Food Truck Displays & Street Vending Cart Supplies
Food Trucks & Street Carts
There's no doubt that street vendor carts have become more popular in recent years, and this is especially true for food trucks. Part of the reason for their growth in popularity is due to an increase in consumer demand for quick and inexpensive meal options. Reality TV has also played a part because there are new shows dedicated entirely to the topic, like Food Network's "The Great Food Truck Race" and "Food Truck Face Off". But perhaps the biggest reason for the surge in street vending carts' popularity is that the owner/operator can spend less and get more out of a food truck than a traditional restaurant. Street vending eliminates the need for extra equipment and costs associated with typical restaurants, which can really help maximize profit margins. The best part is that your customers can still get a great deal even while you streamline your earnings. Food trucks are renown for experimentation and fusion food, often displaying unique daily specials on their menu boards. So now that we have established that street vendor carts are very popular and we understand why, let's think about some ways to make your "restaurant on wheels" the best it can be! On this page, you'll find a curated selection of high quality food truck displays that are sure to grab the attention of customers and increase your bottom line. Shop anything from custom printed banners & flags to plastic tables, napkin dispensers, and menu boards!

Whether it's every grilled cheese variety imaginable or just simple hot dogs, every food vendor cart has its specialty. But no matter what you sell, you have to make sure that customers know what you are offering. One of the best ways to do this is to use custom printed food truck banners. While most rolling restaurants feature their name or pun-filled brand painted brightly on the side, the name doesn't always explain what's actually on the menu. Some carts serve classic americana, like burgers, fries, and shakes, but others offer authentic mexican burritos. To make sure your food truck stands out from the rest, you'll want add a custom flag or banner that explains the gist of the fare you offer. You can also do this with sidewalk signs and sandwich boards. Here, you'll find designs that hold pre-printed posters, come with changeable letter sets, or feature write-on surfaces. Any of these options allow you to customize the signage just for your food cart.
So you've successfully educated prospective customers on the types of foods you offer from a distance, but what will you do now they that are standing in line? Menu boards are the perfect solution for displaying food truck menus and pricing. There are several different designs, but every option allows you to tailor each item and price to match your business' needs. Marker and chalk boards enable street vendors to add to and change menus on the fly. Large letterboard systems provide the same customizable features but are generally used as a more permanent solution. If you plan to hand out folded menus or you want to display a list of your catering services, consider putting them in a small brochure-sized literature dispenser. We have all kinds of brochure holders that are perfectly sized for tri-fold menus. Some are even made for outdoor use and can be attached right to the side of the truck with their provided suction cups! A hinged flap keeps the folded menus protected while inside the box. As you can see, there are endless options for displaying your food cart menus.
After your customers have made their selections and you have served up their orders, they'll probably be looking for napkins, plastic utensils, and straws. Keeping these disposable paper and plastic goods accessible to customers will certainly keep them happy. You may also want to get a countertop organizer to keep these items neatly arranged. We even offer special caddies, squeeze bottles, and dispensers for your condiments, dressings, and seasonsings.
Once customers have collected everything they need for their meal, they'll be looking for a place to sit down and eat. While many food trucks are parked in a location only temporarily, some either travel the same routes with known picnic tables or park in a more permanent location with many other food carts. If your food truck will be parked for an extended period of time, you should consider bringing your own tables. Our plastic folding tables for street vendors are perfect because they are inexpensive and fold up neatly while not in use. The scratch resistant top also cleans very easily, saving you time and effort. Umbrellas are another great amenity to add to your food truck seating area. Our umbrellas come in stock designs, but we can also custom print your logo on the fabric for even more branding power. Because street vendors and their customers always have to contend with weather, it's a good idea to set up some umbrellas. Food truck umbrellas protect customers from the hot sun and the rain, so they're handy on any day (just be careful on those extra windy ones!). Trash cans are yet another essential purchase for food cart operators. These waste receptacles allow you to keep the area surrounding your food cart clean. Since so many food trucks are mobile, you'll want to make sure that you take extra special care of the area you occupy.
