If you’ve found the perfect candidate for that open position in your food truck operation, you need to offer the job in a way that encourages that person to accept it. Of course, the specifics of the job will matter to the applicant, but so will your attitude and approach when making the offer:

  • Don’t leave a message or send an email. Get the person live on the phone or in person so you can convey your enthusiasm.
  • Make it personal. Be specific about why you chose them and what you believe they have to offer your mobile food business. Recall details from the interview process.
  • Listen. Gently ask questions about the status of the candidate’s concerns (these likely came up in the interview), the timing of their decision, and other positions they may be considering.
