There are different financing options:

An SBA loan takes around 6 months (plus/minus 2 months depending how much time you dedicate to it). It requires more work but rates are better. They also require just 10% down.

A Conventional loan takes about a month. Is quicker but interest rates are higher and require 20% to 30% down payment.

Express loans are the quickest. They don’t require collateral or business plans. The rates are even higher and are usually caped at a max of $30K

You don’t need all the capital to start your business.

Yes, a generator will be needed if you are not at a permanent location where you can just plug into an energy source. There are two types of generators, silent and non silent which can vary from $1000 to $140000 . DELETED SECTION – Diesel generators are usually more efficient and tend to have longer life spans.

The portable generators will generate power for your food truck, but will be loud & can’t be used while driving. That means your refrigerator & freezer will not be on which means your food could spoil while driving. The durability is not as good as the rv style generators. Also the fuel tank is inside the generator so if it is refueled while hot it could explode.

Convection ovens are built with a fan placed in the back of the oven. When you turn on the convection setting, the fan blows warm air all around the inside of the oven, promoting rapid and even heating. The hot air in regular ovens just hangs around and sometime leads to uneven results if not rotated while baking.
Gas engines are relatively cheaper than diesel ones, when purchased brand new. The price of gas itself has been much cheaper for the past ten years than diesel, but you get greater fuel economy from diesel. Up to 30%-35% greater, according to the US Departments of Energy. Diesel engines tend to need more frequent checks and maintenance. Diesel’s are workhorses and are built to last. If maintained properly, you can easily get 300,000 miles on them. Of course, since diesels last longer you can get a better price on diesel than a gas one with comparable miles.
