To rent a food truck for a day for your party or event, find a food truck rental company, caterer or marketplace that offers catering services, such as Roaminghunger.com or In-N-Out Burger. Research the company's services, costs and requirements, and select the truck of your choice to book the company online or by phone. The exact method to rent a food truck for a day depends on the truck rental company or catering service you select.
Pick a food truck that offers a wide selection of food to meet your guests' general dietary needs. Check your local food truck association for recommendations. Review zoning and parking restrictions in the city or area you plan to have the food truck stationed. If the food truck caterer does not cover required licenses and permits, obtain these essential items to avoid issues with operations at your event.
Discuss all the details with the food truck provider, such as the number of expected guests, the number of food trucks you need, the location of your event and payment methods. Since some food truck providers require a minimum number of guests to cater, knowing the guest count is important. Additionally, companies such as In-N-Out Burger often require a deposit or advanced booking.
