Food trucks are a great way to add new excitement to your community or family event.
When you book a ROCFTA member business, here’s what you can expect from each and every truck:
Anyone can include food trucks in their events…all you have to do is invite them! Use the information here to find out how you can include one or more food trucks in your upcoming event.
Then, head over to our member list to decide which trucks you’d like to invite to participate.
If the event expects to draw more than 1,000 attendees, you may want to consider the opportunity to have ROCFTA partner with you as a co-sponsor. Click here to learn more.
Deciding how many trucks to have at your event is really a question of how many people you expect to host. We recommend that for every 200-300 people in attendance, you invite 1 food truck. This ratio allows the customers to get their food fast and efficiently without having more vendors than necessary.
In addition, having an estimate of the crowd size will give the participating truck(s) an idea of the volume of food they should bring in order to be prepared for your event.
Yes! When booking your truck(s), please be mindful to let these business’ know if any other food vendors will be present, including any free food that may have been donated for giveaways.
This will help the truck(s) prepare for the sales day. Not to mention, we may have a ROCFTA truck that can provide that style food for you!
Our ROCFTA trucks offer lots of variety!
Head over to our Member Trucks section for a quick description of what each of our trucks serve. You can visit each truck’s website or social media for more details on menus & pricing.
Yes! All of our trucks offer catering services in addition to street & festival services.
Because our trucks are independently owned small businesses, price, availability and offerings will vary. If you are interested in a truck for a catered event, please use our Booking section to contact that truck directly for more details.
Unfortunately, food truck ordinances vary according to local governments.
We suggest contacting your town, village or city, and asking if they have a process in place for food truck events. It may be that you need to apply for a permit or special permission.
It may be that your local fire department has questions about food trucks, and what type of equipment and fuel they carry onboard. We can help with that. Ask your local fire official to email a ROCFTA representative at email@example.com for specifics.
Many of our member trucks are health department certified across several counties.
If your event takes place outside of Monroe County, please let us know so that our members can make arrangements to be in compliance with your county’s guidelines.
All of our member trucks are insured with liability insurance. If you need your property to be listed as an additional insured, simply provide the participating trucks with the Certificate of Additional Insured name and address details.
When it comes to food trucks, the biggest thing to remember is…we’re big! The food truck you book might be as long as 28,’ so you’ll want to make sure that the area you plan to park the truck is long enough.
In addition to that, think about the weight of the truck. If you plan to park one or more food trucks on the grass, be prepared with an alternate layout, in case of rain.
ROCFTA accepts applications for new membership between January 1st-April 1st.
Because of the seasonal nature of our industry, we ask applicants to understand that it’s hard for our member trucks to meet for regular business during the summer months. We encourage you to use the free information on our site, and please email us for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another great question!
Sometimes, these types of organizations may require you to clear your food truck event through a head or district office. Please make this call before booking the vendors to avoid any day-of confusion.
