Everybody knows that the mobile food truck scene has taken over all throughout the country. From California, to New Jersey, people are responding positively to getting their lunch from food trucks available on school campuses and corporate buildings. I guess that’s why the staff at Executive Auto Salon has been so busy answering phone calls about the customization services we offer!
It’s true! The only reason why I am writing this blog right now is because I needed a break from designing mobile food trucks for clients calling from around the country. Even though we offer our mobile food truck-building and customization services nationally, I would like to take some time out to speak about the positive impact food trucks have had on the local food scene in Philadelphia. How and why have food trucks become the craze in the city of Brotherly Love?
Philadelphia has always had a prestigious food scene. Whether people are stopping by Pat’s for a cheesesteak, or visiting the Italian market for fresh seafood, everyone seems to come for the food. Now with mobile food trucks, people can get their fix in a hurry, and spend less money doing so. For business owners, food trucks seem like a practical way to make a profit because overhead cost is lower than opening an actual restaurant and they also produce higher margins.
If 2012 was any indication of how well mobile food trucks will do in the future, than it is clear that business will pick up. According to the 2013 National Household Association survey, 43% of adults said they had purchased food items from a mobile truck.
One of the most popular food trucks available in Philadelphia, is the Tiny Poi Dog at Temple University. This food truck packs a flavorful punch, rolling out lunch on four wheels to everyone in sight!
Those interested in putting their love for food in action can start up a mobile food business. One of the best ways to begin this delicious journey is to contact Executive Auto Salon about customizing a food truck. The company will design a truck that will fit your specific needs and make sure you are equipped for success.
