Get the Real Bang for Your Buck – Invest in a Food Truck!
So You Wanna Sell Food?
Half a million dollars. That’s what you’re looking at if you want to start a restaurant. That’s not even mentioning all the time you’re going to be spending getting all your resources together, all the permits you’re going to need, or even scouting out a location. Who knew selling food could be so difficult?
But Vending Trucks, I make amazing food! Everyone, including my dear old mum, has told me I’m a fool for not starting an eatery yet. It’s been my dream to start a restaurant my whole life. Wouldn’t I easily recover those expenses in a short time?
What if I told you nearly 25% of all new restaurants fail within the first year, and by year three nearly 50% have? Your investment is looking a little less surefire now, I bet. Not everyone is willing to risk their home.
Allow us at Vending Trucks Inc. to offer an alternative.
The mobile food truck. It allows you to cook professionally for crowds just as well as a traditional brick n’ mortar setup, but only costs a fraction of the price. Let’s just say you could launch a whole fleet of food trucks for the price of starting a restaurant. That’s just the first of many benefits of choosing a food truck over a permanent location.
Let’s say you really want to cater to the lunch crowd, why not embody convenience and bring your fare directly to the masses, so to speak. Set up shop outside an office building, a busy downtown mall, or even a construction site. Watch everyone flock to you. You’re new. You’re novel. You’re hip. You’re what everyone will be talking about when they get back from lunch. And it comes with free delivery! Not to mention delivery food often gets cold in transit.
“Oh my god Jen, did you try Beef Bus’s BBQ Bonanza Sandwich? It’s literally to die for.”
Expect glowing reviews like that. Daily.
Been somewhere for a week straight and business is tapering off? Just move on to a new place; try the park and get all the moms out there to stop by with their kids for lunch. The possibilities are endless, my friend. You’re not chained to one spot day in and day out. Liven things up with a social media marketing campaign so that your loyal customers follow you around town and create a scene.
With a food truck you’re not limited by the time of day, either.
Say you’ve got a killer idea that the midnight crowd would love, like, just spitballin’ here, a pizza burrito stuffed with a whole fried chicken. Clearly your ideal crowd is someone leaving the bar at approximately 12-2 am. Why not set up shop right outside of a row of bars downtown? The key to food trucks is convenience, and when you’re bringing your food directly to the customer, you can’t get more convenient than that.
Are you an avid festival or carnival goer? Wouldn’t you like to sell your eats at a fun place like that? All you’ll have to do is pull up the truck and turn the engine off – once you get the go-ahead from the festival operators of course – and you’re ready to serve.
You can even take your food on the road and visit a new city every week.
I can’t stress enough how in control of your destiny you are with a food truck. See the world and serve up a burger to a friendly face in every vista you view. If that’s not the American dream, I don’t know what is. Let Vending Trucks, Inc. be your guide.
