There are many benefits of becoming a member of the MN Food Truck Association. We now offer an out-of-network discounted membership option for trucks operating 50+ miles outside of the Minneapolis/St. Paul region. (Please indicate this in your application for membership)

  • Exposure & Leads: When the general public is looking for a food truck, they come to our website first. Members are, not only, listed on our website, but they have a personal profile they can update and add to as they need. This also allows consumers to search for your truck and request your truck directly. Through Twitter, we can promote daily serving locations as well as add your truck to closed groups that requests for food trucks are offered. Through Facebook we can add your events to our page for more exposure. By being on Instagram, it allows you even more audience exposure and ways to reach out to foodies. Additionally, the association gets leads frequently that we send out to all active members. These leads are usually for events that the customer is not looking for a particular truck but is open to booking any food truck.
  • Events: The Association hosts events itself or cohosts with another organization. Being a member gives you access to these events and, dependent on the event, will grant you discounts on event fees, early entry, and more.
  • Community: We host two all member meetings throughout the year to help food truck owners network with one another and share current info/news/best practices with its membership. We also host member appreciation events and networking nights during the “off” season.
  • Support: We are a group of over 100 food trucks. Together we promote food truck awareness, advocate for food truck rights and publicize the general awesomeness of the blossoming Minnesota food truck Scene.
