Here’s their up-to-date guide to this year’s biggest food truck trends.
Local & Sustainable Ingredients
This year, NYC’s most successful mobile food trucks have been featuring locally grown produce, locally sourced meats, and environmentally-friendly design. More than ever, customers are interested in knowing where their food came from and how it was produced. Locally sourced food trucks offer a welcome alternative to fast-food chains, and this trend shows no sign of slowing down.
Custom food trucks that once sold only food have been expanding their menus to include specialty drinks. There’s no need to go through the red tape of obtaining a liquor license to cash in on this trend; house-made soft drinks, juices, and cold brew coffee are all popular choices.
Authentic Ethnic Food
Today’s food truck diners have a huge appetite for non-Western dishes. The market rewards chefs who can make the unique flavors of their native culture quick and convenient without losing that homemade feel. To start a food truck that’ll stand out from the crowd, take inspiration from those old family recipes.
