Just like any service there are a few factors that come into play.
1. Location: How far does a food truck have to drive to serve your needs?
2. Length of Service: Do you need to feed 50 people in 1 hour or 50 people over 6 hours? How fast you need people fed can also impact the number of trucks needed.
3. Amount / Type of food being served: Serving your team in half meals can save on budget or be used as a bonus of trying different things on the menu if you choose to purchase multiple half meals for a guest.
4. Number of trucks wanted / needed based on time requirements.
Some other factors:
Weddings: This is a whole different bowl of enchiladas. The time spent planning, doing a tasting, coordinating timing of trucks and extra time spent on site is significant. You can see our content dedicated to food trucks wedding catering to spell out the variables and what's needed.
Insurance requirements to access your location: There are times where you're at an airport, university or high end commercial property. When requirements say a truck needs a Million dollars in auto insurance, most trucks don't carry that level of coverage. Most of the time that level of coverage isn't needed but, it definitely helps to use a booking agency to get a better variety of trucks because calling and messaging multiple trucks to see what their coverage levels is usually time consuming.
