The latest catering trend incorporates one of the fastest-growing restaurant businesses: food trucks! Having a food truck is a fun and creative idea, and definitely non-traditional!
What do people remember most about a wedding? THE FOOD? Let’s face it- you’re throwing a huge elaborate party to celebrate the beginning of the rest of your lives together, and, as a host and hostess, you want to make sure your guests are happily fed. Now, one of the hottest trends right now is having a food truck do the catering. A perfect choice for the hip couple that is planning a budget-friendly and non-traditional wedding with lots of personal touches.
Five things to consider:
Does your venue allow parking that is just outside?
You’ll want to make sure there’s ample space for the truck and guests to gather around it, as well as a table to set up utensils and condiments. And depending on the truck, an electrical hook-up might be required.
You love the idea but do not know how to begin to look for qualified food trucks?
Many cities will have a website where you can search for food trucks and even track down their current location (here in the Bay Area, it’s Frisky Food Trucks). How do we schedule a tasting? Well, chances are that you might have to follow various trucks on twitter and chase them down.
Can’t choose just one type of food to serve?
If you live in the Bay Area, having multiple food trucks is an option! Off The Grid Catering and Moveable Feast will bring multiple food trucks to serve at your wedding. OTG even has packages for you to choose from, ranging from Basic Meal to the Ultimate Feast with Frills. And Moveable Feast has over 100 trucks in their contract, so they will deliver (pun intended).
Don’t want a food truck serving dinner but still love the idea?
Hire one for a midnight snack! Every partier guest loves a late-night snack after working up a sweat on the dance floor! And you can have fun with this one: have pizza or ice cream!
Want to incorporate alcohol with a food truck?
You can hire Roadsoda to serve drinks! Having Mexican food? Book the Rastarita truck for Margaritas!
