So, you want to hire a food truck for your event, festival, business party, or birthday? Are you going to organise a large wedding soon and you're still looking for an original addition to catering? Are you part of the party planning committee of the annual neighbourhood barbecue and would you like to do something extra this year? Or is it your birthday in a few weeks and would you like to surprise the invited family and friends with something special? Why don't you book a food truck to serve at the party or event that you are going to organise?
It is quite possible that you have come across the term food truck somewhere in recent years, because it is a concept whose popularity has grown enormously in a short time. However, if you do not yet have a very clear idea of what a food truck is exactly: it is a mobile vehicle that is equipped to prepare and sell food. The type of food that is sold can vary enormously, from simple snacks and warmed up frozen foods to organic trucks and entire kitchens that work with fresh produce. Classic examples of a food truck are ice cream trucks and ones that sell hot chips to passerbys.
In recent years, the gourmet food truck, with gourmet dishes and a variety of specialities and ethnic menus, has become particularly popular. This trend goes hand in hand with the growing popularity of so-called street food. Consider, for example, trucks from confectioners and food trucks from well-known restaurants that will be at festivals.
You can also book a food truck for your own party or event and any type of occasion for that matter. From birthdays and neighbourhood parties to festivals and corporate events, a food truck can be a tasty and original addition to the event in question. For example, can you imagine how nice it would be to book a mobile cotton candy truck for your eleven-year-old son's birthday for a few hours? Or how about booking a food truck that prepares local delicacies during the annual office party at which colleagues from other countries will also be present?

Furthermore, we will delve deeper into the history of the food truck and list a few factors to watch out for when booking a food truck below.
A piece of history of the food truck
The phenomenon of the food truck as we know it originated in the United States around the end of the nineteenth century. From the forties and fifties of the twentieth century, the food truck really started to become a permanent part of the American street scene. You could often find them at construction sites, factories, and other locations where there were many workers.
The growing popularity of the food truck in the UK in recent years is explained as a combination of (crisis-related) factors. The economic crises of recent years have made more people think about their spending on food, and improving technology is constantly creating new opportunities for mobile business models. This has led to an enormous variety of food trucks, with the result of gourmet food trucks becoming a frenzy today. These gourmet trucks often focus on limited but creative dishes at reasonable prices and offer customers the chance to experience food that they might not otherwise have. With our help you can now easily offer your guests a food experience they will remember.
Some things to look out for when booking a food truck
Booking a food truck is not difficult in itself, especially not with the help of an experienced company such as Evenses. However, that does not mean that there aren't things to look out for when searching for a food truck. For clarity, we will briefly list some of these factors below to help you on your way in selecting a food truck.
This may sound logical, but it would surprise you how many people want to book a food truck, but ultimately do not have enough space to park the vehicle. So always bear in mind that it must be possible to park a food truck somewhere and that the space required may differ per vehicle.
Depending on the type of food truck that you want to book, the vehicle may need a connection to the electrical network. It may be that this is necessary and that the food truck in question, for example, works with a generator, but it is important that you know and discuss this before making a booking.
Be sure to take the time to study the menu of the food trucks that you think are good choices and, if possible, try them out before reserving the truck to feed all of your guests at an event. This way you at least know what you'll get at your party or event, and will not be faced with any unpleasant surprises at the very last moment.
At Evenses, we only work with food trucks that has all the required and necessary paperwork, from permits to insurance, completely in order. However, it never hurts to ask yourself about this before you book a food truck and to double-check you are reserving a credible one.
