What do ya' think of my food truck concept and vinyl wrap? Thu, 01/26/12 1:22 PM (permalink)
   (Fingers crossed I inserted the pic correctly this time.) There's still some tweaking to be done but this is the proof the wrap company and I came up with. I found her in Vegas through Craigslist and drove her non-heat (at the time) having butt to Durango back in November and nearly froze to death in a Flagstaff snowstorm. Since then, she's been in reconstruction phase: new wiring, minor mechanical issues, refrigeration work, etc. Fortunately, I found a busy location where I can plug into shore power and not have to bother with a generator and I plan to be up and running by mid-March.
   The draw is the $5 daily special: spaghetti, soup and sammie, etc., but the a la carte menu will be the bulk of my business. My mascot is "Bucky", a buck-toothed deer (buck) that I plan to use in all my marketing. My personal Hamburglar, if you will.  http://s1172.photobucket....7c03275ab8_5_Proof.jpg

    Looks cool. Where are you buying your wrap? Since you are not wrapping the whole truck and just select areas,  you can use Signazon.com to make and order you vinyl.

      Thanks, Reese. I'm using FastSigns and they are charging me about $1600. Is that reasonable? They're also going to wrap the back, front, and driver's side, though they've yet to finish with those mock-ups.

        The truck was already OK..... but you have to make more enticing look to grab your target customer attention. I think you have to do something with colours and design.

          I like the wrap, but I would suggest having your actual facebook and twitter accounts shown on the truck wrap instead of just the logos.
           
          I see the QR code, and the website address which are both good, but Twitter and Facebook will be the big boys in your social media marketing. Make sure you make it simple for your customers to find you.
