Don’t Run From Your Food Truck Email Inbox

Don’t Run From Your Food Truck Email Inbox

For many of food truck vendors, your inbox is a source of embarrassment: it’s large, disorganized, and full of unanswered email. Try these simple tips to stop the shame spiral and better manage your food truck email inbox: 

  • Save, but don’t over-file. Rely on your search function to find old email. The time you spend deciding where to put an email — and then later trying to remember what folder it’s in — could be spent on replying to a new catering request.
  • Keep only one email per topic. There’s no need to keep all of the emails that are part of an email string if the last email has the chain of responses in it.
  • Do daily upkeep. Spend a few moments each day getting rid of emails you don’t need.
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.
