Anyone who has ever tried their hand at running their own restaurant or concession stand business has certainly found that one of the most frustrating parts of the whole process is the handling, preparation and serving of the food. While the market is constantly expanding, it can still be difficult to keep up with demand. Food trucks have provided many opportunities for those in the food industry to improve their businesses and increase profit levels. However, these vehicles have also been involved in a number of unfortunate events, from injuries and accidents to death. In order to ensure you and your drivers remain safe on the road, we’ve put together this list of Mexican Food Trucks uses.
Gourmet Food Truck – The term “gourmet” is used because these trucks are primarily designed to serve gourmet food. With several trucks now in operation in the southern United States, customers have access to some of the best gourmet food available anywhere. Many popular restaurants have moved from a truck to a kitchen truck as an extension of their restaurant. If you’re in the food industry, these trucks are a great opportunity to expand your offerings while increasing your customer base.
Kitchen Truck – If you have a large gathering of friends or even a party of 100, a food truck can be the perfect solution to providing food and drinks to your gathering. Unlike other kitchen trucks, a mobile kitchen will allow you to place not only your products on the cart but multiple refrigeration units, warming areas and carts for cooling as well. They are extremely popular in college towns where proximity to an event is important but everyone needs a place to sit for a meal as well. Many college towns have become synonymous with college parties due to the proximity to bars and restaurants.
Mobile Waffle Shop – For anyone in the food industry who enjoys a sweet treat, mobile waffle shops can be an excellent way to make a profit. These waffle trucks offer customers the chance to order their favorite toppings, colors and flavors and then have the food truck deliver it right to their front door. Mobile waffle shops are popular in many metropolitan areas as well as college towns. While they are commonly associated with college parties, there are also waffle shops that cater to a more niche market and are more apt to be found in grocery stores, farmer’s markets or even large chain supermarkets.
Used Ford Trucks – If you are thinking about investing in a food truck for your restaurant or other business, consider purchasing used. You can get conversions at a good price, but be sure to check with the vendor first to see if they are allowed to sell used equipment for food trucks. Food trucks and other vehicles can be purchased used but you may need to invest the time to get conversion packages from the vendor first. Be sure to research any purchase related to this kind of equipment so that you do not get cheated out of your investment when you finally do make an agreement to buy second hand.
Commercial Kitchen Equipment – With all of the technology available today, some restaurants might think that they can get by without purchasing any commercial kitchen appliances.
