In the mobile food industry, unlike in the art world, critique is often negatively equated with criticism. But constructive criticism is essential to your food truck business since it requires creativity, innovation, and problem-solving.

Since leadership requires all three, food truck owners need to be sure they are not only open to criticism, but that they actively seek it out. Ask people — staff members  peers, customers — to poke holes in your ideas and approaches. Critique can be a useful approach to test your food truck ideas and keep you and staff members accountable.
