Delegate Food Truck Tasks, Then Disengage

Delegate Food Truck Tasks, Then Disengage

tip of the day

Entrusting a project in your food truck business to someone else can be tough for many mobile food vendors. But if you don’t rely on others, you’ll always end up doing everything yourself. You’ll also shortchange those who could learn by taking new tasks. Once you delegate something, don’t be tempted to micromanage the process. Agree on the expected outcomes and just let go.

If you’ve asked a staff member to take care of an important project, don’t spend endless time on edits and corrections. Be clear on the parameters and remove yourself so she can do it her way, not yours. This is much more efficient than taking over, and the end product will likely be better.

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.
