Buying Vs. Renting

Financing Options

The recent food truck boom has established the food truck as a legitimate profitable business. Banks are starting to see the huge opportunities that these mobile restaurants can provide and have started opening their doors to new and existing food truck owners.

That this means for you: The majority of individuals that start food trucks do so with money they have worked very hard for. People save for years on end in the hopes of one day starting their own business and being their own boss, after which these same people spend years trying to recover their initial investment. There is a better way. New financing options by large commercial banks are making it an easier process to obtain start-up capital for your new business. Having more working capital will not only allow you to build out your ideal truck but it will also give you additional funds for operations and a greater peace of mind. The additional capital provided by a bank can be used for things such as booking events, truck upgrades, maintenance, and can eventually allow you to start your second and third food truck.
