THEY’VE BEEN AROUND FOREVER
Or, at least since people have decided they did not want to eat at home.
The food industry, in general, tends to welcome these establishments.
They have a common history.
Each knows what to expect.
THEY’RE EASY TO FIND
Brick and mortars don’t move.
That makes it a lot easier for their patrons to establish favorites and make a habit of visiting them.
THERE ARE LESS LEGAL RESTRICTIONS
Let’s take a closer look.
Both brick and mortars and food trucks have certain legal obligations.
- health codes
- food handling laws
But, food trucks have to make sure they follow the obligation of every city they travel to.
PARKING PROBLEMS ARE PREDICTABLE
Brick and mortar owners have figured this out ahead of time.
Either they provide their own parking or often provide some sort of valet service.
Food truck operators are often required to move daily.
They rarely know if parking will be a problem for patrons.
LONG HOURS, LESS HELP
The restaurant industry requires long hours.
But, food truck operators don’t have the luxury of room.
That often means less employees.
Less employees mean that after a day of dicing and cooking, the operators are left to the cleaning themselves.
