Frequently Asked Questions - Office Lunch
Best Food Trucks is an end-to-end solution to connect gourmet food trucks with customers in a variety of ways. We’ve built a unique software solution to streamline the process of food truck booking and scheduling trucks, and an exclusive order ahead technology that takes away the hassle of long lines and lets the food trucks focus on making food.
There are many other food truck booking platforms, but not like BFT. For example, we have an exclusive order ahead technology so customers / tenants / attendees can see real photo menus, order from their phone or desktop, and get texted when their food is ready. In addition, we collect ratings via SMS so we have data when it comes to which food trucks you like, and which ones you don’t. That way, we can automatically optimize based on preferences.
Plus, we truly pick from the best food trucks in your area. Our goal is to send a variety of trucks with quality food that’s healthy, and not just the same trucks every week.
Most other companies simply send out food trucks and don’t bother to collect feedback from their customers. With other food companies you may waste your time waiting in line or waiting for your name to be called.
We just want you to have the freshest food with a convenient ordering method from a food truck steps outside your office.
So what does that mean? Here’s a few ways of how we work:
Our main business is helping offices and property managers in buildings with limited food options transform their lunch experience by booking a food truck business of your choosing. If you’re a property manager, you want to make sure your existing or prospective tenants are happy with their nearby food options otherwise they might choose somewhere else. And if you’re an employer, you want to keep employees happy with fresh food close to home.
Typically, this means we’ll set up a regular daily spot Monday-Friday for local food trucks to come out. All we need is a loading bay, a saved parking spot, or somewhere that the food truck can park. If you know of a spot that’s not literally your building but across the street, we can work with that as well.
We also do food truck catering for meetings as well. Whether you’re a salesperson looking to impress clients, an executive who wants to do something to reward their team, or just are tired of the same boring catering food (of which 25% goes straight to the trash bin), we can book the food truck for you and take care of the payment logistics. Plus, you can order online so your meeting goes smoothly without people having to wait in line.
If you live in an apartment, email your leasing office about partnering with Best Food Trucks. We’ve helped numerous apartment buildings set up a regular stop for residents so they can enjoy fresh food literally steps from their front door.
For apartments, we work with the leasing office to find the best spot (typically a parking spot, loading bay, or somewhere convenient for both the truck and residents) for the truck to park. Then, we’ll open up the spots to our amazing network of 1000+ food trucks we work with across the country and find the best local food trucks in your area.
The process is incredibly easy to set up, and requires virtually no work on the apartment side. We totally get that leasing agents are incredibly busy as it is, so we do 99% of the work to help residents know about the trucks, order online, and answer any questions they might have via SMS catering.
Music Festivals / Events / Theme Parks
If you’re planning an event and want food trucks, please do yourself a favor and let us help you. With BFT’s advance food truck booking platform, attendees can order from their phone and get texted when their food is ready.
Even if you’re experienced in booking food trucks in the past, without our order ahead technology, you’re basically going to waste an hour of your attendees’ time in line when they could be watching bands, walking around, spending more money, or enjoying the programming you’ve meticulously crafted.
We can take care of booking food trucks for events along with the scheduling and negotiating, or plug-in to your existing process to help get it to the finish line along with day-of live monitoring to make sure everything goes smoothly.
We do a TON more with food trucks… everything from catering food trucks at weddings, charities, studio and on-set, to tv/film productions, concerts, stadiums, and more. If your project or application involves anything remotely involved with food trucks or you just want to upgrade your existing catering / food vendor experience, reach out and we’ll help you either way!
