Lately, I have been seeing restaurants going in the direction of a food truck. Are food trucks the new last resort, or is it that business is booming so much that expansion is needed? I get that a food truck would go brick and mortar, but is going the other way a good sign? I really hope it is, because honestly it could mean trouble in paradise. Food trucks are typically cheaper to operate and maintain, so that is why many start out in a food truck. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good food truck; especially if they are awesome, fast and near me. But if your food is good, priced correctly and your service rocks, you won’t have to venture out. They will come to you, not the other way around by you having to go to them.
I am not a business expert, but I have seen a lot of new businesses open and a lot of businesses close in the short amount of time running this blog. It’s not hard to see patterns in business and how the population responds to business actions. If you’re going to try something new, be sure to think it through and consider all options. If it doesn’t propel you forward, it will push you back.
