Food Truck 101: The Conference

By Lucia January 26, 2013

The idea for Food Truck 101 started in 2011 when the City of Boston started offering the first spots for food trucks, and a lot of people told us they were interested in starting trucks. We figured we had learned a lot by being the first new truck in Boston. So we decided to run a seminar sharing information about financials, labor, and food with potential operators. Last year we expanded Food Truck 101 to include a panel discussion with Bon Me, Roxy’s, and Cupcakory.

A lot has changed since the first Food Truck 101. We/ve opened more trucks, and we’ve been joined by 50 others in Boston, including the kids of a customer who eats with us at the MIT truck.

Now people are saying it’s time for a broad conversation about food trucks. And we think Boston is the best city to offer the first-ever Food Truck 101 Conference. We’ll feature different sessions with current operators, historians, and city officials. Topics: building food trucks, social media for food trucks, food truck financials, and the historical context for food trucks.
