Get in on the Catering!

We've got some awesome new features and services for food trucks who use BFT to increase your weekly revenue. If you have further questions, or need help with anything, please email us at [email protected] 

 

  • Catering. Apply for catering request by going to  https://trucks.bestfoodtrucks.com/catering-requests. Catering requests have increased dramatically in 2022. Applying for catering requests takes 10-15 seconds once you have your catering menu set up. Some of the BFT trucks did over $40,000 in catering in 2022. Now you can request a higher budget by clicking “reject" and asking for a budget increase.
  • Minimum Pre-Order Guarantee. Now you can require your customers to hit a pre-order guarantee before confirming your shift. Customers will be able to track orders on the your order page to ensure everyone is ordering. To create a minimum pre-order guarantee shift go to “schedule customer shift” in the BFT app and select "Minimum Guarantee" section.
  • Point of Sale: The Best Food Trucks Point of Sale was created to work seamlessly with our BFT online ordering system. Once activated, the POS will appear on the BFT app.
    • Having all of your orders on one screen will simplify the process of managing walk ups and online orders. Currently, only the online customers are alerted via email when a truck is scheduled at one of our locations, with our new POS, we’ll also alert walk up customers that share their phone number or email for notifications. People are incentivized to share their phone number, so they can be alerted when their food is ready.
    • Our introductory POS processing fee at 2.5% +.05 (for the first 6 months then 2.6% + .05). We have also built in incentives for POS use. If you do $200 in credit card payments, you’ll receive a $5 credit towards booking dates.
    • If you refer a food truck to the POS you'll receive $100 through Stripe after they hit $2,000 in credit card payments through BFT POS.


If you’re interested in using our POS reach out to [email protected] and please let us know where to send the credit card reader (free) and let us know when you’d like to start.
