Food truck catering in NYC

Why was 2022 a successful year for food truck catering?

Our success this year has been extraordinary for two main reasons: 

COVID-19 recovery.

A large part of our boom in 2022 was because of the slow (but steady) recovery from COVID-19. When large gatherings were put on halt during 2020 and some of 2021, fewer people were looking to use our catering services, but thankfully, 2022 saw a major comeback.

Employees are heading back into the office, postponed weddings are being rescheduled, and schools are again welcoming parents with parent-teacher conferences and back-to-school events! 

Growing food truck catering trend.

In general, food trucks are a growing trend sweeping the nation, representing a $1.4B market in the U.S. Aside from day-to-day food truck businesses, people are also becoming increasingly aware of the fact that food trucks are a perfect option for events and catering.
