Food Trucks are Back on Roads, But There’s a Twist in the Tale

Hyderabad was a food lover's city, and of late, it has emerged into a foodie paradise. While one cannot compare it to places like Delhi, it surely has its spot when it comes to being a food-loving city. And to jazz up the food space, many young entrepreneurs had started the food truck business in various parts of the city. Like all businesses, food trucks were hard-hit by the pandemic. But now, they are back on the roads to serve their best to their regular customer base.


Usually, one finds food trucks in places such as Gachibowli, Madhapur, Hi-Tec city that have loads of IT employees or in densely populated places such as Abids or Kukatpally or LB Nagar. And of late, one gets just about everything on these trucks, from idli dosa to Mexican fare, cooked right in front of your eyes.


But running a food truck is no funny business as one gets to see it in movies or series. It is a full-time job that requires a lot of patience and diligent hard work from morning to night. Also, the space is limited inside the trucks, and usually, there are two to three people working in it all the time. So, everything needs to have a pre-designated space, and things have to go about in clock-work precision, day after day.


Despite good business, the food trucks have their share of woes. One, of course, is the season change. Rains totally destroy their business as the food gets wasted, and the customers avoid food trucks during the rainy season. So between June and October, the business is rather sluggish.


Another problem is traffic. At times, customers block traffic, and this creates trouble with traffic police. So the trucks to some other place till the situation cools down and then return to their usual spot. All trucks need to get food licenses from the zone in which they want to park their truck. GHMC issues it for Rs 3500, and it has to be renewed every year.


Post pandemic, the food truck owners say they follow strict COVID protocols and utmost hygiene as it is equally important for them to retain their business.
