Food trucks are becoming more and more popular at local community events.
At nearly every festival, community event, or major athletic competition, there are food trucks. These portable restaurants offer a wide variety of foods served up in a fun and pleasant way. Customers can buy pizza, hamburgers, full scale meals and desert items at a low cost. Then they can find a table or spread out a blanket and enjoy a picnic style meal. At a recent Family Fun Day in South Florida, thousands of people enjoyed eating meals purchased from food trucks. Rob Tracey, who purchased some pizza from a food truck said, “I love the pizza I bought from a food truck.
In many situations, food trucks allow people who want to go into the restaurant or food service industry the opportunity to test the waters. They can get a sense of what customers like to eat and are willing to pay. And they can decide if they want to pursue a career in restaurant ownership.
