If you’re in the New Jersey area, do your homework and visit the Top Food Truck Builders for New Jersey Restaurants. You’ll learn so much from the initial conversations, visits, facility tour, etc. Check out some Questions You Need to Ask Your Food Truck Builder for tips on what you need to know!  For example, here are a few questions to ask your food truck builder:

What is your typical build timeframe? Get a complete timeline of the build process in writing. Be sure you understand the timeline demands – what do you need to provide in order to continue pushing the process along? Will you be given weekly updates on the build process? Based on conversations with several customers that have built with other builders, the biggest frustration of the food truck build is missing the deadlines.

After the build is complete, how will I receive the unit? Builders operate the delivery process differently, so it’s important to have a plan in place so you’re not scrambling at the last minute to get your food truck delivered to you.

Do you have financing options? Without financing and security of funds, a food truck cannot be built. Some builders are beginning to offer in-house financing to ensure their customers can receive secured financing. Ask about those options.

Can I get a list of references? Ask the builder for a list of references for past projects. Getting a past customer (or current customer) on the phone can clarify the experience from the buyer’s  point of view, and determine if this will be a good fit for you. Many builders will be happy to provide a list of references. I think it’s safe to say… if  the builder is hesitant to provide a list of past projects, they are trying to hide, or cover up, bad experiences.
