Generally, one food truck can comfortably cover all your service needs. And depending on your cuisine preference, if you wish to have more than one truck, be prepared to meet the minimum fees, usually $800 for lunches and $1000 for evening/dinner service per truck. MFE owners will be able to accommodate most menus if you just ask.
Let's look at an $800 luncheon minimum. If you have 80 people buying a $10 lunch, you will have met the minimum fee. If only 60 people come out and buy the $10 lunch (which would total $600), the requestor would have to pay the difference of $200 to meet the minimum fee for bringing out an MFE.
NO. In fact, if you are trying to plan an event for your company, event or neighborhood, we always recommend directly contacting the food truck owners. It saves both you and the food truck owners from having to pay a 3rd party Food Truck Organizer any additional unnecessary fees.
Would you charge your plumber to come out and fix your leaky sink? No...
Then don't charge your chef for coming out to cook for you.
We already have to pay municipal licensing and permit fees, litter taxes, insurance fees, and we take the risk of preparing foods that you may or may not purchase. More food truck owners are declining to work with event planners and organizers that add an additional fee just to collect extra money for themselves for providing you a service.
Yes. Usually the organizer of an event will have a contract for the food truck owners, but we also have a contract that we require for booking. Please contact Chef directly to discuss the terms.
