Join the Food Truck Scene!
Food trucks are quickly replacing the traditional brick and mortar restaurant as the choice for new entrepreneurs getting into the business. It's easy to see why: the start-up costs are often lower, and most importantly, food trucks allow the restauranteur to come to the customers, rather than relying on a single, static location that's largely dependent on its convenience for patrons. Food trucks also allow a complete change of venue - a move to another state or across the country - for owners who may not have permanent roots where they currently live.
