Careers, Jobs, Small Business Seminars, Starting and Growing Your Business: How To Start Your Own Food Truck!


                                                                                                                                                                               Do you have a great recipe that everyone raves about?  Are you interested in giving up your day job to take on the intrepid life of a food-trucker?  Before you take out a second mortgage to finance your new truck, stop by this session to learn about life on the streets in NYC from the perspective of a street vendor.

David Weber, author of The Food Truck Handbook, gives an overview of what it takes to start your own food truck.

The discussion includes:

  • The rise of Mobile Food
  • Will food trucks endure?
  • What it takes to be a vendor
  • NYC Rules & Regulations
  • Picking a concept
  • Writing a business plan & raising funds
  • Operating best practices

Weber is President of the NYC Food Truck Association, an instructor at the Institute for Culinary Education, and co-founder of Rickshaw Dumplings.
