While running a food truck business is not easy, I am much more prepared because of the insight and instruction I received from the handbook. A must read for anyone who is seriously considering starting a Food Truck Business.
The way it's written is very engaging and easy to follow, and doesn't seem like a drag to read in the least like some other books of its kind. The author clearly has a passion for and expertise in the business. Highly recommended!
