3.) You Can Turn Your Food Truck Into A Catering Mobile Kitchen (and travel to awesome events )
Food trucks provide a lot of variety (and streams of income) for the owners. On top of traveling to normal locations on a weekly basis, you can also incorporate catering gigs. Not only will this lead to another stream of income but it will lead to you traveling to awesome events where your food truck steals the show (and gains more customers). Weddings, reunions, festivals, parades, food truck events — no matter where you serve food, everyone will love your meals.
4.) Financial Freedom
This is one of the biggest reasons why people follow their dreams. Yes, passion plays a big role, but there’s something exciting about working at a job that has no cap on how much money you can make. As a food truck owner, that will definitely be the case for you.
5.) To Escape From A Dead-End Job
You might be at a job you love, but if your dream is to become a food truck owner, then you might also be at a dead-end job because it doesn’t lead to you becoming a food truck owner (and there’s no advancement in sight). You won’t escape a dead-end job until you put a plan in place and take action.
The 9-5 has a bad reputation. After all, no one wants to be stuck at a desk doing the same thing five days a week. Well, if you become a food truck owner, you can kiss the 9-5 life goodbye. While food trucks work a lot of hours — a big reason behind that is because they want to — they are typically not stuck in one spot for eight hours a day. They are traveling around town and serving new customers and meeting people they have never met before while making them happy with their food
