Food truck catering is a rapidly growing trend. After all, food trucks are affordable, and they add uniqueness to an event that standard catering just cannot. If you want to incorporate this fresh new catering concept into your event, here are a few tips that you may find useful.
The first thing you need to do is estimate the number of people you are catering to. The number of guests and budget are interrelated. So, you need to estimate the headcount if you want to set a budget. Only then you can set up the venue and even select the menu.
Food truck prices vary between their menu options (of course!) For example, a frozen popsicle truck will be less expensive than a hot dog one, and a hot dog truck will be cheaper than a pretzel bun salami sandwich truck. Accordingly, you need to figure out how much you are willing to spend on booking a food truck, and then move on to find one that falls within your budget.
Choose a food truck that is not only within your budget, but one that complements the atmosphere you hope to create at your event. It would be great if the food truck offers a diversified menu to keep most (if not all) of your guests happy and satisfied. “Where can I find a good food truck near me?” All you need to do is go online and search for all food trucks available for booking in your area.

Decide the right spot for your food truck – one that is close enough to the main action so your guests can easily access it, but not too close that it becomes the focal point of the event. Keep in mind that most city administrations have restrictions in place that determine where a food truck can be parked. It is a good idea to check with your city hall and your selected venue ahead of the event.
Are you prepared for the weather? Well, weather conditions are unpredictable – we all know that. So, what if it gets too hot or starts to rain? You can ask your food truck owner if they have awnings available to block the hot weather, and a tent to cover the food truck and serving area in case of rain.
Having a food truck will certainly add excitement to your event and encourage guests to mingle. Plus, you will save a ton of money. Cheers to that!
