Food trucks are quick, convenient, and are perfect in our current social distancing world. And when the Minnesota Health Department encouraged off-site food sales, food trucks were already there. The problem with being in this part of the country is that the food truck season only lasts half the year.

There are many types of food trucks. Some specialize in one thing, and others feature a little more extensive menu. You can get everything from BBQ to pizza, soul food to Thai food. I'm a barbeque guy myself. But looked into google trends and found out that Minnesota's top choice of food truck was -- Asian food.

There are quite a few food trucks that make a lot of money. Some over a million dollars a year. Many make $200,000 - $300,000 per year. So the food truck can be quite profitable. But you have to work them every day and be smart with what you're offering and where you set up shop.

If you want to find food trucks wherever you might be at, there's an app for that.
