3 Characteristics of Successful Mobile Food Truck Owners, Brooklyn, New York

Mobile food trucks continue to grow in popularity. From established restaurants to startups with unique ideas, everyone’s getting on board. Most people who are successful in this industry share a few characteristics. If you have these traits, too, you can better gauge whether or not you’ll be successful.

Traits of Successful Mobile Food Truck Owners

1. Customer Service

Mobile food trucks are an intimate space, both for employees and customers. If you want to be successful, you need to have great customer service skills. Go the extra mile and know how to handle disgruntled customers. Since most food trucks advertise their business on social media, you’ll also need to know how to handle customer service problems and requests on Facebook, Twitter, and other platforms.

2. Tech & Business Savvy

Your customers will also expect to pay with their credit cards at your trucks. You’ve got to have the technology your customers expect, such as a credit card reader that plugs into a phone or device. 

3. Love for Learning

Perhaps the most important quality in a mobile food truck owner is a desire to learn. You’ll have to familiarize yourself with business plans, how to secure funding, and more. If you aren’t technologically savvy, you have to learn how to use social media and mobile payment platforms, too. If you love learning new skills, that will make things immensely easier when you come across something you don’t know.
