Vintage Food Trucks


The popularity and prevalence of these vintage rolling restaurants have been increasing at a rapid pace in the past couple of years. Why have so many entrepreneurs chosen to invest in a vintage mobile catering unit? The answer is simple and remains in 3 factors:


    Create attention and perception

    You could have the best product and service on the market but if your customer judges the packaging before trying the product, you will not stand the competition of others with a complete concept. A quality vintage truck that looks the money invested will attract both attention and positive perception.

    Build Audience

    With vintage food trucks, sometimes their personalities are their selling point. Being able to draw customers in, forming relationships and getting repeat business is a turnkey event. Not many other industries benefit from direct interaction with their audience but with this mobile unit you can, so make the most of it to create your success.

    Have a unique point of Sale

    The food industry is fiercely competitive and by choosing a vintage truck you create a unique point of sale. You plan your business carefully in terms of product and service but do not forget the packaging of your new business. It is what will make the concept complete.
