Those of us in the food truck industry are finding that, with COVID regulations, we are an important asset in allowing brides & grooms to serve guests safely.
There are many things to consider when choosing a food truck for your event. I tripped over this article today, and it brought up some important points. One I found concerning is the issue of whether or not your food truck is insured. In Maine, we must be insured for at least $1M in order to be licensed with the state. I always recommend people request a Certificate of Insurance when hiring a vendor to work your event.
It’s important to note that a food truck at a wedding is not going to set up and break down tables and do many other things a full service caterer might do. The price per person will be MUCH more manageable with a food truck or even multiple food trucks, so you can gauge your needs and desires with your budget when making decisions.
Find a food truck you can really trust. As a former event planner, I always look at things through both my lens as a caterer and also the lens of the person holding the event.
It’s a debate that will probably never cease. Last April, we were plotting and scheming our own little hot dog business, and we had to eat a lot of hot dogs before we found the one we decided was the best tasting dog. It’s also gluten free and all beef, so those were bonuses for us.
Some people just love those red snappers, and others need a mixture of pork and beef. Some like a mild flavor, and others like a little kick. Don’t get us started on the natural casing debate.
According to the NYTimes, Wellshire Farms and Hebrew National are the two best tasting dogs.
Delish agreed with thousands of die-hard NYC hot dog eaters, and chose Sabrett as the top dog.
ThrillList and Epicurious agreed with us, and chose Nathan’s Famous as the best tasting dog out there.
The one thing we can all agree on is this: every day is a little bit tastier with your favorite hot dog (especially one from a food truck!)
The suggestion to partner with family and friends who have skills is brilliant. I have made a number of wedding cakes as gifts for family and friends over the years. Most of us know someone who can DJ, someone else who can make awesome centerpieces, and probably a budding photog or videographer.
Food trucks are all the rage for weddings these days. You can hire us to handle your rehearsal dinner, apps, or after party. We will also gladly handle the wedding meal itself, especially if you are thinking backyard wedding with fun street foods.
