Many in NC are biased toward food trucks since there are four amazing food trucks that are great catering options when looking for options for delicious meals. North Carolina’s food truck community is mainly owned by trained chefs who have years of experience in culinary work in traditional eateries who offer catering that is full service. Here are some tips when you are thinking about hiring a food truck for your wedding or rehearsal dinner.
Think outside of the truck
Four of NC popular catering trucks include:
- Pie Pushers
- American Meltdown
- Sympathy for the Deli
- Chirba Chirba Dumpling
All work as caterers that are full-service and they offer an array of food options that might not be sold on their truck menus. This is true for many NC food trucks. For example, “Sympathy for the Deli”, will often roast entire hogs for wedding rehearsals catering or meals for a reception. A “pig pickin’” is a wonderful way to announce a southern tradition that is tasty for family and friends. NC food truck catering is able to cater almost anywhere with or without having their truck in tow and they also offer the same rentals as well as professional staff that traditional caterers offer.
The “Parlour ice cream” truck is a business that often parks, to serve many tasty treats for events. In fact, some hosts keep the arrival of this truck as a secret and a surprise ice cream party will greet guests at the end of their meal.
Many customers have the thought of hiring a number of trucks for catering to their event, and this is great. But, keep in mind that this is an option that is expensive. When a food truck agrees to cater an event, they are forgoing any other option somewhere else, which is one of the reasons they have “catering minimums”. These minimums can vary each day as well as every season, so make sure to reach out to your favorite trucks for further information.
