Food truck business

Food trucks are everywhere. Have you considered launching a food truck business? A food truck business is hot. So hot that even Martha Stewart invites one food truck business to drive into the service elevator of her Omnimedia’s West 26th street headquarters to provide a delicious lunch to her staff each day.

If you see a food truck business parked in various locations in your community, and dream of your establishing your own “Wheels of Fortune” enterprise, follow the lead of successful food truck business Flirty Cupcakes.

Tiffany Kurtz Runs a Food Truck Business

Flirty Cupcakes is a mobile cupcake/dessert provider that started out as a mobile cupcake truck and expanded to a dessert garage, delivery service, & wholesale provider. “Our mission is to ensure when a woman wants a Flirty Cupcake or other dessert item she gets it!,” said food truck business owner Tiffany Kurtz.

The food truck business provides cupcakes and other dessert items: home made pop tarts, ice cream, cookies, brownies, cake pops. Sales for the business are now hitting $490,000.

One of the first things food truck business owner Tiffany Kurta had to do was obtain a truck and arrange for a kitchen. “Initially, I thought about partnering with an existing bakery, but I realized I really wanted to offer a high quality gourmet product, especially since it was coming out of a truck. I thought we had to offer something really amazing and that was better than anyone else, especially since it was out of a truck; that we had to be a notch above everyone else, just to overcome the truck.”  You can learn more about this food truck business by visiting their website flirtycupcakes.com for more info.

In launching your own food truck business you’ll need to contact the county clerk in your area to determine whether or not you need a Food Handler’s License. The licensing is regulated by the State and varies from one state to another. Often obtaining one is as simple as taking a multiple choice test. Some states require a kitchen inspection for any food truck business.
