India's food and beverages (F&B) industry is now becoming more diverse and offering consumers new, innovative ways to satiate their love for food. Food trucks are fulfilling the needs of modern Indian consumers by bringing lip-smacking global cuisines to them. One can easily spot a food truck at any popular spot in their city.
With extensive research, potential locations have to be found where the vehicle can be parked. The biggest advantage is that the business is mobile and vendors can switch between potential locations during the prime hours.
Now, the question arises what type of truck will be suitable, how much amount of money and funding is required, commitment for setting up the business?
Food trucks require sophisticated food equipment for preparing, storing and serving food.
The food trucks are customised commercial vehicles which come in different sizes. A customised food truck’s cost might vary between Rs 5 lakh to 12 lakh depending on its size and type. A standard new truck costs somewhere between Rs 6 lakh to Rs 8 lakh, which are customised according to the client’s need. Entrepreneurs often opt for pre-owned vehicles which costs much lesser than a new truck.
The model could vary from Tata Ace, Tata 407, Tempo Traveler, Eicher 1110 or even an e-rickshaw. Food truck companies convert a commercial vehicle into a custom made food truck. The original vehicle are designed and modified into a mobile restaurant which includes, cooking equipment, refrigeration, lighting, air conditioning, installation of power sources like generator and inverter.
There are many ancillary companies in India which can help in setting up the food truck business. One such company is Amigo’s Food Truck which customises the vehicle given by client according to their needs. The interior is converted into a kitchen while exterior is made attractive with graphics.
The truck must be equipped with a proper water management system which includes- water tanks, sinks, water heater and purifier, and a drainage system.
However, the 10-year ban on diesel vehicles is an issue of concern for the food truck entrepreneurs who opt for a used truck.
