3 Times of the Year When It’s Best to Start a Food Truck, Brooklyn, New York

If you aspire to own and operate a restaurant, a custom food truck could be the best way to begin your business. They allow you to drive directly to your customers and slowly build your brand throughout an entire city or state. However, there are certain periods of the year in which you should start a food truck. Below are a few ideal times to jump into your venture. 

When to Start a Food Truck 

1. Winter

Because fewer customers are walking around during the winter, there will also be a reduced number of food trucks. This decrease in competition is the perfect opportunity to make an impression on your community. They’ll be more likely to opt for your fare and remember your name, so you’ll have a loyal customer base that follows you into the warmer months.

2. Spring or Summer

People spend more time outdoors when the snow melts, which provides more sale opportunities early on in your business. This is especially helpful after you just allotted so much money toward supplies and advertising, as you’ll be able to make back the investment. 

3. Now

If you have a menu in mind and have done the research, it’s time to start looking at mobile kitchen products. The longer you wait to act, the more likely you’ll talk yourself out of your goals. The only way to know if you’ll succeed is to begin testing the waters to find the ideal concept.
