Reader Asks: How Do I Start a Food Truck Business?

By November 27, 2012

Follow me on:

Dave J., like many Americans, is out of work. He wants to open a food truck business as a step toward one day owning his restaurant.

The company I work for recently downsized and now I'm looking for a new job. I've been thinking of starting a food truck business. I've always wanted to own my own restaurant and this seems like a step in the right direction. I found a decent pre-owned food truck that was used to sell sandwiches and soups. Beyond buying the truck, I'm not sure what else I need to do to get my business up and running. Any suggestions?

Food trucks are an affordable alternative to opening a new restaurant. They have low overhead and don't require a huge amount of money to get started. Read on for the rest of my advice to Dave.

Several European countries have either banned hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils or have set future dates
for elimination of their use in foods. In these areas of the world,
there is usually less access to meat, but people do have access to virgin coconut oil.
Below are some great sources of fat that we should be including in our diets daily.

I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your site. It appears like some of the written text in your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This could be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.
Cheers
