debit, which is more convenient for customers. Take some time to research different POS systems to establish which one is best for you.

Food Truck Location and Marketing Apps

There are different types of apps that track the location of your truck and can connect you with the organizers of events, parties, and festivals like Roaming Hunger and Toronto Food Trucks.  When you are listed on these websites, people can find out where you are located on a daily basis.
