I am an American living in Europe. The food truck revolution has not hit Europe yet (in general), but I think certain cities are prime for it. The city where I live just got its first food truck. I have wanted to start my own food truck here for at least a year but am too caught up in my day job (in tech) to make this leap.
But after reading the news today about the first "US-style" food truck, I think it is time.
If I do this I plan to quit my job, and go full out working hard every day to launch my first truck. I have some business experience as well, and alot of marketing experience so thats good. I love to cook but am not professionaly trained and dont know how to mass produce food yet. This is one of the many things I realize I will have to learn.
I will purchase the following books as a start:
Do you recommend any other books?
Another Idea I had was to take a couple of months in the US, and work for a successful food truck. Possibly arrange with the owner a bit of training on the business. Do you think this is necessary? I am a bit of a perfectionist so I want to learn how to reach the high standards of US food trucks as early as possible.
