Though the type of equipment needed depends on what food the truck aims to serve, the most common types of equipment for mobile food trucks include food prep equipment, cooking equipment and refrigeration equipment. Examples of common food prep equipment are cutting boards, cookware and cutlery.
Types of common cooking equipment are counter-top grills, griddles and fryers. Refrigeration and storage equipment are essential in ensuring that necessary ingredients are kept fresh and ready for use. Every piece of equipment used on mobile food trucks must satisfy commercial health code standards. Due to the limited space in most mobile food trucks, the equipment used should be planned and measured in advance.
