#1 Stocking Dealer for Morgan Olson Foundation Trucks

We have the experience you need to create the perfect mobile business truck.

We live in a “come to me” world. You can order your groceries online and have Walmart bring them to your car. You can order anything you want on Amazon and have it shipped straight to your front door. It’s getting harder and harder to get people in your brick-and-mortar store because they want you to come to them.


From small-town fairs to big-city events, your competitors are meeting people where they’re at. Businesses can’t rely on people to come to them anymore. Now, they have to meet the customers where they’re at to survive.

 

You’re in the right place, and a mobile business truck is the answer. Go where the people are and open doors of opportunity for your business.


If you dream it, we can help you build it!

What size truck do I need?

We offer trucks from 14 feet to 24 feet. The right size truck for you will depend on the wants and needs of your mobile business. We recommend speaking with your upfitter to discuss all your options before committing to a certain size. 


Additionally, the price difference for each 2’ increment in size is very affordable. We recommend sizing up now and thinking long term!

Custom & Built to Order

Custom & Built to Order

Every truck is custom-built to suit your mobile business needs.

Every truck is custom-built to suit your mobile 

business needs.

The process starts with a meeting. We talk about everything you need in or on your truck. From there, we pick the correct chassis size that meets your needs. Then, we send that chassis foundation to our authorized upfitters and builders to create the rest of your custom truck. 


We work hard to make sure you get whatever you need for your 

mobile business.

  • Your truck is custom-made and built-to-order to meet the needs of your mobile business.
  • ​We work one-one-one with you and our up-fitters and builders from start to finish.
  • Air conditioning, custom front end, power mirrors, design, and more customization.

Just like every business is different, every food truck is different. We’re here to make sure you get the exact, and best, food truck you need to make money.

We’re here for you in the:

  • Foundational selection
  • ​Designing stages
  • ​Up-fitter buildout
  • ​Menu/Food Truck capabilities
  • ​State/local laws and codes
  • ​Loan process

We’re Here for You

We’re invested in you, and we want you to succeed.

We act as your counselor through the entire process.

When people come in looking for food trucks, pet grooming trucks, or mobile boutique trucks — they often don’t know what they need or even where to begin. They get lost in the weeds on things like how big it needs to be, what things the truck needs, and how to follow the state laws and codes. We understand all of it, and with a detailed understanding of your business, we work to make sure the mobile business truck we create is the one that you need. 


There are several options for your truck design. From the internal blueprints to how many inches of floor space you need, the numbers and choices can become too overwhelming to follow. We want your mobile business to be perfect from the inside out. It would be easy to just sell whatever we could and move on, but that’s not what we’re here for. We want to make sure you get exactly what you need. 


We have truck foundations and chassis in stock at our dealership. In fact, we’re one of the only dealerships in the area that keeps them on hand. From there, your exact chassis goes to upfitters who design it from the ground up. 


We want to make sure our upfitters are the best in the country, so we visit them—from California to Michigan. We’re checking for cleanliness, structure, and quality of services. If the upfitter is not up to standards and not producing quality work, we move on and find a new upfitter to design your mobile business.


This process doesn’t have to be complicated. We are there every step of the way to make it perfect. 


We’re even there for you on the little things. We help ensure you meet the codes necessary to run your mobile business. And we work with you through the bank to make sure you’re eligible for loan approval.

Hear from those we've helped...

“Bob and his team at Russell Barnett Ford of Tullahoma did a phenomenal job by developing a product that fits, like a glove, into the Food Trucks industry. As a builder, it is a pleasure building a commercial kitchen into a space that is designed from the start to house such a setup. Bob and his team are constantly touching base with the builders they work with and they always address any matter big or small.”

“Been working with Bob over at Russell Barnett’s Ford for a few years now, and we could not be happier. Not only is their customer service top-notch, but they have allowed us to increase our sales by being able to finance all of the customers we send their way. Great company to work with, and we see great things happening with them in the near future.”


Fabrizio Arenas

“We are custom food truck builders and have been in business for 10 years. When we first started our business we were building used food trucks. Several years into our business, Bob Trewyn reached out to us to see if we would be interested in doing our buildouts in new Ford trucks. He put together an entire package for our clients that would make owning a new truck and buildout affordable. This has helped our business tremendously. It has allowed us to have peace of mind knowing our clients are in a reliable vehicle. Bob has always gone above and beyond for our company and we are forever grateful for that. He has allowed us to grow and expand our business in the past few years and we are so thankful for him!”

Financing to Achieve Your Goals

New vs. Used

We specialize in consulting and building for NEW mobile business trucks. Using someone else’s custom truck is complicated and, in the end, more expensive.

The last thing you want is to invest $80,000-$150,000 to build out your mobile business on a used chassis that could have age, mileage, and wear and tear. You set yourself up for extra expenses related to repairs down the line. 


With food trucks specifically, used trucks come from all over the country. States have different laws and codes that you must follow. We know those codes and can help you no matter which state you’re from. It’s important to note that the process of changing an original food truck into a new custom food truck that meets requirements is a massive undertaking. Using someone else’s truck will take a lot of work and be expensive. We highly recommend getting a new, custom food truck built just for your business.

  • Used trucks do not work for everyone.
  • ​We understand state/local laws and codes.
  • ​We help you build your new food truck

We’re ready to guide you through the financials, laws, codes, and creation of your custom mobile business truck.

Take your brand to your customers. 

Make it easy. Make the money.

Think Outside the

Brick and Mortar

It’s getting harder and harder to get customers in
brick-and-mortar stores. Take your business to them.

We live in a “bring it to me” world. No matter how much generations or customer behaviors change, businesses must adapt to always meet the needs of customers. It’s not enough to throw a sign in your store window and hope the customers come—the industry and marketing world is too jam-packed. It’s busy, crowded, and noisy. Now, you have to think outside of the box—or at least out of the brick-and-mortar store.

  • Mobile business trucks allow you to reach new customers.
  • ​Take your business above the competition by meeting the "bring it to me" need.
  • ​Attend events all over the area instead of relying on just your building.

Chassis and Foundation

Unlike most food truck dealers, we keep chassis in stock.

During our initial meeting, we’re able to identify exactly what you need for your mobile business. From there, we can find the right chassis foundation for your food truck. Unlike most dealers, we have chassis in stock and on hand. Most other dealerships that offer food truck or mobile business buildouts have to outsource and get foundations from other dealers like us. We have things in stock, giving you a variety and a lower price.


Depending on your needs, your chassis can include: 

  • RV Mirrors
  • ​AC
  • ​Cruise Control
  • ​Luxury Driver's Seat
  • ​Jump Seat
  • ​Stereo With Bluetooth
  • ​Navigation & Back-Up Cameras
  • ​Curb Cameras
  • ​Additional Step
  • ​Stylish Wheel Covers
  • ​and More

Our preferred upfitter include:

  • Food Trucks South
  • Master Chef Mobile Kitchens
  • Legion Food Trucks
  • ​Delivery Concepts, Inc.

    Upfitters

    Built by the best.

    We use upfitters to build on to the chassis. They’re from across the country and have worked with major brands all over the globe. Although these talented upfitters are from places as far as California and Michigan, we visit their facility to audit for industry standards and updated processes. We want our clients to have the best food trucks on the market. To do that, we have to make sure everyone in the process is professional and consistently producing quality projects.

    • Built and designed by the best professionals from across the country.
    • ​We visit and audit the facilities often to make sure their work is top quality.
    • ​We work with up-fitters from coast to coast to get exactly what you need.

    We’re with you every step of the way.

    We even fly across the country to make sure you’re getting what you need.

    70+ Trucks on Order

    We fill our inventory with the

    Morgan Olson brand.

    We only stock our dealership with quality foundations and chassis. We believe the Morgan Olson brand is standard-setting quality. They’re an industry leader for mobile business trucks, so we only use their brand. 


    In addition to a quality chassis, they provide an extra 3 inches in their trucks. The average food truck chassis is 93 inches wide, but Morgan Olson’s trucks are 96 inches wide. Three inches doesn’t sound like a lot, but it changes everything. Major brands like Ben & Jerry’s and Chili’s trust Morgan Olson, and we do, too.

    • ​Trusted by several national brands
    • ​An extra 3 inches in width compared to other leading truck brands
    • ​With 1.5” stud walls, you’ll have 93” of buildable space
