How Should I Book a Food Truck?

at 11:30AM, Wednesday- June 5th, 2019 by Food Truck Spaces

 

If you’re looking for a professional, responsible and of course — yummy — food truck to book for your next event, sometimes it can be a challenge finding the right fit. So what’s the best way to book a food truck? The easiest answer to this question is, use a food truck booking company. There are other options such as making calls manually, asking a friend or sourcing some suggestions online.

Below I will break down why the easiest and most efficient way to book a truck for your event is by going with a food truck booking company.

Reason #1 – Time

In today’s world, time is a valuable and sought-after commodity. Using a food truck booking company that focuses on connecting clients (people looking for food trucks) and customers (the food trucks themselves!) increases your chances of a quick response and same day or week booking. Trying to call each truck yourself takes time and it takes even more time when the trucks don’t respond or take days/weeks to respond to your request. You can outsource the duties to a friend or individual but they will likely encounter the same issues. Using a food truck booking company allows you the assurance of knowing a team of industry professionals will touch base and book a food truck within an appropriate amount of time.

Reason #2 – Convenience

With most legit food truck booking companies, all you have to do is complete a few questions or register your event and the rest is taken care of for you. With the information, you provide the food truck company can quickly filter through trucks and find the best truck with availability for your event needs.

Reason #3 – Cost

In most and many circumstances, the cost is free to you, the event host. Food truck booking companies usually make their money by charging a small fee to the trucks for booking, making it free for you the host.

Reason #4 – Security

When using a legitimate food truck booking company, your contact information on file is notified as soon as a truck is booked, canceled, or swapped out for another truck. All you have to do is sit back and get notified. And if worse comes to worst, you’ll know that you can get a replacement with the few clicks of a button.

Reason #5 – Promotional materials

Food truck booking companies will also create the food truck flyers and send over menus, making it easier for you to promote the trucks at your event. No need to spend extra time creating your own marketing materials.

With all these reasons, why not save yourself time by using a food truck booking company?
