I have tried to get David Weber, President of the NYC Food Truck Association, to speak to the Queens LP for years about the regulatory hurdles and laws Food Truck owners face in New York City. I have failed to book him. Therefore, we are going to go to him.
This Thursday, David Weber is speaking from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on How To Become A Food Truck Entrepreneur in Conference Room 18 at the Science, Industry & Business Branch of the New York Public Library located at 188 Madison Avenue @34th Street in Manhattan.
Admission is FREE and I will be there. If you can attend, e-mail me at [masked] or call me on Thursday afternoon before the meeting on my cell phone at[masked]-7075.
Do you have a great recipe that everyone raves about? Are you interested in giving up your day job to take on the intrepid life of a food-trucker? Before you take out a second mortgage to finance your new truck, stop by this session to learn about life on the streets in NYC from the perspective of a street vendor.
David Weber, author of The Food Truck Handbook, gives an overview of what it takes to start your own food truck.
The discussion includes:
- The rise of Mobile Food
- Will food trucks endure?
- What it takes to be a vendor
- NYC Rules & Regulations
- Picking a concept
- Writing a business plan & raising funds
- Operating best practices
Weber is President of the NYC Food Truck Association, an instructor at the Institute for Culinary Education, and co-founder of Rickshaw Dumplings.
