How to Start a Mobile Food Business in Western CO – Four-part series

September 1, 2023 @ 9:00 am - October 20, 2023 @ 10:00 am

Not only are food trucks and mobile food units trending in the food industry offering unique and creative concepts as well as the ability to bring products to target markets rather than waiting for customers to come to a brick and mortar, but they also allow startup food businesses to launch an idea with lower overhead costs and test it in a variety of markets.

For this comprehensive workshop series the West Central SBDC is partnering with Joseph Kean, an industry consultant and owner of Homestead Hut, a mobile food unit in Gunnison. Joseph built his food trailer from the ground up to meet all regulatory requirements and to be a versatile unit that can be utilized by other food businesses and chefs for business and as an educational tool for helping people understand how to build an optimal mobile food business.

In this four part series, we will explore all aspects of starting and operating a mobile food business in Western Colorado covering these topics and much more:

*Health code regulations

*Mobile unit design

*Menu creation




*Power supply and waste disposal

*Commissary kitchens
