Building Trust in Your Food Truck Team

Building Trust in Your Food Truck Team

tip of the day

Although skepticism has its merits, trust is crucial to the effectiveness of your food truck business. To cultivate trust among your staff members, place your trust in them first. Show them you believe they are competent and up to the job at hand. Value their contributions by trusting them with increasingly challenging tasks and give them the autonomy they need to shine. Leaders who “test” employees can do serious harm to the overall well-being of the team. Trust is a two-way street and the sooner you start down your side, the sooner your food truck employees will accelerate down theirs.

 

Richard is an architect by degree (Lawrence Technological University, Southfield, Michigan) who began his career in real estate development and architectural planning. 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.
