Get Your Food Truck Team Engaged

Get Your Food Truck Team Engaged

tip of the day

Daily team meetings are supposed to be collaborative events for your food truck business. If you are doing all the talking and your staff are doing all the listening, something’s not right. Here are two ways to revive your team and get their best thinking out on the table:

  • Share your ideas sparingly. It is tempting to share all of your genius ideas upfront. Instead, share one or two suggestions at a time. By limiting your comments, you give others the chance to contribute.
  • Ask lots of questions. Don’t worry about having all of the answers. Ask insightful questions that spark discussion. When people speak up, ask them to clarify their ideas so others can understand.


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.
