3 Reasons why 2018 is the year to start your own food trailer business!

With the New Year upon us, here are 3 reasons why 2018 is the year to finally take the leap and start your own food trailer business!


1.  Be your own boss

It seems pretty obvious but the benefits of being your own boss really are priceless. Structuring your own schedule to fit your family and lifestyle needs can be more enticing to some than any financial reward a 9-5 can offer.

With a food trailer you are able to make every single decision yourself. Whether it be where you want to work? When you want to work? What food or drink you want to serve? The options are endless and your days of answering to someone else will be over!


2.  Experience is not needed

Unlike most other industries, ‘going it alone’ should not be fraught with peril and unknowns. Setting up a catering business really doesn’t take much or any experience at all.

A few key skills are all that are needed, such as doing the adequate research before any investment is made. Being great with people and knowing how to create a strong brand presence. If you can tick these things off you are already on the right path to being a successful catering vendor.


3.  The industry is growing big and fast!

There is a reason why 2018 really is the year to move into the food trailer/vehicle industry. As of 2017 it was the fastest growing catering sector in the UK and it shows no signs of slowing down.

There are more outdoor events, festivals, fairs and other places to show off your food trailer than ever before.Not to mention all the unique street food hot spots sprouting up all over the major cities in the UK.


These are just some of the brilliant reasons why it is time to make the move in to the food trailer industry. With the busiest summer yet just around the corner, this is the perfect time to start making your plans for the future now.
