    I’m not going to start up a food truck or a brick and mortar restaurant, I just love entrepreneurial related books, and this one happens to be an excellent read. Sometimes books on any one particular subject can run on about specifics, and leave you either lost or bored out of your mind. But this one covers all aspects of what you should and should not do in every subject you’ll want to be up to speed in, if you decide to venture into the highly competitive field of Food. Although I must say tha I’m not going to start up a food truck or a brick and mortar restaurant, I just love entrepreneurial related books, and this one happens to be an excellent read. Sometimes books on any one particular subject can run on about specifics, and leave you either lost or bored out of your mind. But this one covers all aspects of what you should and should not do in every subject you’ll want to be up to speed in, if you decide to venture into the highly competitive field of Food. Although I must say that I am actually assuming it does, since I am not a food expert, I don’t really know if it does in fact cover all aspects of the industry. If it doesn’t, the author sure as hell made it seem like it did. This review is based on my limited knowledge pertaining to the field as a whole, and is a mixture of both speculation and assumption. There… you’ve been warned. One of the greatest things about this book that I found extremely appealing was its vast amount of references and resources to follow up on if you would like more information on any of the many topics the author covers in this book. The entire ass end of this book is comprised of a whole slew of worksheets, checklists, important rules and regulation pertaining to food truck laws for each individual state, and additional interviews. I glanced over all that stuff, since I’m not actually opening my own food business, it wasn’t really relevant or necessary for me to actually look it all over in great detail. But for any of you out there thinking about getting into the food business, or for you experienced Foodies, this book is definitely something you should purchase and keep with you as a go to reference guide in the field.

    My high rating for this book has a lot to do with the fact that this book was EXACTLY what I needed to prepare to launch my own NYC food truck. Easy to follow and enjoyable to read, yet full of plenty of details, great tips and fun interviews with other food truckers. I kept a notebook next to me while I read this and wrote down things like: "test COGS at 30% to set final menu prices," "ask insurance broker if there are fees for additional insured (there shouldn't be!)," "sign up for free Google My high rating for this book has a lot to do with the fact that this book was EXACTLY what I needed to prepare to launch my own NYC food truck.

Really practical advice. My only complaint is that this book wasn't around three years ago when I started planning the food truck business. Of course if it had, it might have scared me off! Weber doesn't sugarcoat things, but he also makes sure to highlight the joys of street vending too. I feel so much more prepared after reading this handbook.

    "Food is one of the most universal experiences, and cooking is a near universal skill." I bought this for my husband, but when it sat on his nightstand for a few months I just read it myself. It's very formative and full of amazing information for any business person looking to branch out into thee food truck industry.

    I bought this book for reference for my dissertation at university and it's such a clever, easy to read little book! Full of facts etc if you're wanting to learn about the food truck industry or just interested about it!

    A concise and thorough guide for any budding food truck owner. Not planning on opening one soon but it's fascinating to see the planning, logistics and potential pitfalls of running a mobile food business. Definitely gives you an appreciation for the untold hours behind every food vendor. The appendix of templates would be useful for anyone seriously looking at starting their own food truck - and possibly deterring anyone who hasn't realised how organised and committed you need to be.

    If your thinking to start a food truck business or in the process of starting this book is for you, very informative contains a lot of practical ideas, and plenty of resources probably took the author years to gain this knowledge. If your serious about your food truck business buy it and read it. Put game of thrones on hold for now :)

    A how-to guide that is practical and inspiring. It's also challenging with plenty of reasons NOT to get into the food truck business. The author is president of a food-truck advocacy group and wants to encourage business owners to use high-standards and honesty. Includes lots of interviews with food truck owners.

    The best book I've read about starting a food truck business. Even though it's new, it already needs more social media information and how to integrate gps tracking for customers. Of course, I'm a techie.
