The food is fan­tas­tic. The main rea­son you will fall in love with the food truck scene is an easy one—the food is de­li­cious. From a fusion break­fast to a gourmet burger lunch and deca­dent desserts, food truck own­ers pre­pare some in­cred­i­bly tasty foods.

Eat­ing from a food truck is fun for the en­tire fam­ily. Par­ents know how frus­trat­ing it can be to try to find a restau­rant to fit ev­ery­one’s tastes—but many food trucks of­fer a va­ri­ety of op­tions to go with the novel din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence that will ap­pease the whole fam­ily! In par­tic­u­lar, fes­ti­vals host­ing a num­ber of food trucks are a great way to en­joy a day or night out.

Mo­bile cui­sine is af­ford­able. Many of the items served from a food truck would carry hefty price tags in a fancy restau­rant. Yet most food truck menus top out around the $15 mark for a full meal, de­spite the fact they of­ten of­fer unique, high-qual­ity in­gre­di­ents hard to come by in a tra­di­tional fast-food at­mos­phere.

Freshly up­dated menus. Food trucks have the abil­ity to change their menus when in­spi­ra­tion hits. It is fun to know that new menu items are likely to pop up fre­quently. Some food trucks even change their menus daily.

Face-to-face in­ter­ac­tion with the chef. Many food trucks are owned and driven by the chef. It’s a nice ex­pe­ri­ence to be handed your food by the per­son who pre­pared it.

Get an easy in­tro­duc­tion to new foods. Food trucks pro­vide a way to ven­ture away from your go-to foods and be more ad­ven­tur­ous by try­ing new dishes. And you won’t have the worry of an “ex­pen­sive risk,” which can some­times oc­cur when pick­ing a new restau­rant.

Food trucks help make dreams come true. Many en­trepreneurs use the food truck busi­ness to en­ter the restau­rant in­dus­try, or like Non­nie’s, they get to work together as a fam­ily. Many end up hav­ing spinoff brick-and-mor­tar op­er­a­tions. And even es­tab­lished restau­rants are launch­ing their own food trucks as a rev­enue-gen­er­at­ing ex­ten­sion of their busi­ness.
