Ditch the Cash, Embrace Safety: Transforming Food Truck Operations

Let’s set the scene. You’re working your food truck late into the night, serving the most mouth-watering tacos this side of town. Your till is full of cash, but with every passing minute, your heart thumps a bit louder. After all, having cash around is a bit like carrying a “Rob me, please!” sign on your back. Yikes! But wait, there’s a superhero waiting to swoop in and save the day – meet BlazeBite!

The Statistics: Starving for Safety

First off, you’ve got to understand that food trucks are loved for their cash-only tradition. It’s charming, in a retro kind of way. But this old-school charm comes with its share of, let’s say, ‘not-so-charming’ issues. A whopping 90% of thefts reported by small businesses are cash thefts (1). And according to a recent study, food trucks are 40% more likely to be targeted by thieves compared to brick-and-mortar restaurants (2). That’s enough to make your heart skip a beat, or two, or ten!
