Twisted Smoke Food Truck
Classic Barbecue with a Twist
Looking for a food truck for your event? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Backyard parties, open houses, company lunches, community events; really any gathering where your guests order what they want, when they want, and we make it fresh to order.
Twisted Smoke would love to serve you and your guests, and here’s where you’ll find the information you need to get started.
What You Need to Know
PLANNING YOUR EVENT –
All food is made to order. Twisted Smoke can make approximately 50-65 meals per hour, depending on the menu options.
For budgeting purposes, plan on $11+ per full meal and $5+ per snack size meal.
Twisted Smoke will arrive approximately 30-45 minutes before event to set up.
Our truck will need a level area, for parking and service, approximately the size of 2 parking spaces. We also require an 11 foot height clearance.
We do not require a power source, we run off a generator. If you do not want a generator running during your event, you must provide an adequate power source. (120 volt power box, preferably on its own breaker)
With approximately 30 minutes left in your event, we will let you know what your balance is. If there is money left to spend to meet your minimum, we would much rather you get more food.
After the event a final bill will be provided and a receipt can be emailed after payment.
We will need approximately 20-30 minutes for cleanup.
Our minimum truck fee is $400 in sales for up to 2 hours of service.
Each additional hour requires $150 minimum sales.
Sales minimums do not include 8% sales tax or 2% credit card fee.
There is a $2 per mile travel fee if event is over 30 miles from our kitchen.
Example: If an event is 40 miles away, there is an $80 travel fee.
A deposit of $400 (2 hour minimum service) and any travel fee is required to secure your event date and time.
The deposit for service only will be credited to your final bill (due at the end of event).
Balance due at the end of event is total sales, or minimum fees, whichever is larger (minus any service deposit monies).
Example: An event for 3 hours and 40 miles away would require $550 minimum sales; $400 for the first 2 hours and an additional $150 for the 3rd hour. A deposit of $480 ($400 service, $80 travel fee) is required. The total amount of food purchased is $580. The total bill due with tax is $626.40. A $400 deposit credit for service is applied and the amount due at the end of the event is $226.40 (plus 2% surcharge for credit payments if applicable).
MENU & PRICING –
All menu pricing is subject to change without prior notice.
Menu pricing is locked once a deposit has been paid.
Up to 4 menu items can be selected to be served.
Full size menu options come with a side – please select 1 side dish for your event.
A “snack” size menu is available upon request if full meals are not being served. Snack size items come with chips, sides are an additional cost. Minimum sales requirements are the same.
We will provide all necessary items for food consumption. (Condiments, cutlery, napkins, etc.)
