Lining up food trucks for a 400 person event
We are considering hiring food trucks for an outdoor event that attracts 400+ people each year. Traditionally we hire a caterer but we want to try something new and more interesting for the food next year...so a bunch of food trucks would be really cool. I'm so excited about the growth of great food trucks.
So how does it work for a party like this? Would we pay the trucks up front? Ask the guests to pay for their own food? Something in between? Do I line up the individual trucks? Or go through a service? How many trucks should I get?
I've looked at a couple of services that will book the trucks for a party, but it seems like their offering would be limited; not offering the universe of possibilities.
The event is in Chester County - September 2014. Crowd is pretty affluent, all ages, lots of families.
Thanks for any advice,
good job everyone reading the post so far.
i think you generally will pay the truck up front and then they will serve until they are out. the trucks will know, given how many trucks you have, how much they need to bring and charge. That said, it will be tough to coordinate because you'll need to line up a bunch of trucks before you can commit to any of them. But i would definitely contact them directly.
