Gourmet Food Trucks: The Delicious Answer To Your Catering Dilemma

You are planning an employee or tenant appreciation event, a family or class reunion, a festival or concert or an intimate wedding. Someone needs to cook the food, serve it to the guests and clean up everything afterwards. If that’s not going to be you, you need to hire a gourmet food truck.

Today’s food truck operators do more than serve hungry people on the street. Many easily whip up delicious cocktail munchies, box up tasty lunches and serve seated dinners for hundreds of hungry guests. In fact, many of LA’s top food trucks do more catering than street sales. They are experienced in preparing and distributing fresh, healthy food to large groups and then cleaning up so you never know they were there

Michael Mikhail owns a trio of popular Southern California food trucks and has served as many as 400 people in 8 minutes, thanks to his professionally stocked kitchens on wheels. “We got there early, chopped the vegetables, cooked everything and boxed it up,” Mikhail said of a major business event. “The minute the meeting broke, our professional staff was on the ground passing out boxes of freshly prepared food.”

Mikhail’s food trucks offer set menus when serving street diners, but he can develop completely different menus when catering parties or special events. His catering crew can customize a menu for any group, whether they prefer meat, chicken, seafood or vegetarian options.

By working with a professional food truck catering crew, you can have food directly served from the truck. You can choose to have “hot drops” of fresh foods delivered at your party location. You can select boxed lunches or platters of bite-size munchies. The food truck crew also can arrange for all party accessories you may need, including tables, chairs, linens, silverware and lights. They can hire wait staff, bartenders and even valets. They can recommend musicians and DJs.

Every month is busy for Mikhail’s trucks, but June the busiest with many weddings and employee appreciation events throughout the LA area. Mikhail’s catering food trucks are:

• The Hungry Nomad, an in-demand gourmet truck that frequently caters movie sets and photo shoots, as well as meetings, parties and sporting events.

• Hang 10 Tacos, a big blue truck offering tasty tacos and fresh dishes at parties and celebrations.

• Greenz on Wheelz, a large green truck that specializes in garden-fresh salads and delicious hot sandwiches. The staff will add other items to catered menus.
