Both of our food trucks are available to book for private events. The Roots food truck is a chef driven concept that uses seasonal ingredients and endless creativity to develop new menus every single day. We strive to purchase as many ingredients as we can locally so sometimes our prices may seem a bit higher than other food trucks, but our quality will be above and beyond. Below are some frequently asked questions about booking the food truck.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a minimum number of people I need for the food truck to come out?
No, but we do have a minimum bottom line. For the food truck to come out and serve at your party we require a minimum of $900.00 on food and beverage be spent.
Will the generator from the food truck be too loud for my neighbors?
In most cases we can plug the food truck directly into your home or business as long as there is a standard outlet no more than 50 ft from the truck. We also have a quiet running generator that is no louder than a conversation if we are unable to plug the truck in.
How do I choose the menu for my guests?
Some folks know exactly what type of food they want, and that is great. i.e.; Tacos, Sandwiches, Cajun themed, Southern BBQ etc…
