4 Tips to Boost Food Truck Business in the Winter, Brooklyn, New York

Although mobile food trucks may boom during the hot summer months, it can sometimes be difficult to keep that momentum going through the winter season. Thankfully, there are ways to maintain a thriving business even when the temperature dips below freezing. The following tips are just some of the approaches you could take. 

How to Maintain Mobile Food Truck Business During the Winter

1. Try Catering

2. Create a Seasonal Menu

It might not be possible to create an entirely new menu for the winter season, but adding some new cold-weather options can draw in customers. Treats that provide a welcomed bit of warmth, such as hot chocolate, will do well.  

3. Build Customer Relationships

Maintaining momentum through the winter can actually start during the warmer months. As customers make repeat visits to mobile food trucks, it’s possible to develop a connection with them. Foster a friendly rapport to make the visit about more than food; it will become part of their day and continue throughout the year.

4. Brave the Weather

Winter weather can scare off many mobile food trucks, but staying active during a snowfall or cold spell can make for great business. While other trucks call it a day, the one that continues to operate could potentially see some of the biggest business of the season. Of course, staying safe is the top priority above all else.
