Starting a Food Truck – ROAM Conference Boot Camp

Food Carts Portland

So you want to open up a food truck or cart? Good for you!

There’s so many items that go into opening a mobile food business: finding and buying a unit, customizing it, permits and fees, menu and concept development, food production, staffing, pricing, marketing, accounting…the list goes on and on.

Roam Conference will feature both a special half day Start-Up Bootcamp for those interested in starting a mobile food business, but will also feature key education tracks including a business 101 track. The chance to meet with experts, network for peer support, and Roam’s education could mean the difference between making expensive mistakes on your own, or a smooth launch and ongoing success.

One thing all aspiring mobile vendors should check out is this excellent article looking at the economics of running a food truck. A Day in the Life of a Food Truck.

There’s also this great video showing a day in the life of a mobile vendor in Ohio:
