If you need a caterer to feed your employees, tenants, customers, festival guests, convention-goers or workshop attendees, look no further than your neighborhood food truck. Food truck operators are famous for whipping up yummy lunches and tasty dinners to eat on the street, and many have experience catering fresh, hot food for large crowds and serving it up in record time.
One of those is Michael Mikhail, owner of a fleet of Southern California food trucks. He and his well-trained team have served as many as 400 people in 8 minutes. “We got there early, chopped the vegetables, cooked everything and boxed it up,” he said. “The minute the meeting broke, our professional staff was on the ground passing out boxes of freshly prepared food.”
Mikhail’s food trucks offer set menus when serving meals curbside but are flexible when catering parties or events. “We can customize the menu for any large crowd, providing meat, chicken, seafood or even vegetarian and vegan meals,” he said.
The food truck client has many options. They can choose to have the food truck at the party or specify “hot drops” of freshly prepared food to be delivered at the event site. They can order boxed lunches for later consumption or platters of bite-size foods for guests to munch. The food trucks can arrange full party rentals, including tables, plates, chairs and lights. They will provide wait staff, bartenders and even valets.
June is an especially busy month for Mikhail’s fleet with employee appreciation celebrations at hospitals throughout the LA area. “We often serve as many as 1,200 people at a hospital employee appreciation event,” he said. “We prepare hot, fresh meals in our food truck kitchens right at the location. Our customers don’t get food that has been sitting around for hours.”
Three of Mikhail’s famous food trucks are:
- The Hungry Nomad, a popular food truck that frequently caters movie sets and photo shoots, as well as meetings, parties and sporting events.
- Hang 10 Tacos, a big blue truck offering tasty tacos and fresh dishes at parties and celebrations.
- Greenz on Wheelz, a large green truck that feeds partygoers garden-fresh salads and delicious hot sandwiches. However, the staff can add other items to the menu as the client desires.
When it comes to your special occasion, “You have to feel comfortable with the people you’re hiring,” said Mikhail. “Call us up. We’ll always make you look good.”
