Hottest Catering Trends: Food Trucks
Posted on: 8/3/2014  by Angela

One of Richmond’s hottest food trends is a catering dream if you’re looking for something fun and funky for your upcoming wedding. You may have seen them advertised: whole courts of fabulous food trucks bearing everything from soft serve to empanadas. They travel in packs to support various organizations and events year-round. Did you realize, though, that you can take your pick and feature one or more trucks at your celebration?

Yes, food trucks have found their home in Virginia. Long a staple of the "major markets”, they rose to popularity at weddings in the last decade or so, and have graced the pages of most popular magazines and blogs. Until recently, though, the mid-Virginia bride has had only limited access to these creative caterers, and could only dream of such wonders as street-side Cajun, cake pops, coffee bars, and comfort foods. Changes in local legislation designed to accommodate well-vetted and regulated truck vendors, however, have increased the options multi-fold. Now one only has to perform a simple search, or contact the local food truck association to get connected with dozens of truck-based caterers.

Where do these trucks come from? Many are actually affiliated with local restaurants, while others have been serving mobile populations for years. Worry not – you don’t have to give up the comforts of traditional catering for your event in order to enjoy the unique pleasure of the food truck. Combine the services creatively to tantalize your guests. Consider a tapas-style truck for cocktail hour, or delight your guests with freshly made doughnuts as a late-night treat (our favorite!). If the truck vendors can think outside the traditional restaurant, you can most certainly think outside of the box!

It is important to note that regionally, some local governments are more open to mobile food courts and food trucks than others. Some localities outright ban them, so before you commit, ask your venue and your vendor for specific restrictions that may apply. If you are combining catering providers, be certain that all parties know your intentions, as some may have exclusivity clauses requiring you to choose just one. Also, while it should go without saying, we'll say it anyway: it never makes sense to save a dollar at the expense of your safety or that of your guests. Please responsibly screen your food truck vendors and ensure that you are choosing one with a record of sterling sanitation and high quality products.

Have you attended a wedding where a food truck vendor was a featured service? Tell us about it on our Facebook Page, and let us know what you loved and what you’d recommend! And don’t forget to contact Classic Party Rentals of VA today for all of your event rental needs!
