If your doing things right in running and growing your food truck business, eventually you will need to hire employees to help out with daily operations. At this point it is tempting to go around asking friends and family for help but in my opinion this is a huge learning experience for new entrepreneurs and is necessary for the success of your food truck.
What will happen is the opportunity cost (cost of doing one aspect of your business instead of another) or yourself working the truck versus say calling potential catering or event client will begin to lean in favor of the later.
Here a few tip and key characteristics of hiring and retaining quality food truck employees.
