Starting a Phoenix business? How about a food truck!

Phoenix Food Truck FestivalFood trucks are still a hot commodity on the Phoenix streets, so much so that attendees at a small business-focused speaker panel were urged to start their own mobile eatery this week. (See coverage of the event in Downtown Devil.)

We’ve got at least 32 Phoenix metro food trucks (which are all members of the Phoenix Street Food Coalition) that roam the city alone and in packs, setting up opportunities for a moveable feast wherever they travel.

Some of the types of food they feature include: burgers, tacos, fry bread, coffee, hot dogs, popsicles, Filipino food, burritos, bowls (rice/veggies, fruit/yogurt), falafels, pizza, cheesesteaks, BBQ, ribs, yogurt, cupcakes, dessert.

So you can see there’s still plenty of room for other ethnic and regional specialties on the Phoenix food truck market. If you’ve got a homemade dish that everyone raves about whenever you make it, and you think that might translate to mass market appeal, this could be worth a go!

Phoenix’ support for the food truck community includes welcoming them at regular gatherings and festivals, like the recent Street Eats, and they have good traction both among transient residents (I mean ASU students, not homeless people) and permanent ones (IE farmer’s market shopping yuppies).

So what are you waiting for? Be your own boss, get cooking and best of all, start thinking of a great artsy design for the outside of your truck, cause we’re more inclined to eat there if we think your logo is as bomb as your food.
