Have trolled around here for quite a while and right now I am the most serious about opening a food truck. Of course I have 1000 questions but I do know how to use google
So don't worry I am not asking people to spoon feed me all the answers
I am researching trucks, decided on a stand in truck instead of a food truck where you stand outside of it. .
I have found a limited partner I can trust, as I will not be leaving my full time job. I will stop working my extra hours (ot) that is not mandatory and instead spend even more hours dealing with all the details of a truck.
I have been researching locations and have 3 that we are seriously looking at.
I have a church with a board of health certified kitchen that is willing to act as a commissary.
All of those things have been going on and now trying to really look at the menu. This is where I am looking for some opinions........
When we first sat down to look at what we wanted and actually wrote it down it was WAY to big. No way we are going to be able to serve that amount of menu items.
Started cutting stuff out and at the moment this is what I have come up with. NOT a finished product by any means. Right now I am just looking for unbiased opinions.
We will be serving breakfast but I am only looking at the lunch/dinner menu right now.
oh yea we will be having a baseball theme for the truck.
Sliders (thought about full sized burgers but right now thinking sliders)
hot dogs (both regular and either 1/4 or sausage/kiebasa
then as hot sides we are thinking
That is it for hot food. Of course there will be cold sides chips peanuts crackerjacks (remember baseball theme) soda coffee juice.
So here are my thoughts
I am thinking with a baseball theme we cannot get around having dogs and some kind of burgers (sliders)
I really want wings. So I am thinking those will be our 3 main staples. That is what we can be known for.
The meatball subs, I am not sold on having this. The reason I am thinking it is because I will buy them frozen (very little prep) stays in steam table so it will not take up much space either.
Is it worth having them or should I just say no and leave it off the menu and then IF people request it enough I can add it?
Chili-- Same thing as meatball. Does not take much space. Would only have one pot of it. Would not be a staple, so should I bother with it? It would be good but not a priority?
The sides, the only one I am unsure about is the potato skins. Lots of things you can do to dress them up so thats good. Should not take up too much space and I don't beleive they are labor intensive.
Fries, onion rings, moz sticks should be staples as sides I think
thoughts anyone????? To many items? To few? To labor intensive?
