tip of the day

Today’s mobile food businesses need to recognize that customer loyalty goes a long way. Food truck vendors need to continually re-evaluate your approach in your food truck customer service.

While you may have long lines today, next week anything could cause that to change. You need to take this into account and modify, modernize and customize your food truck customer service to elevate and differentiate your mobile food business from all of the other food service businesses in your area.

How To Customize Your Food Truck Customer Service
  • Understand the competition: Take a look at what is and isn’t working for other food trucks and restaurants in your market. While we would never suggest “stealing” their approach, we would suggest taking what works, and putting your own spin on it to improve your food truck customer service.
  • Give your menu a different spin: Take some time and effort to provide meals based on various dietary needs or allergies. Expanding your customer base through simple changes to some of your favorite menu items can be as easy as swapping out some ingredients for others.
  • Use social media for more: Vendors looking to differentiate their food truck customer service should consider using social media to notify your loyal customers about up-coming specials to keep them coming back. To many trucks use their social media account just to give customers their next location (if they use social media at all).
  • All in the family: Make all of your customers feel like a member of your food truck family.

These simple changes or additions to your current food truck customer service plan can help pave the road to continued growth of your food truck business.

In September of 2010 he created Mobile Cuisine Magazine to fill an information void he found when he began researching how to start a mobile hotdog cart in Chicago. Richard found that there was no central repository of mobile street food information anywhere on the internet, and with that, the idea for MCM was born.
