New York Times Mixing Cuisines, Mexicue Moves Beyond the Food Truck How often a food truck becomes a restaurant is unclear, but Julia Gallo-Torres, of Mintel, the market research firm, said it was probably an anomaly rather than the norm. “A lot of food truck start-ups just remain food trucks,” and often the owners burn out after a period of time, she said. “Food trucks are not sustainable because of the lifestyle. They tend to be owned by people who have to work and do all of the jobs that are involved there. It’s not something they want to do long-term.”

We are now all about innovation and individualisation. [People] want gluten-free, vegetables, hold-the-mayo, we want ‘this’ but we don’t want ‘that’, we’re very specific. But providing for that will push up costs and wait times, jeopardising McDonald’s’ core values of speed and time.”
