Multiple options can be worked out to best fit the needs of your fundraising goals.
It is important to understand the operational costs for a food truck to service an event such as this. Factors to consider are food cost, food waste, travel cost, labor cost, cooking fuel, and supplies. After all costs are factored in, a percentage of the average net profits would then be considered for donation. Operational costs will be different for each truck therefore it would be difficult for you to estimate fundraising proceeds to meet your goals. Other factors to consider are the number of attendees eating. This estimated number will determine the amount of food to prepare as to prevent excessive food waste. Alternatively, it would be recommended to set a flat dollar amount for attendees to donate on top of the food trucks' standard meal price. Email us for more details regarding fundraising events.
KC Food Truck Mafia holds our trucks to the highest standard keeping all permits and inspections current. Each truck carries their own insurance, most with a minimum of 1 million dollars liability coverage. We are happy to provide copies of documents as necessary.
We hesitate to put arbitrary pricing on the trucks because more often than not the initial quote changes and we try our best to avoid surprises. We offer a wide variety of services and do not have hidden charges. We maintain a transparent cost breakdown for each event. After we get through initial conversations with you regarding your event, we will provide you with a proposal and contract. Our contracts clearly spell out exactly what we are doing for you and how much it will cost.
We are always looking to expand our locations and are happy to talk with you about the size of your facility, days of desired service, number of offices nearby and access for each individual trucks. Email us for details about a contracted lunch service.
Each truck is an independently owned business and operates in a unique fashion with different product, staff size, food costs, etc. We would work with you to determine the correct amount of food for each truck to have on hand depending on attendance, menu size, and number of trucks. We would ensure that trucks do not run out of food, slow in production or turn people away. When we ask trucks to stop counting and just serve, it is considered a BUY-OUT. To buy out a truck you will pay more than a controlled situation, but your guests do not deal with tickets and eat whatever they would like. Email usfor more details about a BUY-OUT.
Together with the client, we will create a ticket system for the guests. We can provide guests with one ticket for each truck (color specific) or a number of generic tickets (each good for one taste from any truck). A ticket system will allow us to control the amount of food consumed by each guest and will give us an accurate count at the end of your event. We can also create a dessert and/or drink voucher. Without knowing menu and truck choices, generally trucks will each require a $700 to $2,000 minimum depending on estimated number of guests. Trucks will collect and return all tickets after the event. If the minimum is not met, the difference will be billed to the client. No food or beverages are given to take home nor will gift certificates be issued to make up for not meeting the full minimum. With the tasting option, clients can expect costs to run between $18 and $30 per guest. Kansas City's Food Truck Mafia requests a lead time of four to twelve weeks for an event of this size.
We would highly recommend creating a ticket system for your guests to help control cost, food consumption and to provide us with an accounting system on the back end. Each guest would receive one ticket good at any of the trucks. Attendees choose one meal and a drink from the truck of their choice. Depending on truck and menu choice, trucks would each require a minimum of between $700 and $2,000. Giving the guests the option of trucks, some trucks may go over the minimum and others may not. Differences will be billed to the client. We will return all tickets to you at the end of the day allowing you to see exactly what was served. With this option you can expect to pay between $10 and $15 per person. Kansas City's Food Truck Mafia requests a lead time of four to eight weeks for any event of more than 200 attendees.
