The food truck industry continues to rev up Metro Creative Diners interested in trying the latest in fresh, convenient, trendy, local, and eclectic fare are looking for more than just a static address these days. Their favorite food could be on the move. The food truck industry is growing by leaps and bounds. Food trucks used to be located almost exclusively in urban centers and around construction and industrial sites as a means for workers to grab a fast bite. But today food trucks are turning up everywhere from suburban neighborhoods to college towns. The food truck industry now generates more than $2 billion in revenue in cities across the United States, offers Food Truck Nation, a project of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation. Clever dishes that can be tested and tweaked in real time and a savvy sense of social media promotion have catapulted various food trucks to popular heights. Food truck growth is even outpacing overall commercial food service, like regular restaurants. FoodTruckOperator.com says that food truck growth is now 5.4 percent versus 4.3 percent for restaurants. Food trucks provide more affordable

trucks businesses require initial investments of less than $100,000, only to earn

as much as $500,000 per year. What’s more, rather than waiting for customers to come their way, food trucks can drive right to where their target audience hangs out. Fun branding, instant recognition and good food attract customers and inspire loyalty. Geo-location software enables food truck aficionados to pinpoint just where their favorite food trucks are based on any given day. Various events, venues and malls offer parking opportunities for food trucks, but many still find most of their customers on street corners and in neighborhoods. Some restaurants are even getting on board, offering streamlined restaurant menus aboard their own mobile food trucks. Food trucks also are inspiring new business models. Visitors to downtown Duluth, Georgia, for example, can visit Truck & Tap, which is a craft beer vendor that has a special parking area for food trucks alongside the tap room. Each day of the week a different food truck fills the spot. Special beer and food pairings may be suggested. Diners seemingly can’t get enough of food trucks and their convenient and delicious offerings.

Metro Creative Owning a business is a goal for many professionals. Being selfemployed and having final say over business decisions can give people a sense of satisfaction and professional accomplishment. The small business landscape continues to evolve and expand. The Small Business Administration says that more than 50 percent of

the working population is employed in a small business. There are almost 30 million small businesses in the United States, with roughly 540,000 new start-ups each month. While owning a small business can be rewarding, it’s important that prospective business owners recognize that only around oneSee FACTORS, 29

quarter of such businesses survive 15 years or more. Taking heed of certain factors and educating themselves about entrepreneurship can help prospective small business owners prepare for and overcome some of the ups and downs of owning their own business. ■ Explore the nature of the business and if there is room in the industry/market for something of its type. Is industry oversaturated? Is there a need for this product or service? ■ Understand who might be your target customer. Identify the people who will be drawn to your product or service, even if it is a small, niche market. ■ Identify the best possible locations for the business. This is true whether the business will be brick and mortar or strictly an online business. Explore ways to position the company so it will attract as many potential customers as possible. ■ Conduct an analysis of potential competitors to get an idea of the strategies they are employing. It also is helpful to know the other

people providing similar products and services so you’ll understand what is necessary to set your business apart. ■ Devise a plan for funding and establish a budget. You will need to properly identify your sources of capital to get the business up and running. If you are not good with numbers, establish who will help you with bookkeeping and accounting to ensure the business stays on track. ■ No business is complete without an effective business plan. A plan

puts all thoughts on paper and provides direction. Such plans spell out which steps you will take and when you will take them. ■ Assess your expertise in the field. If this is something new to you, consider an apprenticeship or continuing education to obtain the skills necessary to help your business thrive. Starting a new business can be an exciting venture. However, it should not begin without forethought and research.

How to manage your company’s online reputation Metro Creative Today’s small business owners face unique challenges that businesspeople of yesteryear never had to confront. While the internet has made it possible for even the smallest businesses to have a global footprint, it’s also forced business owners to devote substantial time to managing their online reputations. A company’s online reputation can have a major impact on its ability to survive and thrive. In its 2018 “Local Consumer Review Survey,” BrightLocal, a United Kingdombased company that focuses on the needs of digital marketing agencies and local businesses, found that 91 percent of consumers between the ages of 18 and 34 trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations. In addition, the survey found that 57 percent of consumers won’t use a business that has a star rating of fewer than four stars. The BrightLocal survey underscores the effort small business owners must put into managing their companies’ online reputations. Whether business owners feel their online reputations are warranted or not, ignoring them can greatly affect their bottom lines. The following are a handful of

simple ways business owners can manage their companies’ online reputations in the hopes of benefiting their businesses and expanding their customer base. ■ Don’t ignore negative reviews. Small Biz Ahead, a service from the insurance provider The Hartford that aims to help

business owners manage and grow their businesses, advises business owners to acknowledge negative reviews. Respond privately to customers, apologizing for their unsatisfactory experience and thanking them for their feedback. When communicating with customers, always keep these

communications friendly and constructive. Dismissive, confrontational and/or rude interactions with customers will only further damage your online reputation. ■ Actively monitor your reputation. Websites such as Yelp and Google, via its Google Reviews capability, give customers plenty of places to go to share their comments about your business. Stay up-to-date on these, making a concerted effort to monitor your reputation. If you’re open for business seven days a week, chances are customers will be reviewing your business seven days a week. Reach out to customers who had negative experiences as soon as possible, and report any comments you feel violate websites’ standards the moment you see them. ■ Don’t hesitate to ask customers to edit their reviews. When you successfully reach out to customers who left negative reviews, don’t hesitate to ask them to consider editing their reviews. Many customers are happy to update their reviews if issues were promptly and successfully addressed. Online reputation management is important for today’s business owners. Though managing online reputations can seem like a full-time job, a positive reputation can greatly benefit your bottom line.
