Food trucks are typically located where people are. Every region has regulations that dictate where trucks can operate. Regardless of regulations, food trucks try to vend from heavily trafficked pedestrian areas or in business parks. During the pandemic, many trucks vended from communities once or twice per week. Food trucks are all about bringing great food to hungry patrons.
What are the most popular food truck cuisines?
Patrons are always excited for great food regardless of whether it's a food truck/a stand/or a restaurant. Sometimes the location of the event dictates what the most popular options are. If you’re at a local curb without tables and chairs, expect to see a lot of handheld dishes that don’t need a fork and knife. If you're at an event with seating people tend to order whatever they’re interested in without regard to ease of consumption.
Is there an app to find food trucks?
The best way to find food trucks through an app is BFT. It let's you locate food trucks near you, browse food truck schedule, view food truck menus, and order food online. The BFT app can be downloaded for iOS and Android.
What's the best way to bring a food truck to my office or neighborhood?
Unfortunately, the pandemic put a lot of food trucks out of business. With the increased demand and the decreased supply, it can be harder and harder to get a food truck to commit. The best way to entice a food truck to jump into a regular rotation is to offer a minimum guarantee ($700-$1000). Food trucks take a lot of risk coming to a new location and a minimum guarantee helps to ensure they won’t be left at a loss after a lunch or dinner service.

Can I reserve a food truck for catering?
Food trucks are the perfect fit for catering events. Fresh, made to order food out of a full kitchen is the best way to serve your guests. The old scoop and serve catering model creates too much waste, doesn't account for consumer dietary restrictions and doesn't match the quality of a freshly cooked meal.

Should I tip at a food truck?
Most food truck employees see tips as part of their pay. In fact, most food truck owners will boast about how much an employee could make in tips during the hiring process.
