    Find a location that is possible for a food truck parking and serving. If you don’t have a giant yard, then you may have to be creative. Food trucks may need a permit depending on the city and regulations. Some options to look for outside the city are a park, parking lot, garage, barn, open field, beach or lake.

    It may be necessary to rent a spot and pay for a day permit for the food truck to grease the wheels and get this party off to a good start. Because food truckers are party people, the food truck owner will have some ideas on a venue, too.


    Food truck catering starts at $10 per person and up. Most trucks have a minimum fee for showing up. Costs run higher the longer the truck serves food. Depending on your budget, you may need to find one truck that can do appetizers, main menu and dessert. If budget isn’t an issue, then having multiple trucks give your teens a choice. Each truck would still have a minimum for attending.
