Earlier this year, I wrote an article about the food truck trend and the rapid growth of the industry over the past five years. According to reports, food truck revenues are expected to reach nearly $3 billion by 2017. Across the country, business is booming and an increasing number of folks want to get in.
One of the first on the scene was Road Stoves, a L.A.-based company that rents and sells food trucks to entrepreneurs and businesses. Founded in 2009 by high school buddies Josh Hiller and Morris Appel, Road Trucks has helped dozens of entrepreneurs get started and have run several promotional campaigns for major companies such as Microsoft and ESPN.
Food Truck Connection
Looking to expand upon the success of Road Stoves and keep up with the demand for rental trucks for mobile dining, Hiller has launched FoodTruckRental.com. The website, which aims to connect food truck owners and renters worldwide, provides listings of available food trucks in the United States and Canada.
The site allows food truck owners to list their vehicles as either short or long-term rentals or for sale. Individuals or corporate clients interested in renting or buying a truck can search all available trucks by zip code or description. Hiller, a lawyer with experience renting trucks to a wide range of clients, has drafted a sample lease and checklist for FoodTruckRental.com clients.
