Make Your Party Memorable!

Even under the best conditions, planning a party is stressful. Scheduling everything, sending invites, and confirming RSVPs are all exhausting work, and that’s before you actually get to the event itself.

Although the food at an event might not be the first thing people talk about, it’s a factor that can leave a lasting impression. That’s where hiring a food truck to cater can be a game-changer. To put it simply, trusting local food truck catering with your event removes a ton of stress from planning while also ensuring a much higher quality of food than you can expect through most other types of caterin

Depending on event size, food truck catering can take different forms. The food truck might park in a designated area for casual or outdoor events and serve items off an event menu. Meanwhile, larger events can benefit from drop-off food truck catering, where a food truck pre-cooks the meals and drops them off ahead of time. Let’s take a closer look at the types of events that benefit from good food truck catering!

Accommodating a Large Corporate Event? No Problem.

Honest question, when was the last time you were actually excited about the food at a workplace event? That’s not hypothetical: think back through all the room-temperature pizza and spongy sandwiches and try to remember a time you were excited for the “lunch” part of the day for actual, food-related reasons. You can probably guess where this is going. It doesn’t matter whether you’re figuring out food for a 20-person team building event or a 200-person conference; hiring a food truck is the way to go. Food trucks are skilled at quickly serving big crowds, and you’ll likely be surprised to find that the price-per-meal is generally just as affordable as opting for options like pre-wrapped sandwiches.

Naturally, the food is going to be A LOT better too. Food trucks stay open by wowing people with their food. The same can’t be said for most other forms of work event catering.

Say Goodbye to Overpriced Wedding Catering!

Here’s an understatement: wedding planning is stressful. Many wedding services understand that, and they capitalize on that stress to charge higher prices for substandard service. As with all things wedding-related, you can find high-quality food (while saving time and money!) by widening your search beyond designated wedding catering.

Enter: the food truck. 

Hiring a food truck doesn’t mean your wedding dinner is limited to burritos, burgers, and gyros, either. For example, The Colorado Pig Rig is our truck that sees the most wedding bookings, and it offers full-service, pork-centric feasts! Smoked brisket, charcuterie boards, and authentic carnitas are all ways to elevate your wedding dinner from “classy” to “classic” while also saving on cost!

In conclusion, it’s never too early to start thinking about catering for your next event. Even if planning is still in its early stages, reaching out to a reliable food truck caterer is a great way to eliminate the stress (and plenty of the cost!) that comes from figuring out food. A good food truck will work with you to ensure their placement, menu, and output are perfect for the occasion!
