Girls my dream is to have my own food truck and one day even my own restaurants, where I can bring my culture ( Mediterranean-North African) and western fusion. It's not cheap buying a food truck -- so I decided to think outside the box and buy a small school bus and fix it up into a food truck i found one online do you guys think its worth it ? 


cute right ?

Don't know enough about food truck prices to answer your "worth it" question but congrats on following your dream! The movie "Chef" has a fun (likely unrealistic) scene about fixing up a food truck if you want a little inspiration on film.

wow what an awesome idea ..if the bus is a great deal and fixing and renovating it is about the same cost as buying a truck i would go for it!! do not forget that if you need cookers .fryers ect that there are many free sites and i have seen places give away all kinds of stuff that you would need!!!! good luck...please keep us updated this is so exciting !!

I would suggest getting a mechanic to take a look at it and see if it would pass an inspection.. also to see what your costs of renovating it into a food truck...

Wow! What a cool endeavor that must be! I hope it all works out for you as you plan and that you profit from your passion. Good luck!

Cool idea on Sep 07, 2016 @ 01:30 pm

I do agree that it is a cool idea - I had my dream job twice (sometimes dreams don't pay the bills too well, unfortunately).

I would definitely check out how much it will cost to retrofit it properly as well.

Deep Fryers, Stove, Sprinkler System, etc. can add up quickly - not to mention insurance and getting approval for a City Permit are the non-fun parts about creating your dream.

Insurance for food trucks can be a bit difficult to find, as a lot of insurers will not write food trucks, especially one that is not purpose built - it is more of a niche market.

And marketing yourself in what could be a saturated market is also time consuming and can be costly if you don't have a lot of word of mouth business.

Do your Paperwork research and have numbers before purchasing anything for your endeavor. :)
