Should You Buy That Food Truck?
QUESTION From Mike in CT:
“I’m thinking about buying a food truck for $30k. I have a restaurant and it’s doing pretty well. My main concern is that the food truck may start dragging an otherwise good business down into the red. Not sure if I will be able to justify the additional operating expenses and labor. I’ve run the numbers and know what I need to do to break even which would be fine because I feel like it would drive more business to my restaurant but I would like to make money out of this thing instead of it just being an expensive mobile billboard.
Have you done trucks before and if so what would you recommend as far as how to really weigh the pros and cons to make sure I’m considering all the angles as a total truck rookie?”
