How can I get into the food truck business?

The first step to getting started is to do some research and decide what type of food you would like to serve. Once you have determined that you’ll need to find a truck that meets your needs. You can opt for new or used, depending on how much you’d like to spend.  

After finding a truck, you’ll have to obtain the necessary permits and licenses to operate a food truck in your area. Do a quick Google search “food truck permits in (insert city name)”. You may also need to purchase any additional equipment or supplies that you may need to run your business. Finally, you’ll need to create a marketing plan to help promote your business and attract customers.

What’s the difference between licensing and franchising?

Licensing and franchising are two different ways of offering a business opportunity to entrepreneurs. Licensing involves granting someone the right to use a company's brand name, logo, and trademark in exchange for a fee. Franchising, on the other hand, involves the sale of a complete package that includes the brand name, logo, trademark, operations manual, and potentially a support system. With franchising, the franchisee has more autonomy and control over their business, whereas with licensing, the licensee is more reliant on the licensor for support and guidance.
