Lead Your Food Truck with Confidence

Lead Your Food Truck with Confidence

tip of the day

Confidence is a key ingredient in leading your food truck business effectively. Unfortunately, sometimes it’s easier for a food truck owner to know their weaknesses than their strengths. Want to build self-confidence in the leadership of your food truck? Ask yourself these questions:

  • What do you do well? Make a list of your strengths. These items are not the same as the accomplishments on a resume or a business plan — they are what made those accomplishments possible. How will your strengths lead you to your truck’s future success?
  • Why should people follow you? Look back at situations where you mobilized yourself and your food truck team to face a particularly tough challenge. Why did people believe in your ability to get things done and trust that you were the one to follow? (Outside of the fact that your staff are employed by you)

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.
