Add Catering To Your Frequently Asked Questions Page

If you already have a catering section for Frequently Asked Questions page (FAQs) on your food truck website then this article will only be a review for you. Now if you haven’t gotten to writing one yet, this article can be used as a guide.

Frequently Asked Questions Page

Your FAQs page should include the questions that you hear most often. You can even toss in a little humor into with your answers to keep prospective customers reading.

How a FAQ page help your food truck

  • FAQs will save you and your staff time, allowing them to do what you’ve hired them for…cooking, selling and giving them more time to reach out to prospective catering clients.
  • They will increase your Search Engine Optimization (SEO) rankings. The more relevant words related to food truck catering in your area, the higher your food truck website site will be ranked by search engines.
  • FAQs will save you from unnecessary phone calls and emails. Prospective clients can find answers to their own questions without having to call or email you.
  • You keep a consistent message. If multiple people within your food truck organization handle catering requests, it’s important that everyone is on the same page. If you develop a list of answers for FAQs, you need to involve all of the members of your team that deal with the catering portion of your food truck business.

Common questions to include in the catering section of your Frequently Asked Questions Page:

  • Are you going to be there on the day of the event?
  • What happens if all of my guests can’t make it?
  • What happens if more come?
  • How much food do you make?
  • Will my price go down if a take away one side or entree offering?
  • What happens if it rains?
  • Can I bring my own alcohol?
  • Do you do a tasting before we book?
  • What can you change to meet my budget?
  • What services do you provide other than the food?
  • What does the service charge cover?  Why do you charge tax?
  • How many staff will work my event?
  • Where is my food prepared?
  • What will my place setting look like?
  • What does your staff wear?
  • What is your cancellation policy?

I’m sure you can add many more to this list, but this is a good start for any size food truck business that caters.

About the Author:

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.

    Thank you Winn. It is such a great industry why aren't there more sites covering it? I guess that's better for us, because we get to interact with all of the great vendors.
