Unfortunately, cooking skill and prime location do not a successful food truck make. Not automatically, at least. True success also requires a fair amount of business acumen. Making money in this industry is just like making money in any other industry – you’ve got to keep careful records, study trends, and spend less than you make. There is a reason why 80% of restaurants fail within five years of opening. Take a look at any one of the current restaurant-related reality TV shows. What do you see? Lots of good people and excellent chefs defaulting on loans, losing their homes and livelihoods because they don’t have a clue how to run a successful business. Depressing, isn’t it? If you want to avoid that fate – if you don’t fancy being screamed at by your CPA or the IRS or (if you’re really unlucky) Gordon Ramsay –  then pay careful attention to what I’m about to say: You need a point-of-sale (POS) system.
