Instill Passion in Your Food Truck Staff

Instill Passion in Your Food Truck Staff

tip of the dayPassionate employees produce better results. The best way to spark passion in your food truck employees is to demonstrate your own passion — but you needn’t be a cheerleader. Here are three ways to authentically show your enthusiasm and inspire others:

  • Focus on the positive. Employees know when a leader truly cares about a company. Passionate mobile food vendors can’t help but talk about what’s working well and try to find ways to fix what isn’t.
  • Don’t ignore the negative. Passionate food truck business owners aren’t all about sunny skies — they address negatives in a realistic way and help people solve problems.
  • Set high expectations. This doesn’t mean unattainable workloads. Passionate mobile food vendors should inspire and challenge people to do their best, without overloading them.
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.
