Another very good question about food rucks. Any seasonal business is good and profitable, but it is not easy to survive outside the season. Consider two options for utilizing your food truck.

Consider moving it downtown or close to the city entertainment! These places will always be profitable!
Another option is to park the trailer and wait for a new season. Well, people do it, so in some cases, it might be economically profitable.

Definitely! It is a great business. Offer your services to offices, hotels, resort centers. Advertise them in newspapers! People will be happy to invite your food truck to a great event and have tasty food that has just been taken off the stove.
Another alternative is open-air festivals. They often take place in Europe irrespective to whether it is hot summer, beautiful, colorful autumn, snowy winter, or a charming spring. All you need to do is just to follow the announcements of open-air events near you and bring the trailer to all of them.
