Before you get excited about the idea of a food trailer, you need to take into consideration the accessories that you will need to run a successful food trailer business.

Whether you are buying or hiring your trailer along with all the necessary accessories that you need, be sure to read this blog post. We will be giving you the low down on all the food truck accessories that you might not have thought about yet but will need to organise at some point – so keep reading for more information.

Food Trailers

Food trailers are a great way of serving various street food and drinks to the public and getting booked for hire at private events too.

Unlike a standard restaurant kitchen, a food trailer will have limited space for you to operate in, so sourcing the right equipment and accessories is crucial if you want things to run smoothly and seamlessly.

Food Trailer Accessories

Before you start your food trailer business you must figure out what food accessories you will need to function and operate. Consider crucial machines and cooking equipment, as well as cutlery and napkins – and most importantly, do not forget to factor in the costs of all these items.

Your main aim for your food trailer business is to make a profit, so consider all your costs carefully. Profit is vital for your business to survive. To give you a good idea of some of the top things you will need, consider the following:

  • Ovens
  • Ventilation
  • Fridges and freezers
  • Ice machine
  • Food preparation surfaces
  • Knives
  • Chopping boards
  • Shelving
  • Sinks
  • Disposable cutlery
  • Disposable plates or food boxes
  • Napkins
  • Utensils
  • First aid kit
  • Signage

Of course, all of the listed things may not apply to your business, as it is relative to what you are selling. Hopefully from this list, however, you now have a good idea or have now been reminded of some of the things that you may not have yet thought about.

Make sure your business can be seen and recognised by all with our exquisite and quality signage from Big Kahuna. Choose from different signage styles, including the likes of:

  • Base sign – this is a small aluminium sign which will include your design and is 900mm x 700mm.

Whatever you plan on selling, we have many cooking accessories to set you and your business up for success.

Coffee Machines

Serve expertly crafted coffee as the main business idea or serve as an extra to accompany your food. Customers will appreciate being able to pick up a bite to eat as well as buy a coffee.

At Big Kahuna, we stock a wide variety of industry-standard coffee machines for you, so you can serve barista-level coffee to your customers.


Mobile Sink and Hand Wash Facilities

Sinks are a less glamorous accessory for your business, but a must-have one at that. If you need running water for your trailer, in case you don’t have access to water when you are pitched up, then you are going to need to find your own water sources.

Sink and hand wash facilities are available to buy at Big Kahuna, so be sure to take a look at our products and specifications to see what kind of thing you need.
