I want to start a food truck business, where do I start?

A:
Research, research, research. Running a Food Truck for Dummies by Richard Myrick is a great resource.  The most important thing you can do is gather information.  Start with the “where.”  Where will you operate your business?   New York? Los Angeles County?  What cities?  Do those cities/counties permit trucks?  Do you plan on renting or buying?  Call around to different commissaries, truck manufacturers and truck rental companies to get quotes and information.  

How much does it cost to start a truck?
Every food truck business is different, so it’s important that you get quotes from every truck manufacturer/renter, commissary and truck wrapping (the design on the outside) place you can find.  Remember, regional regulations and permits can dramatically impact the cost of running a truck.  Call your local city hall and find out about your regional regulatory framework.
