3 Reasons Why Food Trucks are Trending in the Office

Food trucks are thriving in the business industry for other reasons than just their delicious food! Having a food truck at your workplace is convenient and functional compared to traditional catering services. Below we have created three reasons why your next work event should include a food truck.

  1. Fresher Food

Food trucks are able to provide the freshest food possible because they are on wheels. If they need something for their menu, they can easily drive themselves to the store to get the ingredients. Your employees will be happy you took the time to schedule our Lake Nona food trucks for your corporate event because of our fresh food options!

  1. Can Easily Accommodate for Food Allergies

Ensuring your employee’s food allergies are communicated effectively to catering services is important to ensure their health and safety! Food trucks allow easy communication between the customer and the cook to ensure all food allergies are known before consumption.

  1. No Kitchen? No Problem!

Food Trucks are great for the workplace if your office does not have a kitchen area for your employees. This is ideal because it allows your employees to eat delicious food without having to worry about the clean-up process.

Food trucks offer a wide variety of benefits for your corporate events. If you are considering catering for your next office event, look to Orlando Food Truck Catering! Contact us today at (407) 961-7782 to learn more about our cuisine catering options.

Introducing the Poutine Truck to Central Florida!

We’re going to start introducing your to our incredible food trucks in our Orlando Food Truck Catering family, The Poutine Truck!  

Owners Shaun Lacroix, and his wife Sherron Coletti, after braving all the snowy winters in the great white north, they always dreamed about owning a food truck somewhere down south.  Sherron on sharing their dream, “the dream was mostly for our retirement years, but it’s a good thing we didn’t wait, it’s a lot of work!”

After some family transitions, Shaun and Sherron decided to bring their plans forward by a few decades.  With their family by their sides, they embarked on a journey to Florida!  After getting set up, they decided to make it a family affair!  Shaun handles all mechanical and equipment as well as manning the kitchen as a fantastic chef.  While even Sherron’s Mom helping with prep and bookkeeping!

Central Florida has so many incredible food trucks, but none of them do specifically poutine (pronounced puts-in) until Sherron and Shaun arrived!  Poutine is a Canadian delicacy that is fresh French Fries, curd cheese and topped with brown gravy.  (Disco fries are similar from New England area if you’re familiar)  Everything is made fresh daily, gravy, French fries, even the cheese is shipped in weekly and has a small shelf life to make sure that plate is a wonderful little gift that every guest gets to enjoy.  They are always staying on top of the game with new and innovative ideas for poutine and will have a rotating poutine weekly.

“We are huge foodies and lovers of Pinterest, which keeps the ideas flowing. We are excited to be open for business and it’s really giving us a chance to get to know the Central Florida area and meet new people.”

 

Practical Approach To Wedding Catering With A Food Truck

The food that is served on your big day is such an intricate part of your big day, that some say it could make or break the whole celebration.  We’ve already talked about how you can have fantastic food set up at any location, for cocktail hour, dinner or dessert, or even brunch the following morning for your close family and friends the next morning, let Orlando Food Truck Catering handle it all for you!

Let’s talk about the logistics of having one a fabulous food truck (or trucks!) at your central Florida wedding.  Like any kind of wedding planning, the sooner you contact us with your date, the more options you have for securing your first choice truck(s) and you can start on planning the perfect menu for your day.  At least six months out is ideal, as that leave plenty of time to finalize the details of the contract, place the deposit and make sure all of the ducks are in a row.  We can certainly move faster, but, the further out the more likely we’ll be able to dazzle you with every detail playing out exactly as you dreamed.

Next, we’ll start working on the logistics of the evening.  Timing at a wedding is everything, especially in central Florida, so we make it our duty to assure that the truck is arrived and set up in a manner that it’s ready when you are and your meal is served promptly.  There’s a very important timeline that is your wedding that coordinates with set up and prep for the food truck.  Depending upon the time of service and they style of food, they will arrive at least two hours before the time of service to make sure nothing is interrupted, and your celebration has hot wonderful dishes that compliment your fantastic day.

The other variable that dictates set up time is the style of service that you and your partner choose.  Window service from the truck will obviously take less time than setting up than something that is served buffet style (whether it be inside or outside).  No matter any of the choices you make in your celebration, Orlando Food Truck Catering can ensure that everything about your food service is timely and fantastic for your celebration! Sometimes we need one truck to complete service, for larger weddings we’ve had as many as five trucks, this being for a wedding of 400. So while doing your planning wipe the sweat from your brow and say, I’m glad my guest count is whatever your number as long as it’s less than 400 :).

It’s been scientifically proven, fine, no it hasn’t, but, tons of people have told us grand openings are better with food trucks in Central Florida than without. Opening any new business, community, or facility can be as stressful as it is exciting.  Your grand opening is an incredibly important event that shows your neighbors and peers your incredible new accomplishment.  Your grand opening should be a showcase of all of your hard work and dedication, but oftentimes with the amount of groundwork that it takes to plan this event, things slip through the cracks.  Between all of the invitations, press releases, social media management, let Orlando Food Truck Catering handle the food and the entertainment and let you worry about more important things.

Your grand opening allows you to connect with peers and potential clients within the local area. This opportunity for networking is invaluable.  By having Orlando Food Truck Catering provide any type of food, you can provide ‘vouchers’ for your guests by having them provide their contact information in exchange for a ticket.  You’re providing and experience, and you’re receiving not only contact information, but building life long clients, who’s first experience is sure to be shared with their friends and colleagues.  This isn’t required, sometimes clients tell us to let their guests eat to their hearts desire and once again it’s not been scientifically proven but, we fulfill those desires like 50 shades of pudding.
