Movember/No Shave November
Movember or No Shave November is a movement for men’s health issues. Participants can sign up here and are encouraged to grow a mustache for the month of November to bring awareness and raise donations for men’s health and cancers. Some food trucks have hosted Movember competitions between employees or among customers. Movember is a fun way to host contests or showcase your facial hair for men’s health on social media.
Veterans Day (November 11)
Veteran’s Day is November 11th. Some schools may have off and many workplaces are closed. This could be a good day for sales, it’s also a great time for your food truck to make a push on social media thanking veterans for their hard work and sacrifice for our country. If you have a veteran who works in your truck, showcase them on your food truck website. A simple “Thank You” goes a long way and let’s customers know that you care about people, not just sales.
November is the month of Thanksgiving so don’t forget to give thanks. Post what you’re thankful for on social media and ask customers to participate–make sure thank your customers for their support!
