Food Business experts and many experienced food bloggers in India seem to suggest that a food truck if run well, can earn up to Rs. 60,00 per day. I am very tempted to quit my job now! (Just Kidding). Running food trucks in Delhi/NCR shouldn’t be a hard task since the city and its people are very fond of the food and various flavors the city has to offer. Being a Delhiite you have to try out the wide range of food options with varying cultures the city can provide. Otherwise are you really a Delhiite?
Food trucks have a big appeal in the city and many of these have mouth-watering delicacies hard to find elsewhere.
However much Delhiites love their food it’s not as easy as it looks to run, maintain and keep up with compliances to run food trucks in Delhi/NCR. Food Truckers are subject to many obstacles in running their venture. They get troubled a lot by licensing issues among many other legalities. In addition to this, there are no set guidelines or rules for these mobile food outlets. Add on top of that the fact Delhi among many other cities does not have a mobility friendly approach makes it very tough to run this business model.
However, a ray of hope is the soaring taxes and the demand for specific, novel and intricate delicacies among citizens has empowered many aspiring food truckers to go ahead and start delivering finger licking delicacies to customers with a rich palette. Food trucks are also being hailed as the ‘new incubators for the food business’. Many food bloggers have argued that if single dish innovations, as well as international cuisine, will expose customers to a different social experience which becomes a great selling point for food trucks.
Oh, and before we begin, nothing is more important than your health make sure that any Food trucks you visit should have safe and hygienic preparation conditions and are also clearly displaying something called a FSSAI license. This license ensures the safety of the food items you are going to go to town on!
