How do You Get Customers for an Ice Cream Truck?

Finding customers for an ice cream truck business can be a concern, since the days of the trucks rolling through neighborhoods have long gone. Some still do this in the height of summer, but most tend to find a spot or two and stay there regularly, or sign up to events to get their customers.

The idea of a rolling ice-cream truck is still a favorable one, and if you have the wherewithal to endure the long tiresome driving, then this can be a good way of getting customers. The trick is finding the right places to visit, and being regular, so people get to know when you will be coming. However, you need to be careful with this idea, as people tend to keep ice cream in their freezers in summer, so often don’t need the truck visits in many places.

Setting up at a popular location on a regular basis is still one of the best ways to get customers, and repeat customers, which is essential for a food business. Parks, beach fronts, lakesides, public pools, and other public areas where people tend to gather in the summer are the perfect places to set up. You may need to do a little research here, and find the best local places to stop over and set up, and whether other trucks use the same locations.

Setting up at events is also a good way to bring in customers. And whether you set up on the fringes of the event or sort out a booking to be inside a pre-scheduled event such as a local baseball game, you can usually find plenty of summer events to keep you busy. And the advantage is that you have nothing to physically set up – just arrive, park, and open up. Picnics, weddings, office functions, school events, and private parties make great bookings for selling ice cream.
