How to Start a Restaurant and Food Truck Business

Opening a new restaurant can seem daunting at first. There are many different things to consider, from choosing the right location and finding financing, to selecting the right name and buying equipment. This class will help you get started from A to Z and explore the difference between a brick and mortar locations versus a mobile location, like a food truck.

A food truck is like a restaurant on wheels. It has several distinct advantages over a traditional eat-in restaurant. A food truck can go to where the customers are. It has pretty low overhead, compared to a restaurant, and requires far less staff. However, a food truck is still a business that requires a lot of work and attention — especially in the first couple of years.

Discussion will also center on the new phenomena; Pop Ups. A great way to get into the restaurant business.
