Food trucks are quick, convenient, and are perfect in our current social distancing world. And when the Minnesota Health Department encouraged off-site food sales, food trucks were already there. The problem with being in this part of the country is that the food truck season only lasts half the year.

There are many types of food trucks. Some specialize in one thing, and others feature a little more extensive menu. You can get everything from barbeque to pizza, soul food to Thai food. I'm a barbeque guy myself. But WorkWise looked into google trends and found out that Minnesota's top choice of a food truck was -- Asian food.

The Top 5 most popular in Minnesota were:

  1. Asian Food
  2. Comfort Food
  3. Dessert
  4. Pizza
  5. Fusion

Barbeque surprisingly did not even make the top 5. But it was number one nationwide by a mile.

None of our neighbors had the same answer.

  • Wisconsin - Barbeque
  • North Dakota - Comfort Food
  • South Dakota - American Food
  • Iowa - Dessert

If you want to find food trucks wherever you might be, there's an app for that.

There are quite a few food trucks that make a lot of money. Some over a million dollars a year. Many make $200,000 - $300,000 per year. So the food truck can be quite profitable. But if you own that truck yourself, and not tied in with a restaurant, you have to work the truck every day to keep your overhead down and profits up. You also need to be smart with what you're offering to the public and where you set up shop.
