Last year, we wrote about the top ten food trucks poised for breakout success in the Tampa Bay area, and we have seen some progress on that list! The food truck scene has become livelier and more diversified, giving fans more choices in their mobile cuisine selections. Due to their success, we wanted to revisit the types of food trucks the Bay Area scene could still use:


·      French Fry Truck or Potato Truck

·      Nacho Truck

·      Tapas Truck

·      Chili Truck (This one’s on the way - be sure to check out Crack Chili, coming soon!)

·      Bagel Truck

·      Chinese Truck

·      English/Irish Food Truck (we suggest these two together - you can fight amongst yourselves to determine which country's cuisine is better :-)

·      Biscuit Truck

·      Ramen Truck

·      Mexican Truck (i.e. tacos, taquitos and tostadas)


If none of the options above appeal to you, the sky's the limit in terms of creativity! However in your planning, it is equally as important to draw your attention to the types of trucks that are currently competing the market. We want to help your truck become a contributing partner in the growth of the food truck scene here in Tampa, and poised for success. The following food truck concepts will be met with stiff competition:


·      Cheesesteak Truck/Menu Item … please, no more!

·      Middle Eastern Cuisine

·      Crepes

·      Grilled Cheese

·      Asian Fusion


There are many places people can go to get average food, and Tampa Bay’s food trucks are not one of them! The trucks we work with are a collection of eateries featuring family-favorite recipes and superior street food. Whatever truck you are looking to start, ensure it reflects your passion and that you are able to provide a superior product.  This is a recipe for success and will ensure you stand out in the crowd.
