Food Truck?

Hey Everyone,

We are looking into having a food truck for our catering and I was wondering if anyone had any idea on what their pricing looked like? OR had any tips on where to begin searching for one?


We are going to have about 50 people, outdoors at our house for our elegant, backyard wedding in August.

    Depends if youre doing food or dessert. dessert is cheaper. my fiance rented an ice cream truck and we had a certain menu and it was for 3 hours unlimited and it was $700 i think

    Don't forget bussers! Even if you're not using reusable dishes, garbage from street food can start piling up really quick so I would hire someone to be consistently cleaning up the place.

    That鈥檚 a brilliant tip !! Thank you so much for your input. I think I found 2 so I鈥檓 just waiting on pricing. It鈥檚 a smaller wedding because of the rules in AB but it鈥檚 just easier and honestly safer/smarter to just have someone prep all the food just can鈥檛 afford $30/head at this point haha.

    I went to a wedding a few years ago with food trucks and it was brilliant. The couple reached out to 2 of their favs and they both were available. They picked a limited menu to keep things quick and put the options on the RSVP like a traditional dinner.


    One tip: have someone designated to bring the wedding party food so you and your people don't need to wait in a line. At this wedding the guests were served first and the bride and groom got stuck talking with the people who had already eaten and almost missed their meals.

    I definitely have that one saved. I found a taco one that looks amazing too so I requested pricing from them!

    Oh that鈥檚 not bad !! I haven鈥檛 talked to my parents (who are paying) about having a food truck we were going to 鈥渃ater鈥 ourselves but it might be nice to not have to worry about dinner and just supply appetizers or something instead. Thanks !!

    Hi Cassie! We have hired a food truck for our wedding and found it to be very reasonably priced! I think about $25-$35 dollars a head, depending on if you do appetizers/midnight lunch or not!
