Food Truck Catering for Events:

The best events have great entertainment and an awesome selection of food. Back in the day outdoor events relied on tent vendors to set up an outdoor cooking area to serve the masses. Those tents required additional permitting, power & long set up and breakdown times. Indeed it’s a great idea to rent food trucks for events as they’ve enhanced modern day events with full service kitchens that are completely self-contained.

From concerts to outdoor movie nights, a food truck catering company gives customers options they've never had with traditional tent vendors. One of the best things about food trucks is that they come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you're looking for a gourmet experience or something more casual, there's bound to be food trucks to rent for events that can accommodate the needs of your attendees.

We were very pleased woth the overall experience with Willie B’s. The food was good and came out quickly enough for the teachers to enjoy their lunch. There were plenty of options for any degree of health or comfort food. We had good feedback from the teacher about the quality of the food as well. The only issue was lack of communication. The communication was good until the day of. The truck was 20 min late which definitely caused some concern for our team. No call, text or comment was made when they did finally show up. I had been told we would receive a text prior to arrival and we did not. Thankfully they did not need the 30+ minutes they originally said they would to set up so it did not cause issues with the service. The only reason I feel that it is important to mention this is that a simple text or call to notify us that they would be later than we discussed the day before, would have avoided any confusion and stress for our team.
