What to Know When Your Mobile Food Truck Serves a Special Event, Brooklyn, New York

As a mobile food truck owner, you face a unique set of challenges every day, including preparing your delicious meals in a custom kitchen while dealing with parking issues and less-than-ideal weather conditions. It can be difficult to find the time to expand your business, but attending local events is a terrific way to promote your company. The mobile food truck team at Shanghai Mobile Kitchen Solutions in Brooklyn, NY, discusses what you need to know when your food truck is serving a special event.

custom kitchenServing food at a local event requires a lot of preparation and planning to make sure you have enough food for everyone. You should consider the menu you will offer customers a few days before the event. For special events, some food truck owners offer their usual menu, but others simplify their offerings to include a few favorites. Offering your full menu could make your customer's wait times a little longer, but you'll have your regular customer's favorite dishes available. A simplified menu makes food shopping ahead of time and food preparation easier, but you may end up disappointing some customers who might not be able to order their favorite dish.

It's important for your team to find the time to rehearse before the event to make sure you are ready for the big crowds. Note how long it takes to have food ready for your customers from the time they order it to when they receive it. If you want to improve your customer's wait times, think about ways to expedite the serving process. A big time-saver for your team is to complete as much preparation work as possible ahead of time. Wash and slice the fruits and vegetables you'll need, and arrange the supplies so your team will have easy access to them.
