On average, hiring a food truck for a party costs $1,541, and pricing for a catering package can typically range from $800-$2,500.

Cuisine affects the costs of your food truck catering more than any other factor. Here are typical per-person prices along with average minimums.

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 (birthday, anniversary, etc.), you'll probably be affected by the food truck catering minimums, and the price per person will increase.

Typical service times for a party 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).
