A Big Mistake To Avoid When Starting Your Own Mobile Food Truck
The other day , I was chatting with a customer who wanted to launch the first food truck of his own. On the surface , he seemed as if he'd thought about this and was able to secure some funding. mobile pizza caterer
He was all set for "roll" full steam ahead. My first thought was to inquire about his theory. He took about 45 mins to describe everything to me, and I'm still not sure I completely understand it.HIS BIG MISTAKE
It was a different country and the food that he served me was delicious. I'm not sure of what it's called, so I will not rewrite the name , but believe me, once I've had people try it, they'd love it.
However, that was also his biggest error. He would have to educate people on how to consume the food he was serving. He'd need to explain how this was created. He will need to explain the various ingredients.
And by the way, certain ingredients are extremely difficult to locate since they come from his home country, which is not readily accessible in the US. This is of course a BIG PROBLEM #2.
If you want to succeed in your own food van ( restaurant) your food should be easily understood and quickly.
Everybody knows about hamburgers - tacosBURRITOS PIZZA and of course barbeque and crepes to mention a few. But nobody known about his meals. Most likely, no one would know how say it correctly in many instances.
Also, you must be able to obtain your items quickly and easily. You may have to replenish your food supply and need to keep a large supply of the items you sell nearby to replenish your stock quickly.
Imagine if, for any reason, the company could not find these specific ingredients. He'd be out business.
Bottom Line: Ensure that your idea has already been accepted. You must ensure that you quickly and efficiently ( and cheaply) keep a good inventory of ingredients in your kitchen at all times.
