Los Angeles Trade- Technical College

Starting a mobile food business can be fun to run, but it’s no easy task. Some of the most successful owners report 60-hour work weeks. The rewards, however, can be great – from media attention and social media fans that swarm when you arrive, to the satisfaction that you’re providing a decent meal to the hungry.  However, it is still a daunting task figuring out if this is a good business fit.

This Mobiel Retail & Food Truck expo will take the guess work out of how to start this business successfully.  From getting your Truck to licensing, financing, labor, health, marketing, menu development and yes the all important social media and much more.  VSEDC will provide you with practical, current information and resources.  And it is all free!
