Wanted: Person or persons with food-service experience, drive, and ambition to purchase their own food truck.
For the past year, food-truck mania has hit South Florida. What started as a small blip on the food radar of South Florida this past summer has hit critical mass.
More than 40 food trucks are currently rolling in South Florida (mostly in Miami), and at least one new food truck debuts each week. Food-truck roundups can get as many as 10,000 patrons during the course of one night.
With those numbers and the fact that a food truck is easier to purchase than a “brick and mortar” restaurant these days, food trucks are a trend that doesn’t seem in the least bit ready to die off.
Perusing eBay, Clean Plate Charlie found a listing for a company here in Fort Lauderdale that sells food trucks. Low Price Trailers (Miami Trailer) has fully loaded food trucks in stock or will custom-make one to your specificiations. The cost? A new food truck starts at around $40,000 and goes up from there.
Though the competition is getting tight, there’s always room for one more food truck on the road.
