Food trucks are the hottest thing right now and not showing any sign of slowing down. If you’ve been thinking about starting your own mobile food business, now is the time.
There’s a lot of specialty equipment you need to outfit your food truck, but there are a lot of standard pieces of equipment you’ll need. You can buy them new or used.
You’ll want to consider equipment that is made for a mobile food unit like: Undercounter refrigerator, griddles, microwaves, ranges, ventilation, fryers, washing stations, fridges and freezers, food warmers https://swrestaurantequipment.com/equipment-supplies/concession-foodwarmers.html, prep tables, and any specialty pieces needed to run your business (i.e.: panini press https://swrestaurantequipment.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=+Panini+grill, coffee brewers https://swrestaurantequipment.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=coffee+brewers, pizza ovens, etc.).
