Re: Food Trucks

@Skorec - I know you own an awesome wholesale/resale/catering/food truck business! 

Can you help @rperalta

 

One of your fellow members is an aspiring food truck owner. Do you have any reccommendations for @MassielC as she's starting up? 

How did you start your own business?

Re: Food Trucks

I would also love to hear information about this! We have a catering business and just switched to Quickbooks online.

Re: Food Trucks

Hi there, TheMonroes.

 

Thanks for reaching out here in the Community. I'd be glad to provide more information on setting up the QuickBooks account for your catering business.

 

During the initial setup of your QBO account, you'll be able to select your business type. The system will then create a basic Chart of Accounts based on this selection.

 

If you need to choose your business type or change it, this article will walk you through the steps: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1657386-how-do-i-change-my-business-type.

 

Here's some additional information on how the Chart of Accounts works within QBO: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1437026-chart-of-accounts-how-it-works-in-quickbooks-online.

 

You may want to consult with your accountant to be sure of the best way to set up your catering business.

 

I wish you the best of luck. I'm here if you have any other questions.

@jessbru99568, have you guys ever looked into going mobile?

Re: Food Trucks

Yes and no. Currently we do farmers markets, events, and shipping of our products. That's as far of mobile that we do. Smiley Happy

@jessbru99568, I think that's as far as most folks need Smiley Happy. I love working at farmer's markets, such good vibes. We used to run a small espresso machine attached to a generator and one of those large Arrowhead water jugs you see in office buildings. 

 

@TheMonroes, what kind of truck do you have?
