Between organizing and coordinating a Halloween party, actually enjoying yourself on the big night winds up being last on your list. Planning any party can be stressful and time-consuming, but Halloween comes with an extra set of tricks and treats. With a lot of DIY-ing, between deciding on a costume, decorations, and/or settling on a theme, there’s also the food and beverages to consider. 

If you’re the one who’s planning the menu and doing all the prepping and cooking it goes without saying that’s enough work well before the midnight hour. 

That’s where food truck catering comes in. It’s one less thing to worry about and a major headache taken off your plate. No need to shop for ingredients or slave over a hot stove. Food truck catering professionals are equipped with commercial-grade kitchens able to independently operate all cooking and refrigeration needs. Plus, they serve hundreds of customers every day. Like Walter’s Hot Dogs, a Westchester institution and nationally registered historical landmark that’s been serving its world-famous hot dogs for over a hundred years!

Regardless of how many guests attend your Halloween party, chances are there will be some with food allergies and/or dietary restrictions. Maybe some are sticking to a keto diet, while others are gluten-free. 

Aside from the added stress it brings for you as you prepare to host your party, they may be unsure if there’s even anything for them to eat. Food truck catering lets your guests customize their orders with food that’s made-to-order. 

Looking for delicious fare that’s also healthy? Why not try Poke Motion, the one and only poke bowl food truck in the Northeast! What about desserts that are vegan-friendly? Van Leeuwen prides itself on  delicious ice cream that just so happens to be vegan and makes you feel good while eating it.

Now, they can choose what’s best for them and their health and other guests won’t have to give up what they want in order to accommodate. It’s a win/win for both your guests and you.

Because of their customizable capabilities, your food truck catering can be tailored to your Halloween-themed event. Maybe you’re throwing a Versailles-inspired soiree.
