Food Truck Series

We are all painfully aware of the impact that COVID-19 has had on many businesses. People have lost their jobs and some sectors are still struggling to recover such as the restaurant industry.

During lockdown Food Focus received many more enquiries from potential business owners considering a mobile food business. We had the opportunity to talk to a new business owner about their experiences in starting such a venture. We will be sharing her insights in our new 5-part Food Truck Series.

In part 1 we will be chatting about Starting right – designing your unit and tackling legal obligations. In part 2 we chat about designing your mobile food unit to be legal and practical. Part 3 talks about your responsibilities as the person in charge. Part 4 is a bonus personal hygiene poster for you to put up in your unit to remind your staff to practice food safety. In part 5 we chat to Joanne about some of the challenges you may face in operating a mobile food business.
