You have to plan for your food truck to be profitable. Without a budget in place, it’s tempting to spend, or even overspend what you earn. Your budget is a key component to operating a successful mobile food business, one that operates profitably and with systems. Having a budget gives you a guide for covering your expenses and as a tool for setting goals. Goals can range from something as big as opening a new truck to something more immediate such as hiring an additional staff member. A budget will serve as your road map to meeting your goals; make sure you use one to plan for your profitability.
