Concession Selections – Equipment for Food Trucks

Posted in: Uncategorized

It’s mid-summer and food trucks and concession businesses are in full swing.  We’ve seen some great food truck ideas – a mobile wood fired pizza oven, a cupcake truck, a crepe truck, and a mobile soup truck to name a few. If you are looking for portable profits, we stock lots of Concession Equipment & Catering Equipment that can help.

 

Induction ranges for food trucks and concession.

Induction Ranges

If you are going to cook on your food truck, consider using induction countertop ranges. Induction ranges cook faster than gas, with less heat, and using less energy.  They are also easy to clean, and compact, which makes them perfect for operations like food trucks and portable concessions. Many professional chefs are acknowledging that induction cooking is superior to even gas due to its speed & efficiency. Within a small, hot space such as a food truck where energy use is often limited, induction makes sense.

 

Crepe Makers for Concession

Crepe makers can outfit a crepe truck for a fast and easy food business.

Crepes are a terrific specialty items for food trucks. They are easy, fast, cheap to make, and can serve as high quality breakfast or lunch items. These crepe makers are compact and perfect for churning out crepes in a mobile setting.

Mitch Pavel, the owner of Hot & Healthy Crepes in North Lake Tahoe, California, uses 3 Krampouz Crepe Makers in his truck to churn out crepes stuffed with meat, veggies, eggs, fruit, cheese, or of course, Nutella.  He runs off two 50 lb. propane tanks and generates or plugs in for electricity to power a prep table, a two-door reach-in refrigerator, and a mixer for crepe batter.

Chad Hayes & Andrea Schwartz, operators of The Souper Wagon, keep everything as organic and local as possible – “We only like to serve what we’d make for ourselves”. They also run on a propane / electric combination to prep and serve fresh soup. They are equipped with a griddle, prep table, and gas powered hot food / steam table to keep soup hot. They can also be found parked or driving around North Lake Tahoe.
