Cooking has always been one of my favorite pastimes. However, for many years, my cooking skills were limited only to those dishes that I was used to eating on a regular basis. A few years ago I decided to expand my horizons and challenged myself to learn a new dish from around the world each week. I am proud to say that I completed that challenge and learned a lot along the way. Today, I have decided to start this blog as a way to not only honor my accomplishment, but to share with the rest of the world everything that I learned about international cuisine.
If you've thought about opening a food truck but you're not sure where to start, you're not alone. The food truck industry is booming, and for good reason. However, for those looking to break into the business, it can seem daunting and confusing. How do you decide what to serve on your mobile food truck? What kinds of foods can you even make?
Here's a look at some of the things that you should understand when you're trying to choose the food you'll offer on a food truck.
Breakfast On A Food Truck
If you're planning on being an early morning destination, you'll want to target breakfast eaters and coffee drinkers. Try to offer a variety of coffee products beyond just the typical brew. Consider cappuccino, mocha, and latte options. You don't have to add a lot of custom flavors, but incorporating some seasonal flavor syrups can help make you the go-to spot for coffee on the morning commute.
Pastries are a popular grab-and-go breakfast solution for many people, so consider offering jumbo muffins, croissants, and coffee cakes. However, you don't want everything to be sweet. A food truck is a perfect place for breakfast sandwiches and breakfast burritos, too. With a griddle surface, you can easily make eggs and breakfast meats to order for your morning fuel-seeking crowd.
Lunch And Dinner On A Food Truck
Food trucks are a hot spot for lunch, and many potential customers are on a time limit, so choose things that you can make quickly and that can be consumed on the go. For example, sandwiches, fries, burgers, burritos, wraps, or similar foods are all great choices. These are things that you can put together quickly to order and get your customers back to their daily tasks. If you offer quick service with quality food, the word will spread fast and your truck is sure to become the destination, especially for busy lunchtime orders.
Dessert Options On A Food Truck
Food truck service doesn't have to be just about the main meals. After all, you shouldn't skip dessert! If you want to open a food truck that's an indulgence in itself, serve dessert! You can offer everything from fried apple pie egg rolls to gourmet cupcakes and so much more. Dessert is a canvas for creativity, and it's sure to make your food truck the talk of the town.
