Food Truck vs. Sit Down Restaurant
You may just love the idea of a food truck and don’t plan on expanding from there or you may see it as a stepping stone to a bricks and mortar restaurant. Either way owning a food truck makes good business sense. You need the same skills to run both, but often times a food truck is a more affordable first investment to make with fewer overhead costs and it allows you to start building your brand small and learning the ropes of owning your own business before expanding. Because everything is on a smaller scale you have the flexibility to try new products and new strategies out without making a big commitment to it. Too many restaurants fail not because the owner lacks passion or a hard work ethic, but because they are inexperienced at picking the right location and managing inventory for example. Because it is just you or at the most another one or two others on the food truck you have to be hands-on in every aspect of running your business so it is easy to work out all the kinks.
It is also easier to diversify your income with a food truck because you can also take on catering jobs and even offer cooking lessons with it. This allows you to take on other types of customers that you might not be able to reach otherwise. Another pro of owning a food truck is that you will be able to get a real sense of who your customers are and which neighborhoods respond better to your menu as you travel around the city. It is easier to test out new dishes on a food truck then in a restaurant because it is on a smaller scale. If a particular dish doesn’t do so well, it won’t hit you are hard in the pockets if you introduced it on your food truck.
Because you are traveling all around in different neighbors, maybe even different towns and cities, you will also be able to get a good sense of what areas you do better in. This way if you decide to open a sit-down restaurant later you will have a better sense of which neighborhoods you will want to look for space in.
Make no mistake though, buying a food truck is still a serious investment that you have to prepare and plan for. Especially for when those unexpected bills come in or you are not making as much money as you initially projected. A well thought out business plan will help ensure our success whether you buy a food truck or a brick and mortar restaurant.
Why a Burger Food Truck?
While there are a lot of different food trucks out there, one of the most popular types is the burger food truck. Who doesn’t love a good burger with fries or even a hot dog for lunch or dinner? Even the pickiest of eaters can find something they like off a menu like this. With a burger food truck, you know that you will draw a lot of customers and another good thing is that within a typical burger joint menu there is still room for diversification so you can have fun with it. Do you want your food to be completely organic? Will you use only fresh meat from grass-fed cows?
Burger menus also adapt easily to different kinds of events that you might want to take your food truck to. A street festival? Check. A baseball game? Check? Outside a tourist attraction? Check. Check.
Besides the normal fare of burgers, fries, hot dogs and chicken sandwiches, if you have the right equipment you can also offer milkshakes, ice cream and other sweet desserts
