How to Come Up with a Great Food Truck Concept
If you want to get into the food truck game, one of the most important things that you will need – beyond a truck that can be converted – is a cool concept. There is a lot of food truck competition in many cities throughout the U.S. To be profitable, you may need to offer something a little different than the standard food truck fare.
You may have already come up with a food truck concept based on anything from your heritage, your travels, or your love of a particular kind of cuisine. For example, you may have a long-time love for Hawaiian plate lunch – which could inspire a food truck concept that could do good business in the continental United States, where it is a lot harder to find plate lunch.
You may also draw inspiration from your community itself, any holes that you have identified in the market (such as an allergen-friendly food truck), or even a loved one who you want to honor. When considering your concept, be sure to think about the practicalities, including:
- What equipment will be necessary to cook this food?
- Will I have enough space in my truck to prepare this food?
- How much of this menu can be prepared ahead?
- How long will it take to prepare an average menu item?
- Are my menu items easy to eat on the go?
If you have a great idea that won’t be feasible to prepare in a small space or for hundreds of people, then it may be time to go back to the drawing board. A successful food truck will offer great food that is well-suited for outdoor events – and that can be prepared relatively quickly so customers aren’t kept waiting.
