All around Australia and the world, there is an apparent increase in food trucks and vans—and it’s easy to see why. These concession trailers are ideal for those who want to get into the restaurant business without spending too much money. Not only are vans portable—they are cheaper too. Rather than renting out a space in a commercial building in Queensland to put up a small restaurant, some chefs choose to build a concession trailer so that they don’t have to pay expensive rent.
The most successful food truck businesses in Queensland are built on robust concession trailers. Your truck needs to be able to handle the functional demands of a portable food selling business while representing your brand in a completely unique manner that will make you stand out from the other concessions.
Look for a customized van company online that can cater to your specific needs. They should help you with much more than just decorating your van—they should understand the rigorous standards that food vans are subjected to in Queensland. Once you find a prospective manufacturer, check how long they have been in business. Look at their portfolio to assess if they can deliver what you are looking for.
The key to starting a successful concession trailer business in Queensland is to ensure that your truck is well-designed. The kitchen must use state-of-the-art facilities from high-quality appliances. The truck must have solid insulation and be integrated with instant hot and cold water system.
Make sure the floors are waterproof, and that the materials used throughout don’t encourage rodent or insect infestation. Check if the appliances satisfy Queensland’s standards for food trucks. Warranty is especially important in protecting yourself from a defective truck. Some of the best food truck manufacturers offer up to 2 or 3 years of warranty.
