HASH(0xa7e17dec) out of 5 stars incredible resource for someone interested in the mobile food truck industry May 13 2013
By Blake M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
for anyone interested in getting into the food truck industry, i would get your hands on this book. ive checked out from the public library, food truck for dummies and idiots guide to a food truck. i purchased this book because i believe it is head and shoulders above the other two.

This was written by a guy with the EXPERIENCE and KNOWLEDGE of the culinary industry, running a food truck (the rolling grill) and cooking competition bbq. it is VERY obvious that he did a TON of research in writing this book and covers everything except his new spice rub =-)

great job with the book Eric Thomas, and thanks for always helping me.
