With a variety of chocolate, candy, and even slushies, Candy Food Truck may be an emerging vendor of event-type confections. Just think: the sugary aroma may waft through your local farmers’ market or birthday party, just beckoning passersby to satisfy their cravings with a good treat.

Based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Candy Food Truck is one of the few mobile vendors in the country that specializes in dishing out name-brand candy. With a dedication to serving smiles, your Candy Food Truck franchise could be next.

Candy Food Truck began franchising in 2020 and is actively seeking to expand its reach.

Why You May Want To Start a Candy Food Truck Franchise

Candy Food Truck is looking for a franchisee who is dedicated to outstanding service, family-friendly, hungry for growth, and enjoys having fun. The ideal candidate is resourceful, timely, dedicated, and persistent. If this tenacious spirit of ingenuity sounds like you, opening a Candy Food Truck franchise may be the right move for you.

Candy Food Truck may welcome franchisees of all backgrounds in sales, marketing, finance, or business. Candy Food Truck is currently accepting queries for all towns and all states across the country.

A portable business means that franchisees can take their Candy Food Truck franchise wherever business calls. Operating out of a mobile truck can provide potentially lower overhead fees than other franchise opportunities. With little competition in a unique sector, franchisees can create their own schedule depending on how many clients they take on. A Candy Food Truck franchise can attend block parties, daycares, church events, fairs, festivals, schools, and weddings.

What Might Make a Candy Food Truck a Good Choice?

Opening a Candy Food Truck franchise may offer a more predictable outcome than investing in a completely new brand that could struggle to thrive in an already crowded and competitive industry. 

To be part of the Candy Food Truck franchise team, you should make sure you’re financially ready for an initial investment made up of a franchise fee and other startup costs. In addition, you should prepare yourself for ongoing fees that will include royalty and renewal fees. Franchisees will also need to meet the company’s set net worth and liquid capital requirements.

How To Open a Candy Food Truck Franchise

As you decide if opening a Candy Food Truck franchise is the right move for you, make sure you take time to explore the opportunity. Research the brand and your local area to see if a Candy Food Truck franchise would do well in your community. While competition is healthy, too much of it may not allow for the most possible growth.

Before making any financial commitment or signing an agreement, you must perform your due diligence and establish if this is the right opportunity for you. As part of your due diligence, you may want to speak to existing franchisees and ask the Candy Food Truck franchising team questions. 

If awarded a franchise, the Candy Food Truck brand provides franchisees with support ranging from start-up to ongoing assistance and a website, marketing campaigns, and training.
