One of the biggest challenges you face when running a food truck business is space – or the lack of it. You need space to prepare, store, cook, and serve food to your customers. This is why many startup food truck businesses turn to commissary kitchens. The right commissary kitchen can help your food truck business to thrive.
Commissary kitchens are an invaluable resource for food truck owners for several important reasons.
Storage space for equipment and food
There isn't a lot of space on a food truck. This can be a problem if your food truck is popular and often busy. Then you might also need space for specialized equipment for cooking the type of food you serve.
The right commissary kitchen will have plenty of space for you to store ingredients and prepared food. You can also save space on your truck by using the equipment provided by a commissary kitchen to cook your food.
Cooking and preparation space
The cramped confines of a food truck leave little space for food prep and cooking. And a lack of space can slow you down and eat into your valuable time. Renting space in a commissary kitchen at hours convenient to you means you'll have more space on your truck during business hours.
Parking space for your food truck
Many cities in the US require you to park your food truck at a commissary kitchen overnight. Plus parking at the commissary you use to prepare and store your food allows you to quickly transfer food items to your truck before you set off to start the day.
Staple food and supplies
Some commissaries will also have a supply of some of the staple food items that many food trucks and restaurants need. A good commissary kitchen will stock:
Before you rent out space at a commissary kitchen, check and find out what food supplies they offer.
Available cooking and cleaning equipment
Cooking and cleaning equipment takes up space that you and your chefs need when serving your customers, especially at peak hours. If you can rely on the equipment provided by a commissary kitchen, you'll have more space on your truck.
Disposal areas and services for trash
Disposing of rubbish takes time and space too. And if your food truck is busy, you'll produce a lot of rubbish each day. Find a commissary kitchen that can take care of all your rubbish disposal needs. You'll save time and money in the long run.

Hi there, my name is Marcy Dillinger. Welcome to my site about using spices in your recipes. When I was in college, I only had salt and pepper on hand to season my meals. The result was a rather bland culinary experience. Since then, I have filled my cupboards with spices from all around the world. I use a blend of spices in each meal I create to give the meat, produce and other ingredients amazing flavor profiles. I will use this site to talk about the different ways you all can use spices to cook your favorite meals. Please come by again soon.
