Another advertising scheme is to personally distribute take-out menus to all the local businesses in the area. This will allow you to make an appearance, so that when your customers drop in, they will remember your friendly face. Offering the employees of local businesses incentives is also a great way to get them to your location. Mail-out flyers may also be an option of flyer advertising. Be sure to learn the local laws about soliciting and never get pushy with your potential customers. If they do not want solicitation, thank them politely and exit. They might be more impressed with your polite and timely exit than if you were to stay and try to bully your way around.

If you want to veer away from the flyer concept of advertising, there are always the very traditional forms of advertising such as billboards, radio, television, and print. Having an online website is a great way to advertise to the local internet community. Most people will be impressed that you have a website. If possible, and you do not happen to be a computer programming whiz, hire a professional to design a site for you that will be pleasing to the eye as well as informative. The more attractive your website is, the more likely people are to pay attention to what it says. Also, ask your web designer about optimizing your site for key words, so that your site will be made available to the maximum number of people possible.

Yard signs are a good way to let people know that there is a new business in the area. They are fairly cheaply made and capture the attention of passing motorists on a busy highway. Be sure to check with your local enforcement agencies about the laws regarding signs like this, however. Different areas have different rules regarding the placement of signs along side the right of way of a highway. Always get permission to set up such signs.

Another good way to advertise your business is apparel. Wearing shirts that advertise your business with contact information, website address, and location is a great way to become a free walking billboard. Other useful tools include hats, bumper stickers, and jackets; anything to get the word out their.

Once you have taken care of advertising to bring the customers to you, you want to make sure they return to your establishment. Of course, you want your food product to be so delicious, your price to be so right, and your customer service so stunning that once you lure folks into your establishment, they won’t be able to resist coming back. It does not always work like that, so including in your advertisement scheme ads that lure customers back with an incentive is a great way to establish a habit. For example, your first bit of advertising got the customer there. Now, as a reward for them showing up, offer them an incentive of some sort. Maybe you want to have punch cards made up to give them a free meal after the fifth visit to your restaurant. Maybe, you want to have free drink cards or flyers that you distribute. Calculate your costs and come up with a unique incentive idea to reward your first time customers, making them want to return.

Once you have sunk some time, money, and effort in to advertising your mobile food vending business, all you can do is wait. Always remember that the best type of advertisement for any business, but especially the food business, is word of mouth. Get those people talking about how awesome your fries are, or what a killer burger you serve. If this happens, you will not be able to keep the customers off your step.
