Tips For Business Success From The Top Food Truck Entrepreneur
Everyone wants overnight success.
As a result, people, no matter what industry we are talking about, browse the internet for secret tips for crushing their job/profession/industry. While we aren’t saying you shouldn’t do things like that — because it is actually very motivating and inspiring to see other people’s process — we are saying this: If you want something bad enough, then you have to work for it.
The food truck industry is no exception.
If you want to become a successful mobile kitchen owner, then you have to do the research before you even enter the industry, and you have to continue learning/doing research long after you have become a food truck owner. You have to stay hungry, determined and focused. Unfortunately, there are so many folks who do own food trailers who don’t do those things, and that is why they fail.
If you don’t believe us, then just take it from the founder of Prestige Food Trucks, Jeremy Adams.
Here’s what Adams had to say about succeeding in the food truck industry:
“I have succeeded in the food truck industry by being persistent, tenacious. I really wish there was a better formula I could give entrepreneurs who are seeking a career in the food truck industry, but that’s really what it boils down to. If you want something bad enough, then you have to become so obsessed with achieving that goal that it becomes your entire life. From food truck owner to food truck manufacturer, I have always put my work and goals first. People search the internet for a magical ingredient that will lead to success, but it all comes down to this: If you want something bad enough — if you really, really want it — then you will work for it. You will learn, ask questions, surround yourself with success, hustle and always try to move closer to whatever it is you are trying to accomplish.”
Adams is 100 percent correct. People can wish for success all they want, but said success won’t come into reality unless they are willing to work for it.
Being a food truck owner is a dream come true for so many different people … but that does not mean it is an easy career. Not only will you have to be an expert in the cooking department (and make great menus) but you will also have to be a customer service guru, business savvy, solid at social media and marketing, a good boss/manager and the list could go on and on.
If you have made it this far, though, then do not give up. You have already endured a lot of pain, if you will, and you have already risked quite a bit (like money and time on your food truck business). Day by day, keep moving forward, continue to learn about the industry (and your competition) and be willing to work hard for your goals/dreams.
If you are looking for a magical tip to achieve overnight success, then you are likely going to be left hanging every single time; however, if you follow the advice that Adams gave, then you will definitely be traveling along the right path.
