Adding drinks or dessert options (with a savory food truck) will increase the price per person by $1-$5.

If you're having a small party of 50 guests or less, you'll probably be affected by the food truck catering minimums, and the price per person will increase.

Typical service times are 2-3 hours. Additional hours will increase total costs. Travel fees can also affect pricing. Food trucks may charge a per-mile fee if your event is outside their normal travel radius (20-30 miles).
