Have you been wanting to expand your restaurant, but aren’t convinced that you want to open another brick and mortar shop? Have you thought about the idea of using a food truck as a way of expanding your restaurant? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, then MBB Management may be the perfect company to help you. We are going to teach you how food truck expansion can help you grow your restaurant in 2023.
Why Get a Food Truck?
Food trucks are trendy and unique. They offer quick service and a fun atmosphere. They can be taken almost anywhere and are great for gatherings of all types. Food trucks are a great way to try new types of food and an even better way to make friends! There are always new and exciting people visiting food trucks, which make them perfect for trying a new meal with friends or family. You can add food truck expansion to your physical restaurant to reach new customers. You can offer a simplified version of your menu for new customers to try. When they realize how delicious your food is, they will be sure to want to visit your other locations.
Food trucks aren’t only trendy, but they are practical as well. The overhead costs are less than having a physical restaurant location. You have more options with location and can set up shop wherever is permitted. Food trucks can have simple or complex menus and have plenty of interior room for cooking. Since your customers practically take care of themselves, cleaning up is a breeze. No more late nights cleaning tables and silverware.
Rent or Buy A Food Truck
Buying a food truck right off the bat is a big commitment, they are expensive and not always something that people want to invest in if they are not 100 perfect certain. To begin your journey into the mobile restaurant experience you may want to find a food truck for rent. Renting a food truck is a great way to experience what it would be like to have one full-time. Maybe you don’t want to own a food truck at all, and renting just sounds like the best option for you. Whichever reason you have for wanting to rent a food truck, it is a good one. Renting a food truck will give you experience and exposure.
You can rent a food truck for a fraction of the price that it would cost you to buy one. If you are interested in renting a food truck, MBB Management would love to talk to you today about your options. We have the perfect food trucks for rent that allow you to market and advertise yourself.
Using A Food Truck For Marketing
The best exposure comes from mobile billboard trucks. These rentable food trucks offer digital billboards on the perimeter of the truck. They can play audio, video, display photos, and allow you to advertise your restaurant. Whether you want to display your specials or other restaurant locations is up to you. You have complete creative control of what you display on your food truck rental.
Driving around with your restaurant logo helps increase your brand awareness and lets customers get a glimpse of what you have to offer. Take your food truck rental anywhere that you feel that you will catch the attention of your target audience. Take your food truck to sporting events, music festivals, college campuses, and much more. Play music to gather a crowd or let the sound of nature’s ambiance lead the way.
You can also park your food truck in front of your restaurant. Having a food truck in front of your restaurant creates a buzz in the atmosphere, people will be curious and visit the location. You can offer a simplified version of your menu or offer free samples. When you allow customers to try a free sample of your delicious cuisine they will surely want to go into the restaurant and order the full meal!
Use A Food Truck To Try New Menu Items
Maybe you want to expand your menu but aren’t ready to add the items to your permanent restaurant location. You can use your food truck as a way to add new menu items without having to have them in your restaurant. Test the items with customers using your food truck location. If the menu items are a hit amongst customers, you will know that they may be something you want to add to all locations. If they flop, no big deal, simply revise the menu and try something else! Adding new menu items permanently to a restaurant takes a lot of training and organizing to make room for the new items. Having a glimpse to see if they are worth the trouble is a great way to know if it will be a good addition.
Use The Food Truck For Catering Events
When people love a restaurant, they often want that restaurant to cater for their large events. Weddings, birthday parties, baby showers, and more all need to be catered. If you offer catering services out of your food truck you can allow your customers to customize their experience. You can give them options of which menu items they want to be served at their event and bring it directly to their event. Catering is a big business and can allow you to expand your market to new customers who wouldn’t have known about your restaurant before the event.
