Understand The Downsides of Food Truck Ownership

tip of the dayThere are many rewarding things about being a food truck entrepreneur: the autonomy, the recognition, the creativity, not to mention the fact that you are pursuing your culinary dreams. But starting a mobile food business is never easy and not everyone is cracked up to be their own boss. Before you embark on a solo venture, remember that there are downsides too.

Being a food truck owner requires high risk, hard work, and many, many tradeoffs. The glamour of the got-rich-quick mobile food entrepreneur is often a far cry from what it’s really like in the trenches. Take a hard look at your life and be sure you know what you are risking before you set up your own food truck business.

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.
