How to Start a Food Truck Company in Delaware?

Many foodies around the country are turning their passion into a business with a food truck. Food trucks offer many benefits that may make them more appealing for chefs who want to work for themselves, but don't want the commitment of a brick and mortar business. Even if you're the owner of an established restaurant in New Castle, a food truck is a great investment to help you raise brand awareness and drum up extra income.

Starting a new food truck business is intimidating, but at Bayshore Ford, we want to help you get it right. We offer a variety of upfitted commercial vans ready to be customized into the block's new favorite food truck. Explore some frequently asked questions about starting a food truck in New Castle.

How to Get Licensed?

Just like any other restaurant, your food truck needs to be licensed. In our native state Delaware, you must submit plans to the Delaware Health and Social Services Division of Public Health for approval. There may be different barriers in other states, so be sure to do your research first.

Which Truck Makes a Good Food Truck?

We actually recommend the Ford Transit Van for first-time and veteran food truck vendors looking for a new vehicle. The Transit Van can come totally empty or upfitted with shelving and storage, making it a great place to start for a food truck. Whether you're installing an electric fryer or a propane stove, the Transit van has the space and upfit switches that you need.

How to Secure Financing?

Talk to our Finance Center to learn about securing a lease or loan for your new van. Your best bet for financing the food truck additions like a ventilation system and stove would be a local credit union or bank.
