What is a milestone? A high octane Truck’in Foodie Running on sustainable food packaging
Food truck business in India
Food truck business in India is a relatively new idea, but it has picked up considerably in the last decade. It is all about demand and supply. Customers love quality food, wrapped in aesthetically pleasing packaging, which is quickly delivered and is reasonably priced. There is no secret recipe for a food truck’s success. Each food truck owner has a different journey. A few fail and close the shop. Many thrive and expand their business.
