How Much Does Food Truck Catering Cost?
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost to rent a food truck in Iowa City?
On average renting a food truck for catering in Iowa City costs $1,541, and costs 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.
|Cuisine||Average Price per Person||1-100 Eaters (Minimum)|
|Taco Truck Catering||$10-15||$1,000|
|Burger, BBQ, & Pizza Truck Catering||$15-25||$1,500|
|Dessert Truck Catering||$8-20||$800|
|Beverage Truck Catering||$8-20||$800|
Adding drinks or dessert options (with a savory food truck) will increase the price per person by $1-$5.
If you're having a smaller corporate event 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).
This data is based on historical Roaming Hunger catering bookings and does not include any taxes or fees.
