  • SALES ESTIMATEHow many people can you feed every 10 minutes?

    - What is your max serve speed?

    - How popular are your offerings?

    Example: 1 customer/ 2 minutes = 5 customers/ 10 minutes = 30 customers every hour

  • HOW MUCH CAN YOU CHARGE?100 meals @ $5.50/ meal = $55030 meals @ $12.00/ meal = $270

    Higher prices can make profitability easier as they better cover some costs (e.g., food, labor), but food trucks may have difficulty getting many customers to pay higher prices.

  • ECONOMICS: SALES ESTIMATE

    35 minutes for 22 cust, ave ticket $12.00

  • ECONOMICS: SALES ESTIMATE

    Est. 150 meals/ day (30,000 meals Oct Jul)

  • ANNUAL SALES ESTIMATESKogi $380,000/ year/ truckMomogoose MIT $220,000/ yearCA taco truck $56,000/ yearThese are based on Ayrs estimates. For Kogi I read an article where they gave their annual sales number and number of trucks. This number might be high if not all of those trucks were on the road all year. For Momogoose they state on their website 20,000 meals served in three months (across six locations), estimates are based on these number.

  • HOW THINGS CAN GO WELLOther avenues for revenue generation (e.g. catering)Very low food costs and labor (e.g., taco truck on W. coast)High utilization and high prices (e.g., Sweets truck NYC)Owner/operator, doesnt need to make much money (long hours, but low labor costs, e.g. falafel cart)Operate in city that doesnt require much (e.g., no GPS, low license fees, low commissary fees, lower cost of truck, etc.)
