On the street, some food trucks are crowded, while others have few customers, which is mainly determined by the choice of menu. Your menu plays an important role in your business.
The choice of the menu depends on your environment, one thing is to look at the customer base you are dealing with. If there are more young people, you can choose some trendy food, such as hamburgers, snacks, barbecue and so on. If there are middle-aged, or many parents bringing children, you can choose ice cream, pizza, etc. Change your menu based on customer groups, meal times, changes in foot traffic, etc.
In the end, it depends on your competitors. If multiple people choose the same business at the same time, it means that the competition you face will be very fierce. It can be an unpopular business if no one chooses.

Not every location in your area allows food trucks to operate, and some locations are prohibited, so it’s important to know the local rules ahead of time to avoid fines.
