Looks like they don’t really understand commercial food and what it means to watch food costs and how to prep for big volumes.

Too many food truck owners do everything wrong, they never think about what’s practical, just rush into it coz they have a passion but don’t think about the business side. If you’re gonna start a food truck you need to focus on the business more than anything.
Connie Smith (5 дней назад)
You need to know exactly what you are going to do before you start. You are very limited in space so everything should be set up for what you are going to serve. Do you have a fryer, coffee pot, how much freezer space, what size grill. Changing your mind and retrofitting will be a waste of money.

ABC is Fake news for the sheep
Brannon Brackett (2 месяца назад)
Yep. Also, They really over complicated this. They don't need hire a team to promote a food truck, and the only reason their not raking in the big bucks is because they are selling expensive food for cheap, making pennies in profit per sale. Most people who get food from a food truck don't care about quality, they just want a cheap, quick meal. If you're thinking about doing this, just stick to hot dogs, nachos, tacos, chips, etc.

Larger cities tend to have more restrictions and larger licencing fees. If you understand the business end and have access to good locations you can make a go of this in smaller villages and even rural areas.

What is the truck's model and brand?
psovegeta (4 месяца назад)
I considered doing this one time. Instead, I bought a work van and did LTL runs instead. Start up was easy. All I needed was a van and commercial driver's insurance.
psovegeta (1 месяц назад)
LTL is Less than a truck load. Sometimes factories need deliveries made that are considered "hot freight" meaning it HAS to be delivered quickly but they don't require a semi truck to come and pick it up. So a freight broker will send a smaller vehicle out to pick it up. My work van, a Ford E-150 will carry up to 1 ton or 2,000lbs. I would say for anyone wanting to get into doing LTL runs. Get a reliable van. You can use a mini van or car but keep in mind that smaller vehicles will prevent you from getting loads that need a bigger vehicle. A work van is best. Then you can look up freight brokers in your area. Tell them you have a van you want to put to work. You'll need commercial drivers insurance but make sure you can cross state lines with it. Be sure to save ALL your fuel receipts and keep track of how many miles you drive for the job. Since I only drove Monday thru Friday, I only wrote down my odometer reading at the start of the week and at the end of the week because I knew I didn't do any personal driving throughout the week. Also save any receipts you may be able to rationalize as a business expenditure. Lets say for instance you buy tools or parts for repairing your vehicle. Even if you buy a portable propane stove to cook your own meals while on the road. Or even a smart phone to take photos of your bills of lading and store them on your........$1,500 laptop that just happens to be Oculus ready which is also a tax write off. What ever you can do to bring your income lower on paper. Also be sure to use your GPS on your phone but if you're like me and don't want to pay tolls, you can tell Google maps to bypass tolls. If you DO pass thru an automatic electronic toll in which I have before and I couldn't pay, you can always pay online. Just remember where the toll was. And when you file your taxes, you're gonna have to itemize all your receipts and take them into a professional tax preparer that specializes in trucker tax filing. HR Block may not cut it. Keep your receipts in a folder thru out the year when you get one. I mark my receipts so its easier for me to identify what category they go into like I write "fuel" on the top of all my fuel receipts. Tools for tools, Repair for parts towing and for invoices from garages. You will NOT need to save food receipts as you will automatically get a $25/day tax credit for food. But if you buy food from a gas station, purchase your fuel separately.

Meh. Extremely labor intensive with no way to move up. You cant just hand it off to an employee because they wont give a shit about the quality. So you just bought yourself a high risk low profit labor intensive "business" that you cant escape from. Sounds fun!!!

That’s horrible. They don’t even look like that . They are using a used Fed Ex truck . That’s not true. There are plenty of people of color with food trucks like in my original hometown in MS. It’s a wing truck. Stop trying to throw race into everything. This is not white privilege. You can do anything you put your mind to even if you have not seen others that look like you do it.

I support you and think it's a great idea! Who wants to butcher animals all day anyway? Go for it! Veganism has risen 1500%. There are plenty of food trucks accomodating for other styles of food so why not? Good luck!
CJ Em (23 дня назад)
Destined to fail idea. There is not a big enough market for a vegan food truck. Maybe have a few vegan options but a vegan only food truck will fail that I can guarantee you. I am a sous chef, I cook for hundreds of people every day I get asked a vegan question maybe once every other day while the other 400 had no vegan questions just gives you an idea of the demand for vegan cuisine.

its gonna be hard especially when your starting. both of them will be worn out everday thinking about the kitchen work, your debt & salary. there is a lot to consider in building a business its really a big puzzle. I wouldn't advice you to quit your day job at first until every thing is ready to be air born. I don't believe in following your passion I believe in following what satisfy you, that makes you wake up and work excitingly with great ideas that add value to people especially when it cannot be copied or substitute with anything. then thats where passion begins and believing starts. just don't get dillusional, if it really doesn't work get a shotgun and shoot it. try a new thing.

only reason they are not that profitable is their menu. Its too high quality for a food truck. Keep it simple and cheap.

No . They are in the wrong place for there menu. They would buy it in DC no problem, but if you have the blessing of God on your business. then you will do well anywhere regardless of price . That’s what I’m learning. He will do it . Well you have to put the blessing on your career and business. I know it works and will .He’ll send ppl your way and in abundance.

Monica Beal (1 месяц назад)
There are wing trucks . They had one in my original hometown in MS. They just had other jobs and did not run it full time like a business. Great wings . I wanted to blog about but I can’t at the moment. Nice truck and great food
Michael Walker (9 месяцев назад)
No fries just chips so you can concentrate on wings! You need two guys.. one taking orders, payments, helping w blanch frying throughout shift, helping w finish fry and the other guy helping w finish fry, tossing wings in sauces, prepping garnishes, and packing wings in a foil wrapper and to-go box
Michael Walker (9 месяцев назад)
Also Carolina reaper as the hottest wing
Michael Walker (9 месяцев назад)
Mine would be mild, hot buffalo, bbq, sesame teriyaki, korean, spicy orange, alfredo, garlic parm, mole, lemon pepper, Italian marinara topped w parm, Thai red curry, and roasted garlic
Michael Walker (9 месяцев назад)
Harry Vu He could blanch fry the wings at 300 degrees, store, then when someone orders finish in a 400 degree fryer for 2 minutes to finish cooking, heat up, and crisp. He would need a truck that has alot of refrigeration
