Catering trucks are a common sight in your neighborhood and across the industrial development areas. People working as factory workers and office employees depend on these catering trucks for their daily breakfast and lunch as the working area is far away from the city limits.
Mobile food service has been in existence for more than two decades where before the catering trucks were introduced, vendors used wooden or metal carts for their mobile food service.
With stringent laws introduced by the government to have a clean environment for mobile food services, vendors were asked to upgrade to these catering trucks which were equipped with the latest modular kitchen equipments and modern sanitary solutions which provided a hygienic environment to prevent any diseases. With the new technology providing platform for newer designs and types of equipment, it has become easy for a vendor to choose the exact truck that will serve his purpose.
Catering trucks are known to increase profits when compared with stationary restaurants. As stationary restaurants are visited by people in and around the surrounding areas, they have a limited customer base. As they can move from one location to another, they have a huge customer base. This is one of the foremost advantages associated with the mobile food service business.
If you are planning to get into the mobile food service business, the only initial investment that you will have to make is on the vehicle. You should choose from a wide variety of models that are available in the market which cater to the different needs of the vendors. Once you choose the vehicle, the next investment would be the equipment that are required in the kitchen such as stainless steel sinks, ovens, refrigerator, and provision for a proper water source. Many of the trucks have an in-built water tank that serves the purpose of washing utensils.
