What Your Food Truck Should Do on Twitter

tip of the day

There is no doubt that Twitter is influential and tweeting your food truck’s next location is an important task, just recently it was found that the company has over 140 million active accounts. So how can your food truck business reap the benefits of this popular service outside of posting your current or next parking location? Try these three things:

  • Listen. You need to know what people are saying about you in the Twitterverse. Use Twitter Search to help you track what customers are saying about your food truck brand.
  • Talk. Get your voice in the mix to help build your following. But, don’t just yammer on about how great your menu items are. Give your customers something useful, such as special offers or information.
  • Support. Twitter is a great place to find prospective customers who need help. Attempt to solve their problems for them and they’ll often tweet to turn their complaint into a compliment.

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.
