Man, I guarantee you this: my food truck would be AWESOME.
So, I watched Chef the other night, and it was a good movie. Like, no one blew up, no one reached this epic pit of rock bottom…it was just a good story with a great cast. I didn’t feel dirty or weird when it was over…I felt like I needed to get myself a food truck!
Seriously: Chef Jefe made cuban sandwiches. He didn’t have this gigantic menu with weird stuff. He just made sandwiches! It was an easy idea, and a realistic goal. And it worked.
(yes, I know this is a movie. Stay with me.)
So, just daydreaming here:
What would I have on my menu if I had a food truck?
Wait, hold on…I need a killer name first: Okay, I’m coming up blank with this one. Ah. I know exactly what it would be.
Okay, so I got the catchy name. Now, what’s on the menu?
The best way to pick good food is to think about what people like to eat in your house.
- Gluten Free Turkey and Cheddar Panini
- Tamarah’s Amazing Chili
- Grubbin’ Shepherd’s Pie
- Homemade Gluten Free Bread Pudding
- Tamarah’s Rosemary Pickles
and to drink
- Tetly and Mint Iced Tea
That’s what I would do. I could make all of those items every day, easy.
So how much do food trucks cost? Not as much as you’d think!
RoamingHunger.com has a great site for food trucks for sale:
So, put down $50,000 for the truck, equipment, license (~$1,000) and food…and you got yourself a business!
I don’t know. That’s pretty awesome.
