Ultimate Guide to Austin’s Best Food Trucks!


Across the nation food trucks are playing a role in multi-million dollar commercial real estate investments. Austin has over 1,000 food trucks operating daily and space is becoming harder and harder to find. Rent can range from $500 to $1,500 a month per truck and many lots have waiting lists. This presents a great opportunity for commercial property owners to open up some of their vacant land or lots to food truck owners.
