3 Don'ts for Owners of Mobile Food Trucks, Brooklyn, New York

If you own a mobile food truck, you’re likely interested in growing your business. From utilizing technology to trusting your employees to get the job done right, there are a variety of steps you can take to accomplish this. While there is advice you should follow, there are also mistakes you should steer clear of to ensure your success.   

What to Avoid as a Mobile Food Truck Owner

Don't Be a Ghost Online

mobile food trucksThe internet and social media have become a huge part of modern business plans. Having a website and Facebook page is essential to being discovered. Make sure you are active on all popular platforms. Don't go weeks without updating your blog or settle for a lackluster website. A strong online presence can significantly improve your brand awareness. 

Don't Be Afraid to Loosen the Reigns 

As an owner, you are understandably attached to your company. However, one person can only accomplish so much. Don't be so attached that you refuse to delegate work to capable employees. Give your trust to those you hire and allow them some freedom.

Don't Stay Still

Mobile food trucks have the unique capability of being able to move from place to place and city to city. It’s always wise to secure a spot that has proven itself profitable. However, don't resign yourself to staying in one location. Branch out and venture into new areas. This will help get the word out about your kitchen. Remember, you start a food truck for the freedom of it, so use your mobility wisely.
