A Guide to Family-Friendly Menus for Custom Food Trucks, Brooklyn, New York

To succeed with your custom food truck, you need a menu that attracts a wide range of people, including families. Shanghai Mobile Kitchen Solutions has provided kitchen equipment to these mobile eateries since 1979. Here, this New York City-based company offers some pointers on creating a family-friendly menu.

3 Ways to Make a Family-Friendly Custom Food Truck Menu 

1. Add Milder Options

Grownups may love your spicy chicken tenders, but kids tend to have a milder palate. To ensure that every member of the family can order from you, it’s a good idea to offer milder or non-seasoned versions of your dishes.

2. Be Flexible With Portion Sizes

And when you have smaller portions available, someone who isn’t that hungry or is following a diet can also order from you. 

3. Offer Dessert

Almost any place that has good dessert options is a hit with kids. You don’t have to worry about keeping ice cream cold, either. It’s enough if you have cookies or cupcakes to satisfy sweet tooths. If you’re worried about keeping more perishable items in your food truck kitchen, stock lollipops or hard candy instead.

With these simple menu additions, your custom food truck is sure to attract both families with children and singles alike. Shanghai Mobile Kitchen Solutions is ready to help you furnish your food truck and ensure that it meets local regulatory standards. They have over 25 years of experience in the mobile food industry and have an inventory of high-quality supplies you can depend on. Visit their website or call (800) 253-4815 for more information.
